Born in 1990 in Tarquinia, Alessandro Sicioldr began drawing and painting under the guidance of his father, himself a noted artist. A fascination with pigments and painting-supports led Sicioldr to Cennino Cennini’s Il Libro dell’Arte (The Craftsman’s Handbook), the famous guide to 15th-century methods of painting and the great masters’ secrets and techniques, subsequently adopted by Sicioldr in his own work.
Despite his young age, Sicioldr has generated international interest with his highly individual style. Works in oil, watercolour and graphite reveal his remarkable technical skills and interdisciplinary studies. Blending the imaginary, historical and symbolic with a personal vision, Sicioldr creates fascinating dreamlike atmospheres capable of ensnaring his viewers.
