Andrea Angione

The Italian photographic artist Andrea Angione’s exhibition “Terribilis est locus iste “ features eight large scale works. The ordinary people of the streets are the real protagonists of these dramatic pieces, which show great technical virtuosity and refer in a bold manner to Caravaggio and other Old Masters of the 16th and 17th centuries.

Andrea Angione was born in Orbetello (Tuscany) in 1977. After he graduated he took his first steps as a director and made several short films. He studied dramaturgy, direction and photography at the Cinema School of Grosseto and at the Cinema National School in Florence. In 2006 he won the first prize at Capalbio Cinema contest in the junior category, as director of the short film Insieme (Together), which was a co-working project with the pupils of a primary-school class.

Working in the area of film and cinematography led to digital photography and he soon developed a remarkable personal technique, in which painting and photography fuse completely into each other. Angione´s use of light emphasizes the dramatic and symbolic content of his art works.
After his first exhibition as a photographer “Terribilis est locus iste” (Porto Ercole, 2009) he received the opportunity to show his works at Palazzo Barberini in Rome (2009) and at Galleria Permanente in Milan (2009). The same year he won the important award Premio Arte Mondadori (1 Prize, photography category). Two further exhibitions – “Nec spe nec metu” (Porto Ercole, 2010) and Fortitudo Mea in Luce (Capalbio, 2011) – put him in the spotlight and were greatly appreciated by the audience as well as the critics.
