Marco Spaggiari

Born in Correggio in 1974, Marco Spaggiari now lives and works in Fabbrico. He gained a diploma in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna before a degree in the History of Art and Aesthetics. Spaggiari works across various mediums, from design to painting to photography.

In his small mixed media on wood works, colour is the main protagonist. Whether the scenes display elements of real life or are seemingly abstract, Spaggiari’s distinctive style is clear. He crops, blurs and layers images and shapes in bright, bold colours – simultaneously drawing the eye to the superficial appearance and beyond to the essence of the subject.
