Michele Petrelli Painter

Michele Petrelli Painter


Italian Artist, illustrator, creative worked from 20 years, painting enthusiast since a young boy. He took a degree at the artistic education highschool. In 1991 Michele left his university studies and he had a strong breakdown. He leaves the blackest darkness of the mind, with the help of his family and two dear friends. In 1999 he gets the title of scenography technician.
During the first part of his life he did not have much painting. He drew horrible figures that seem to come from his emotional states. they were monochromatic designs with a strong black presence.
Petrelli was not peaceful and that you could see from his life that was quite messy. For ten years, Petrelli lives happily with his partner away from the city. He has painted a lot in these years.
He's devoted a personal, "bright" neo-impressionism.
Michele Petrelli describes the modern world through splashes of colour, accurately matched following the nature of colour itself, which settles on objects and reflexes itself through ambiance following the physical laws of light, observing matter in analytic way, but also trascending and abstract it with a personal taste, mere realism.
He loves drawing his illustrations, portraits, graphic novels, etc. with pencil or with traditional techniques. He prefers oil, watercolors or acrylics.

His paintings are exhibited in many Italian and international galleries.
