Lives and works in Villafranca of Verona, Italy.

Research

Italian artist, born in Villafranca di Verona in 1977, graduated in Industrial Design at the Politecnico di Milano, Marcello De Angelis expresses itself through a high quality painting that reveals a formal and attentive technique, unique in its kind: the injection painting. In the constant evolution of language, De Angelis organizes, in the works of great or small size, the pictorial sign through color distributed by a syringe, creating swirls and lines, tracks and paths of pictorial extraordinary smoothness and bewitching iridescence. But beyond the purely formal level, his research reveals, the man’s deep  attempt to order the world of the visible and the invisible, to try to re-do it, according to a design that is project and destiny of the artistic making of all time. From here the titles of the works, which now refer to metaphysical dimensions, now emphasize the identity of the artist at work, like Prometheus at work, while he is designing, for us, the world.
