ANDREA GNOCCHI is the third generation of a family of painters. Born in 1975, in Gallarate, in the province of Varese, he began his artistic training within the walls of his father's art studio, where, from his childhood, he found himself immersed in a world of colour. He then attended a Fine Arts College and later The Academy of Belle Arti di Brera, Milan.
After graduating from the Academy of Belle Arti, and after a variety of experiences within painted wall murals and advertising fields, he realized that painting was his true path. He thus started researching different media and painting techniques, whilst approaching modern art without however, forgetting studies carried out by the Old Masters.
Throughout his journey he tackled various different themes, commencing from a study of industrial suburbs, where he began being recognized for his icons, examining, in “Pop Art” style, the world of Motor Art
But it is through his perspective research Through glimpses of the city that he managed to express his art to its best, thus succeeding in reaching the unique pictorial style that distinguishes him today.
In recent years he has also found himself taking on themes such as sport and cinema. His search for continuous stimulation and his pictorial identification, lead him to extend himself by creating cycles of different subjects.
Since 2001 he has become a professional artist. He began collaborating with various art dealers who spread his works through exhibition channels. He then moved on to be represented, by both national and international art galleries, in a crescendo of both quality and importance.
To date he has participated in approximately one hundred collective and personal exhibitions. CASA D'ARTE SAN LORENZO is his main Italian gallery of reference, which has, for 10 years, taken care of his artistic growth and brought him, amongst the many events, to exhibit at the Piaggio Museum in Pontedera with his 'ICONIC' exhibition in 2015, and to the Palazzo Ducale of Lucca with his 'KUBRICK TRA CINEMA E PITTURA' exhibition in conjunction with the Lucca Film Festival Europa Cinema in April 2019.
