Michelino Iorizzo was born in Rome in 1971 where he graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts of Rome in 1993. He then went on to study at Hubei University, China).
After having started by representing abstract-figurative landscapes, he continues his artistic research by devoting himself to female portraits.
Mysterious, sometimes dreamy and melancholic, the faces depicted by Iorizzo do not really exist, except in his imagination, in the memory of a fleeting encounter or in the artist’s most intimate dreams. Iorizzo digs into the pictorial material, corrodes the surface, letting emerge on each face a patina of antiquity that links it to the past. Between anxiety and concreteness, the works of the artist put forward a vibrant and passionate painting, oscillating between realistic research and conscious transformation. With a versatile talent that ranges from painting to sculpture, from ceramics to the technique of ancient icons, all of Iorizzo’s works bear witness to his restless and visionary spirit.
The work of Michelino Iorizzo is exhibited at the Etruscan Museum “Claudio Faina” in Orvieto, Italy, after having been presented at the Museum of Modern Art, Hubei Provence, China, and has been the subject of various reports on Italian national television.
