"The constant search for the deepest consciousness in the unconsciousness of the zeitgeist."
Angelo Accardi was born in a small town in southern Italy. He grew up inspired by traditional Italian art and modern interpretations of classical subjects. Always knowing he wanted to be an artist, he went to study fine arts at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples. Founded in 1752 by King Charles II, it is one of the oldest and most prestigious schools in the country. Shortly after his formal training Accardi started his personal studio in the early 1990s. This allowed him to continue studying painting and sculpture closer to his childhood home.
The creation of the studio allowed Accardi to embark on a personal artistic journey in which, to this day, he continues to develop some of the world's most intricate and enigmatic works in contemporary art. He continues to focus on the study of figures, both human and animated, and of the spaces they inhabit. Accardi incorporates famous and recognizable works of art dating back centuries. Some date back to ancient Roman sculpture and some more recently to contemporary art from this decade.
"Inside the world but beyond the spirit of the time. Time and space, foreground and background, subject and environment merge."
His "nod" to these artists encourages the audience to make connections between himself and the artwork. In addition to building relationships between the characters within the art. His paintings are artistic conversations that expand over the centuries. They are playful, ironic, whimsical and deeply relevant. Today, Accardi's artistic initiatives cross borders, exhibiting in many prestigious galleries around the world. In 2017 Eden Fine Art Gallery signed Accardi as one of their main contemporary talents. He has since held exclusive solo shows in London and Mykonos, as well as performances across the continent. Today, Accardi still lives and works in Italy, bringing his uniquely humorous eye to his contemporary expression.
