Raffaele Minotto was born in Padua in 1969. He attended the Academy of Fine Arts, painting course, to Venice, where he graduated in 1991.
His artistic research focuses on the study of the figure and its interaction with the surrounding environment. Pay attention to the visual perception of the images through the study of the 'color matter' and the 'sign': in paintings of recent years, in particular, favors a balance, a dialogue, between pictorial matter and drawing. Besides painting, he adds engraving, focusing above all on the etching and drypoint technique.
In 1995 realizes his first personal exhibition, at the 'Yesterdays Actuality' Costume History Center in Padua and from this moment begins to exhibit its works continuously. 'Via Euganea', exhibition created in Padua in 2003 curated by Giorgio Segato, it documents well the intense work done in these years. In more recent times, in 2009, Minotto's painting has been selected for 'Contemplations': wide exhibition curated by Alberto Agazzani who proposed, in the Sismondo Castle of Rimini, an effective point of view on Italian painting. In 2010 proposes a new cycle of works on the theme of 'reflections'.
