Fabio Coruzzi
Philippe: You Gotta Try It



Fabio Coruzzi merges painting and photography into one imaginative image that offers a new outlook on an otherwise ordinary urban scene. His artworks represent an authenticity unlike any other: layered, textural, controversial, open to imagination, colorful, personal, and inspiring. Fabio Coruzzi used acrylic paint, oil pastel, watercolor, ink and screen print on paper to create this one-of-a-kind original artwork. It is signed by the artist on the front bottom right. This colorful 20 inch tall by 16 inch wide artwork is framed in a white wood framed, wired and ready to hang. Size includes frame. Affordable local Los Angeles, US and worldwide shipping. A certificate of authenticity is included. Fabio Coruzzi was born in Foggia, Italy in 1975, and currently lives in Los Angeles. He is interested in the urban environment: the city, a town, a village - precious sources for human development and evolution. “Like any large metropolitan areas, London’s urban environment represents the jungle in which human being is finding recovery for its neurosis. It’s a melting pot of different gestures, different perspectives. Mixed media mold together these different perspectives, creating the urban environment. Contemporary culture is made of controversy: modernity includes ugliness, imperfection, and contamination, anything that creates texture.” "I wish that each painting I make should be like a poem of the place where I've been. I wish to become a poet of our time, like somebody would tell: "I've been there", but telling that my way, telling the audience that, no matter where we are, in a boulevard or in a restaurant, each single place is like an empty box that needs to be filled with the intense energy of our existence. Each place leaves a mark, like a scar, inside us. I wish that scar becomes poetry." “…Provocative and ironic, Fabio Coruzzi’s language describes scenarios of social criticism, reflecting the cultural reality of our metropolitan society, sandwiched, as he says, “between the concrete and the asphalt”. Anonymous figures, chaotic spaces, urban life’s scenes, women and men in their working environments, athletes and hooligans at sport events, traffic of the city... Life flows incessantly within Fabio Coruzzi’s work and the author become a faithful witness of it…” -Maria Vinella, art critic EDUCATION 2001-2002 Graphic Design studies at London College of Printing – BTEC Diploma Graphic Design 2002-2005 Illustration studies at London College of Communication – BA of Arts – Illustration Printmaking Studies – London College of Communication – 2002 Photography Studies – London College of Communication – 2006 Advanced screen printing studies – London College of Communication – 2007 EXHIBITIONS 2017 AAF New York, NY 2016 Topography of Life – Artspace Warehouse – Los Angeles New York Affordable Art Fair – New York 2015 New York Affordable Art Fair – New York 2015 Pop Art Shakeup – Artspace Warehouse – Los Angeles 2014 Why War? – The Freud Museum – London Affordable Art Fair Hampstead – London Papergirl Belfast - PS2 House - Belfast Affordable Art Fair Battersea, London – Bicha Gallery London Art Fair – Bicha Gallery 2013 AAF Singapore – Bicha Gallery Sound Sight Exhibition – Shaw Gallery, Trinity School – London Affordable Art Fair Battersea – Bicha Gallery Cityscapes – Medici Gallery – London Affordable Art Fair Stockholm – represented by Bicha Gallery Not A Drop – 4749 Tanner Street Gallery – London Going Underground - Shoreditch Town Hall Basement – London AAF Hampstead - Bicha Gallery 21st Biennale of Humour and Satire – Gabrovo Museum - Bulgaria People in Motion – Artspace Warehouse – Los Angeles AAF New York - Bicha Gallery AAF Hong Kong - Bicha Gallery Commonplaces – The Hackney Cut – London AAF Brussels - Bicha Gallery London Art Fair – Bicha Gallery 2012 Art For All – Medici Gallery – London Affordable Art Fair – Singapore – Bicha Gallery ELP group show – Galleria Ostrakon – Milan Affordable Art Fair – London – Bicha Gallery Affordable Art Fair – Stockholm – Bicha Gallery Printhaton – Foreman’s Smokehouse Gallery – London Affordable Art Fair – New York – Bicha Gallery Alimentum s.p.a. – Fondazione Banca Del Monte di Foggia – Italy Waiting for the Sun – solo exhibition – Bicha Gallery – London 2011 Qijiang International Print Festival – Chongqing – China Affordable Art Fair – Bicha Gallery – Battersea – London Human rights? – Opera Campana dei Caduti – Rovereto - Italy Fishwick Papers – The Smokehouse Gallery – London MAGNET OPEN ART PROJECT – Concord, New Hampshire – USA RARITIES – Hastings/Brighton 13 ELP Annual Exhibition – Triangle Gallery – London Show Me The Monet – Royal College of Art – produced by BBC Dreams – The Freud Museum – London LightBite 2011 – Nottingham – UK Type/Script – Chapel Gallery – Ormskirk 2010 Artisti Mitteleuropei 2010 – Casa della Cultura – Calitri(AV) – Italy Wishing – ArteOra Spazio Arte Contemporanea – Foggia – Italy The Public Are Not Invited – The Nottingham Workshop - UK ELP Box Set 2010 Launch – 242 Gallery – London 6×4 Postcard Exhibition – Yorkshire ArtSpace – Sheffield Link – ArteOra Gallery – group show curated by Maria Vinella – Foggia – Italy Penang International Printmaking Exhibition – Penang State Museum – Malaysia Freud Experience – solo exhibition – Freud Café Gallery – London A Suite of Lighted Rooms – Pushkin House Centre for Russian Culture- London Acqua Bene Comune – Foggia – Italy Twelve – Space Gallery – London Print for Peace 2010 – Arte AC Tecnologico Institute – Monterrey – Mexico Prize Winner – “Copertine al Tratto” 2010 – Subway Edizioni – Milan – Italy C’era una volta Pasolini – group show – Galleria Terre Rare – Bologna – Italy F.A.C.T.S.– Center for the Study in Political Graphics – Los Angeles – USA London Fashion Week – MariaFrancesca Pepe collection – Somerset House – London 2009 The Grand Plasto-Baader-Books – Kaleid Gallery – London Alexandria MiniPrint Biennal – Bibliotheca Alexandrina Conference Center – Egypt Segni 20×20 – Micro Macro Gallery – Turin One Night Only – group show – Shoreditch Town Hall – London Quijiang International Print Festival 2009 – Quijian – China Eco Art Project ’09 – Rome IMPACT Centerpiece 09 – SpikePrint Studio – Bristol Pasquale Siniscalco Gallery – Milan Estetica 09 – Church of S.S.
