My Bio
Born in 1962, Campanelli start painting at 13 years old, and immediately the concept “art- life” becomes inseparable.
In 1979 the first important exhibition, in Venice.
He is a self-taught, he plays with the contrasts, mixes rules and instinct, method and improvisation, control and impulse.
He is an “unlabeled” artist, he deftly measures chromatic harmonies, structural balances, matter calibrations; his paintings are full of an intense and sensual lyricism, but at the same time they are also full of mystery and evocation.
Over time, he looks for the “unmade” form of beauty. Often this continuous pursuit becomes laborious and wearing.
His work is uneasy and enigmatic, it’s an emotional and destabilizing travel for spectators. Anyone who looks at these brush strokes formulates his interpretation.
So, different gazes become a metaphor which explains the diversity of life.

Lucia Proganò

Nato nel 1962, Campanelli inizia a dipingere a soli 13 anni, e subito il binomio arte-vita diventa inscindibile.
Nel 1979 la prima mostra importante, a Venezia.
Da autodidatta, gioca sui contrasti, miscela regola e istinto, metodo e improvvisazione, disciplina e pulsione.
Libero da qualsiasi etichetta dosa sapientemente armonie cromatiche, equilibri strutturali, calibrature materiche; dà vita a opere cariche di un lirismo intenso e sensuale, ma anche misterioso ed evocativo.
Il suo percorso si evolve, nel tempo, alla continua ed estenuante ricerca della forma “disfatta” della bellezza.
Le sue tele, difficili ed enigmatiche, offrono allo spettatore un viaggio emotivo coinvolgente e destabilizzante. Ogni sguardo che si posa su queste pennellate metabolizza una propria lettura; la diversità di ogni singolo approccio diventa, così, metafora della varietà e della complessità della vita stessa.
