Matteo Massagrande
Artist / Painter

Born in 1959 in Padua, Italy, Matteo Massagrande has become both an outstanding contemporary Italian painter, and a seminal artist of the figurative, representational movement in European painting. He has been exhibiting his work since 1973, and has shown extensively around the world, his paintings featuring in many public and private collections. His works are exhibited alongside the art of such masters as Lopez Garcia, David Hockney and Vincent van Gogh.

Matteo Massagrande is a highly accomplished painter of empty domestic interiors. His sumptuously-rendered spaces evoke a powerful sense of human presence and the passage of time.

Massagrande proposes a balance between melancholy and optimism. This principle of harmony extends across the entirety of his production, both the technical and conceptual. He has explicitly stated that he is searching for the harmony that underpins humanity and the possibility of regeneration through allegiance to the tenets of great art. These paintings express and bring that idea to life.
