Oliviero Fiorenzi (1992, Osimo, Italy. Lives and works in Milan) living between two contexts, has developed a particular sensitivity to the theme of the landscape. After graduating from NABA, Milan and spending a period at Willem de Kooning Academie, Rotterdam, the artist builds through his personal experience a complex figurative sign apparatus, thanks to which he enters into a relationship with the context he operates in, producing pictorial and sculptural installations. With a strong attention to the variables present in the context around him, he develops his graphic / pictorial research drawing on the imagination that we enrich in the years of childhood and adolescence. This is the time in which we live the world through the forms of play, and it is precisely through these experiences, lived and then methodically evoked, that Fiorenzi has created his personal mythology: a constantly updated visual alphabet, a tool with which he builds, according to the different projects, new architectures of meaning.
