Athos Faccincani is among the most successful Italian artists. Also known abroad thanks to important exhibitions, including staff at the European Parliament in Strasbourg and at the Grand Hayatt Hotel in Tokyo.
He has exhibited in many Italian and foreign cities (London, Paris, Chicago, Vienna, Madrid, Los ANgelse, Zurich, New York ...) and has also been nominated as European Personality 2008, in Rome in Campidoglio.
Self-taught artist who is trained in the workshops of the masters of his time, the likes of Guidi, Seibezzi and Novati. Faccincani realizes, in his first crative period, works with an Expressionist flavor, characterized by a strong introspection and dark colors. It studies attitudes and behaviors of the marginalized, of prisoners and patients of psychiatric hospitals.
The young production throws it into a profound existential crisis that led him, at the end of the '70s, to move away from the canvases for a period. With the birth of his son Mattia finds the joy of living and the desire to paint.
His style changes radically and approaches Impressionism: landscapes are the new protagonists of his works; the warm colors of the Greek Islands, the Amalfi Coast and the Ligurian Riviera dominate the scene. Small brushstrokes, vivid and clear hues that catapult the observer in summer atmospheres and in the luxuriant nature of the Mediterranean.
