About Matteo Fieno
Matteo Fieno, known as “the artist of women” is an emerging figurative painter based in Italy.
Since 2019 Fieno is plumbing the female world, transferring on paper and canvas, as an artistic impression, the strong complexity of all women. As a painter increasingly appreciated by critics and art lovers, Fieno gives voice to his vision, one in which women are an absolute protagonist. Keeper of beauty, embodiment of inner depths that need to be grasped and amaze, the woman meets in Fieno’s work empathy and identification, the most original traits of artistic inspiration steaming from the Italian artist. An interpretative ability that feeds on a remarkable imaginative capacity and that, at the same time, fixes the distinctive features of his artistic language into reality.
The way in which Fieno deals with the theme of women has been recently analyzed through a critical statement by Vittorio Sgarbi, one of the most influent italian art critic, who compared Fieno to the great artists of the past, such as Gauguin, Lautrec, Cézanne and Matisse.
His works is in many private collections in Italy and has been exhibited at The Museum Gonzaga in Mantua, Scuola Grande di San Teodoro in Venice, Palazzo Leti Sansi, Complesso di San Severo al Pendino in Naples, Brera Site in Milan, Galleria Zero1 by Fondazione De Nittis, Galleria Area Contesa Arte in Rome, Galerie Thuillier in Paris, Gallery BCM in Barcelona and at Italian art fairs, among others.
Over the year he has received several artistic awards for excellence: Premio Caravaggio and Premio Milano Art Gallery, both signed by Vittorio Sgarbi, and Biancoscuro Art Contest.
Fieno’s work has been featured in La STAMPA, one of the most important Italian daily newspaper, Biancoscuro Magazine, Art Now Magazine, BlueBee Magazine, TheNYjournal.com and Creativinn.
In November 2019, Milano Art Gallery has hosted his first solo show “Declinazioni al femminile” in which he set up 42 canvas and has written and published “The Diary of Declinazioni al femminile”, which includes the 42 histories of the woman painted on the canvas.
Actually Fieno is working on a new concept “Italia al Femminile” with the aim of show Italy through his women’s eyes.
