Born in Rome in 1981, Fabio Imperiale studied as a graphic designer before changing direction and devoting himself to art. His work has met with growing success, particularly in Rome, where he has collaborated with a number of galleries and held various one-man exhibitions.
Imperiale has developed a distinctive style centering on themes of solitude and alienation. Preferring a subdued palette and a pale background, the artist typically depicts his subjects from behind, preserving their anonymity. In his latest works, Imperiale focuses on the female form, captured in moments of intimacy. The occasional use of antique paper, vintage postcards and old envelopes as a support creates an intersection of past and present and reinforces the sense of his nudes as metaphors for the fragility and transience of existence.
