Alessio Vaccari was born in Pisa in 1977. He approaches painting at about twenty years old; after the diploma of technical expert and two years of Faculty of Natural Sciences of Pisa, decides to follow his vocation and enroll in the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence.
Subsequently he moved to Rome to complete his studies specializing in decoration and obtaining the teaching qualification in Art History and Art and Image. Over the years he has matured his artistic research through the stubborn and passionate study of the great figurative tradition in an ideal line that includes Roman naturalistic painting, Vermeer, Chardin, Friedrich, Seurat, Hammershöi, Giacometti, Ferroni, Guccione. Unrivaled personalities, all part of a spiritual family, united by the need to elaborate, through the tools of the trade, the feeling of indefiniteness that belongs to space, to the things themselves, to the memory that keeps them. His first source of inspiration is always the space and the light that structures it; however it is difficult to say exactly what the artist wants to express, it's more a certain feeling … the vibration of the light, the sigh of motionless time, the indefinite perception of being.
“I remember as a child that the perception of space in the playroom in relation to small toys that I always preferred worried me, sometimes I felt the sensation of infinity similar to the recurring dream of falling into the void.
He currently lives and works in Rosignano Solvay, Leghorn.
