BIOGRAPHY

ANGELO ACCARDI, from a small town near Naples, in the South of Italy. Angelo Accardistudied fine arts at the Art Academy of Naples. In the course of his artistic development, Accardi has been on a constant search for new sensations using mixed media to depict figures against differing social backgrounds.Accardi’swork at the beginning was on the representation of the human body, as well as by pictorial and symbolic art. Accardi draws from this focus in every one of his collections as he illustrates surreal visions of everyday life under realistic backdrops of urban landscapes.In the last three decades, Accardi’sartistic path led him to contemplate social representations through collections like MisplacedHuman Collection, and Blend. These collections reveal the contradictions in every day, working with commonplace objects and backdrops making the created scene more relatable. Using humor, symbolism, and tributes to famed artists before him Accardi represents culture, history, and even a prediction of the future.He has exhibited in personal and collective exhibitions all over the world. He was invited to exhibit at the Italian Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial with hisMisplacedworks.
