In the middle of nowhere
Giacomo Montanaro was born in Torre del Greco (NA) in 1970. He attended the High school of Art, then enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples, graduating in 1993 with honors with Maestro Augusto Perez. He began to paint very young with any material, and is immediately noted in the Neapolitan artistic environment. His painting goes towards experimentation and innovation; the distinctive element of his painting is the human figure, caught in its most synthetic traits, of great emotional impact. In 2002 he abandoned canvases and colors and started painting with acids on photographic paper.
Over time, the artist's experimentation represents a perfect point of fusion between the art of painting and photography, as in the latest projects: In the middle of Nowhere and Interior landscapes.
