Michele Monfroni

Profile

 

Born in Carrara on 12th April 1972, Michele Monfroni received his basic training in art and sculpture from an early age by frequenting his father Luciano's studio.
In 1993 he obtained a diploma from the "Pietro Tacca" Professional Institute of Marble in Carrara, and immediately began working in the studio producing classical and contemporary work.

He subsequently forged his own artistic path, richly characterized by existential and expressionistic features which are removed from figurative representation and delineate smooth shapes, replete with organic vitality, and emblematic forms in which the human figure emerges as a central living, breathing element of his sculpture.

The development of this personal artistic path left enough room for experimentation in new visual languages of communication, merging a lithic material such as marble with wood, commingling forms and combining their value to give life to representations as interpretations of reality.
