1956 · Italy
Arcangelo is a painter who prefers to manage the "too much" rather than the "too little". His work represents more than a painting in the traditional sense, it’s a drama, a staging of conflicting evidence. This led him to become interested in the southern part of the world, that's why he puts Africa at the heart of his travels and he probably made this cradle of humanity on center of his pictorial expression.
In 1976, he enrolled at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome where he graduated in 1980. In 1981, he moved to Milan. Important galleries and foreign institutions exhibit his work: gallery Tanit-Munich, Buchmann gallery in Basel, la maison de la culture in Bonn (Bonner Kunstverein ), Ingrid Raab in Berlin, Maeght-Lelong in Paris, Studio Guenzani in Milan, PAC in Milan, Edward Totah Gallery in London, Art Museum Fukuyama in Japan, Kodama Gallery in Osaka, le centre d'art contemporain La Ferme du Buisson in Marne la Vallée, Noisiel, La Galleria Civica in la Palazzina, dei Giardini in Modène, La Galleria Civica d'Art contemporain de Trente, la Galerie der Stadt in Stuttgart, le Café Florian in Venice, le musée d'Art Moderne (Réfectoire des Jacobins) in Toulouse, Alice Pauli gallery in Lausanne, Lorenzelli Arte in Milan, Galerie Kaj Forsblom in Helsinki.
In 2003 and 2007, he published a monograph in two large volumes bringing together all of its production the eighties. He also made many artist books duet with Italian poets.
Arcangelo is an artist from the campaign (Benevento), full of strength and seditious ability to "go beyond"; Beyond the themes and conventions of the West, beyond the fixed styles of a figurative self-centered and repetitive culture.
