Alessandro Siviglia is an Italian artist born in Salerno in 1982 and now living in Rome. He was initially drawn to street art, where he was able to express his artistic interests by graffiti writing on large public spaces. After a 15 year stretch of taking a bold, guerrilla approach to art Siviglia began to hone his current style which combines his street art background with more traditional artistic conventions.
In his figurative works, Siviglia emphasizes the difference between a painting and reality, and the different ways of seeing, or perceiving, the world around us. His work reflects the concept of relativity and combines people, lifestyles, and stray animals while accounting for both his observations from cities and his experience with street art.
Siviglia’s paintings bring to mind the work of Picasso with a nod to the Cubism era. He has exhibited in Italy, the United States, and Hong Kong and has received several notable prizes.
