BIO&CRITICS

| Lombardia | Claudio Monnini Art

The artist

Painter, (but also architect and set designer) was born in Milan in 1965. Besides a thriving cooperation with Wannabee Gallery in Milan, where he has been exhibiting his work in solo and group shows, he has been taking part of many public shows in Italy and abroad. Claudio Monnini’s painting is connoted by a secure, strong and quick paintbrush, determined by his knowledge of drawing which does not need the help of a camera to reach a strong and expressive realism. In the new Italian figurative scene, he is considered one of the most significant portraitists.
