Alessio Deli was born in Marino near Rome in 1981. After studying Art at Marino’s Art Institute, he went on to graduate with top marks from the Academy of Fine Arts of Carrara where he specialized in sculpture.
Deli is currently making a name for himself in the Italian art world with a series of life-size figurative sculptures made from recycled metals, plastics and wood. (See Alessio Deli under the Sculpture section).
Deli’s abstract paintings complement his sculptural work. The artist’s trademark aquamarine blue dominates the wood panels he uses as a support while inserted recycled metallic elements add a sculptural dimension. His drawings meanwhile serve as preparatory studies for his sculptures.
