Biography of Claudio Filippini

Claudio Filippini was born in Castenedolo (Brescia) in 1953. He attended the drawing courses of the Bresciani Artists Association and his activity began in 1976, the year of his first solo exhibition followed by numerous other exhibition events. Among these we remember, in 2003, the solo exhibition curated by Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz, artistic director of Brescia Museums and completed by an important publication. In May 2010, the artist exhibited at the Colossi Contemporary Art Gallery in an exhibition entitled Suspensions and, again with the Colossi Gallery, took part in two important group shows, LUNA and the other. The art side of the Moon, dedicated to the 40th anniversary of the moon landing, in September-November 2009 and Marylin. The art of beauty, curated by Carlo Occhipinti at Villa Ponti, in Arona, in November 2010-February 2011.
The Art Critics Giovanna Galli, Marta Mai, Tonino Zana, Claudio Donneschi and Ilaria Bignotti wrote about him.

Artistic research
Claudio Filippini's pictorial language is a faithful witness and descendant of Italian figurative research, the son of a realism of suspended times and places. The artist in fact, through a careful and coherent research, often starts from the selection of existing places, often urban, but also domestic interiors, and translates them into pictorial photograms, realized in the purest oil technique on canvas. His works are so still-images of the artist's gaze that he must "possess" the real to recreate it and reread it through the perfection of the pictorial act. As Maurizio Bernardelli Curuz rightly observed, a few years ago, Filippini is a figurative witness of the contemporary, painting works belonging to a "cooled landscape, which gives an account of the new ways of observing man in post-industrial civilization". At the same time, behind the apparent adherence to the truth of his works, lies the dimension of memory and memory, while mimetic perfection vanishes into evanescent icons. In fact, the artist often plays on suspense and surprise, as if he wanted to tell us something more, or perhaps just to suggest it, leaving us the possibility of giving a face and a meaning to his world of mysterious beauty.
