Roberto Ferri Curriculum

In 1996, Taranto graduated from Taranto's "Lisippo" fine arts high school, and began studying painting independently; after moving to Rome in 1999, he was able to begin studying historic paintings in depth, concentrating on works from the early 16th to the late 19th centuries. Ferri was particularly drawn to the works of Caravaggio and the Academy (including Anne-Louis Girodet, Jacques-Louis David, Jean-Louis Theodore Gericault, Jean Auguste Dominique Ingres, William-Adolf Bouguereau, and Charles Gleyre).

Ferri graduated with Honors from Rome's Academy of Fine Arts in Stage Design in 2006, and has collaborated with the Square Gallery, the Fine Art department of Liquid Art System, since 2009. His work is deeply inspired by Caravaggio and other Baroque painters, and Old Masters of Romanticism, Academism, and Symbolism (including David, Moreau, Redon, Ingres, Girodet, Gleyre, Bouguereau, Gericault, Rops, and others).

His works equal the most skilled figurative painters in the duplication of reality, and depicts a world in which the eye of the artist records and reproduces the order of things in a world where everything works, but there is also the space for evil. Ferri introduces dreams into reality, and the harmonic composition dominates though his subjects often strike twisted poses, with their figures both exactingly human yet triumphant and heroic.

Ferri's works are included in many important private collections in Rome, Milan, London, Dublin, Paris, the Castle of Menerbes (Provence), Madrid, Barcelona, Malta, New York, Boston, Miami, and San Antonio. His paintings were also featured in the film "Sangue nel Mio Sangue" directed by Marco Bellocchio and presented at the 2nd Venice Film Festival:
