Giampiero Abate was born in Rome in 1970. His artistic career began around 1990, initially becoming passionate about advertising. He accidentally discovers the airbrush as a pictorial tool and acquires a basic model for the first experiments and to acquire the technique. He understands the expressive potential and, despite not having an artistic background, he begins to make the first paintings.
EVENTS & EXHIBITIONS
In 2015 he is co-founder of the Arts in Rome association, thanks to which he comes into contact with the world of painting and drawing and allows him to learn and learn more about the techniques. He therefore left the personalization sector to devote himself fully to painting. He followed many basic and in-depth courses and learned drawing and anatomical figurative painting from many Italian and foreign artists including Carlo Alberto Palumbo, Glenn Vilppu, Ciro Palumbo. Taking up the initial passion for dynamism and narration, he explores the themes of classical (especially Baroque) and contemporary painting and applies his computer and graphic knowledge to the design of his paintings. The use of 3D software allows him to create the figures and settings of his works to lead to his first personal exhibition dedicated to this method: Ultrareale.
