About the artist:
Federico Meriggi was born in Ivrea (Turin, Italy), in 1970. He is a freelance surveyor with a passion for art handed down to him by his maternal grandfather who owned paintings by Dalì, De Chirico, Morandi, and other painters, especially Italians. His parents kept alive his passion which recently came to light, his need to try to paint in his own hand. He is particularly attracted by the surrealism and abstract art of Miro and Kandinsky, of Sam Francis but also from Pollock's action painting and paintings by Basquiat, Andy Warhol, and Keith Haring. Tends to mix the techniques of all these painters, but in his paintings always emerges his improvisation of what he passes into the head when he picks up a brush. They are closely studied and designed paintings.
