Biography

Sergio Fiorentino was born in Catania (Italy) in 1973.
After his classical studies and the Academy of Fine Arts he devoted himself for years to the study and research of design and decorative arts of the twentieth century.
In 2011 he resumed painting. From that moment, he started various exhibitions in public offices and private galleries. He now lives and works in Noto, a UNESCO World Heritage site on the southeastern edge of Sicily.
In Sergio’s well known series (The Dreamers, The Twins, The Faces, The Saints, The Diverts), the investigation of the body and its external appearance seems like a priority: the artist is not lost in scenographic effects, nor takes refuge between the wounds of feeling.
His creations are incarnations of a classical beauty of formal clarity that links up with realism to magical realism and the Italian twentieth century style from Donghi to Sironi to Casorati.
The same choice of subjects is indicative; although drawn from real models, their athleticism emphasizes the structure of the limbs, the strength and elasticity of organs that aim only at taking appropriate postures. And yet, on closer inspection, the blue – or the white – that surrounds almost all the characters opens up a gap on further dimensions.
