Born 1987, Barletta, Italy
Lives and works in Milan, Italy
Tony Fiorentino was born in Barletta in 1987. After his studies, he moved to Carrara where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts and founded a space for young rising artists’ solo and collective exhibits. The work of Tony Fiorentino is characterized by a continuous search for expression and experimentation through several materials and practices. Objects, thoughts and actions turn into compositions that display a narrative and poetic impact, by which he comments visually on our human condition with all our troubles as well as our social and existential issues. In 2007 he won a scholarship that allowed him to attend the Anotati Skoli Kalon Tecknon in Athens for a year. He then moved to Amsterdam and London. In 2013, he was invited to the CSAV Artist Research Laboratory at Antonio Ratti’s Foundation, with the visiting professor Matt Mullican. He won several awards as an emerging artist, among which the Talent Prize-Meta Energia at the MACRO Museum, Rome (2012). He was invited to take part in several exhibitions in Italy and abroad, among which are: Concrete Ghost – Cinque Mostre, American Academy in Rome (2014); Contemporary locus 5, Domus Lucina, Bergamo (2013), Dominium melancholiae, Spazio Salenbauch, Venice (2013); Ragazze, Viafarini, Milan (2013); Off site / Not in place #3, Museum of Contemporary Art, Lissone (2013); Underneath the Street, the Beach, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2012); Open House, Reappropriation & Possession, Salon Flux, London (2012); Officine dell’Arte, Viafarini/Careof/DOCVA, Milan (2010). He currently lives and works in Milan.
