Maurizio Battifora Biography
Maurizio Battifora The Pointillist
As a child, Battifora drew and painted everything he could. He also hoped to be a theater director or choreographer when he grew up. His parents encouraged his talent and he became an illustrator for children's books, while in school. Much of his inspiration comes from baroque and renaissance painters. Battifora is fascinated by the exaggerated motion, drama and tension in the old masters works. Beyond his Italian heritage, his sensibilities are that of a European artist even as he evolves and is influenced by the American culture. By 2008, Battifora’s own empirical and intuitive development drove his evolution as an artist, to that of a pointillist. His main body of work consists of large dots of acrylic on canvas, requiring immense discipline and is more graphic and bold then Seurat's pointillism of an earlier age. Working in series and primarily medium to large size canvasses, his work mostly sells out as he moves to new and then revisits earlier conceptions and stories he enjoys telling. He has participated in solo and group exhibits. Battifora’s paintings are in private collections in the US and Europe.
"I want to communicate directly with the viewer as if they are part of the painting not simply a spectator. I listen to the opinion and greatly appreciate those who contemplate my work. To me that's when Art closes the circle. My idea touches someone else's soul and then comes back to me with their own interpretation."
