Note on the artist
Andrea Di Marco was born in Palermo, Sicily, where he still lives. He began to exhibit his work in the 1990s after his graduation from the Fine Arts Academy of Urbino. He soon became quite well-known here in Italy as one of the four main exponents (along with Alessandro Bazan, Francesco De Grandi and Fulvio Di Piazza) of the ”Nuova Scuola Palermitana” or New School of Palermo. Although their individual styles differ, these four artists present a new approach to figurative pictorial narration, choosing both traditional subjects and subjects inspired by the new international iconic imaginary. To use a fashionable word, popular in the last few years, we could say that their art is “glocal”. The apex of the group’s fame was reached in 2001 with an exhibition entitled “Palermo Blues” which was held first in Palermo in the “Cantieri Culturali della Zisa” and then in Milan at the “ Cartiere Vannucci”. Soon after this they parted ways, each following his own road and their stylistic and thematic differences have become gradually more pronounced.
Since then Andrea Di Marco has participated in many exhibitions, both collective and individual, in Italy and abroad distinguishing himself for work which combines strongly traditional features with a refined conceptual search, through a sort of anthropological cataloguing of places and things.
In this exhibition at “Il Granaione” Montestigliano a series of painting and drawings from various periods will be exhibited, including a selection of new works.
