EMANUELE TOZZOLI works like a samurai: fast, highly concentrated, equipped with the weapons of an artist: brushes, spray cans, crayons, varnishes and much more. In this way he captures the essence of a personality, an encounter, a sensation.
To get the innumerable facets of the human soul, its abysses and flights of fancy, angelic, animal, seductive, terrifying and endearing at the same time is his mission.
Since 2022 he also works three-dimensionally. His sculptures are a conglomerate of discarded (plastic) everyday utensils and toys.
Like his paintings, they testify to concentrated creativity, humor, the desire for exaggeration and at the same time a sense of an overriding harmony.
Tozzoli makes no effort at all to hide the fact that he worships Picasso and Basquiat, and that the many sacred images of his native Italy and the comic and game aesthetics of our time are reflected in his work.
EMANUELE TOZZOLI lives and works in the countryside of Torino, Italy. Since his father is also a painter, his training as an artist began in childhood. From his grandfather he learned to restore antique woods and from a well-known Turin master how to restore murals.
He completed a training as a sound engineer, but afterwards he decided to work in the world of colors.
2018, in the age of 29, he signed a contract with Saphira and Ventura Gallery, New York City, N.Y. which boasts works by masters such as Keith Haring, Jackson Pollock, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol, Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera and Alberto Giacometti. And in the same year he also signed a contract with the historic Galleria Accorsi, Venice,Torino, Italy, which boasts works of museum excellence by Eduard Manet, Lucio Fontana, Marc Chagall, Keith Haring and Piet Mondrian.
Since then various solo and group exhibitions have taken him to all continents.
