Enrico graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Bologna. He works in a unique painting style on panel with painstaking attention to detail, strong colour and a quite mystical light. His work sits somewhere between the great nineteenth century tradition (especially of the Pre - Raphaelites, between the veils of sharpness of John Everett Millais or William Henry Hunt, and the influence of Caspar David Friedrich) and a photographic process offering a sublime reality (clouds, beaches, prairies and woods, all parts of nature which he cherishes). His paintings are both calm and restless, mysterious and worldy and have an extraordinary internal energy and mystical light.
He has had numerous solo shows at galleries and museums, exhibited widely in groups and has won numerous awards internationally. He is recognised as one of the most promising young artists in Italy.
Enrico’s purpose in producing this large-scale work is to create a greater involvement in the viewer with astounding perspective while preserving a very high level of detail. Here we are drawn into an intimate scene within a forest merging with a broader view of the surrounding mountains together with cloud formations and a part-illuminated wood. It is easy to feel as if you are in the scene and yet removed from it.
