Alessandro Roma (b. 1977, Milan)
Alessandro Roma graduated at Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera of Milan in 2001. The artist’s research is characterized by a predominant pictorial approach, resulting from his academic education and early years activity. More recently, Roma investigated and adopted different techniques, exploring casting, printing on fabric, ceramics and collage. This lead to a whole new repertoire of inner landscapes, arising from both real experiences and literary sources, that transforms his imagination into something tangible and accessible to the viewer.
