Matteo Casali (Italy, 1994) is an artist in the field of visual arts, working with paintings and signs, but experimenting with photography and video. In his pictorial works, Casali seeks the synthesis of the mark-stain and the rapidity of execution to capture the immediacy and poetry of the moment, be it of a landscape or a portrait. The research on the loss of identity that a place or a body undergoes and the renewed truth that they find in a new balance, be it pictorial or digital, is the basis of Casali’s studio.
Fascinated by new technologies, he studies new methods to collaborate, work and exhibit at a distance. After graduating from the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, studying with prof. Luca Reffo in Atelier 12, he has been collaborating since 2020 with Magazzeno Art Gallery in Ravenna and with FMB Art Gallery in Rome; from 2021 with GArt Gallery of Pescara and RVB Arts of Rome. Furthermore, since 2021 he is the curator of NOTSpace, a virtual exhibition hall.
He currently works and studies in Venice, Italy.
