Since 2014 his art has been for the first time shown to Russian audience through a large tour from one city to another around the whole country (Nizhny Novgorod, Dzerjinsk, Yaroslavl, Saransk, Perm, Sarov, Kirov, Rostov-na-Donu, Cheboksary, Moscow).

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Matteo Boato was born in 1971 and at present lives and works in the city of Trento, Italy.

He has been painting since 2001 but he didn’t study art as profession. He graduated Trento Academy of Music of Trento (classical guitar) and worked there for the next 10 years.

The author himself is used to say that art of painting and art of music make a perfect combination and merge. So working at a painting is like creating a song and playing a guitar is very alike to making a painting.

At the age of 26 Boato gets his master degree at the University of Trento in civil engineering and a Professional Diploma in the field of Bioecological Architecture (HSA Association, Turin).

Later on this period embodies itself in Boato’s art style. An attentive spectator can easily notice rhythm, harmony and a very specific architectural compactness in the artworks. Matteo Boato invented a unique art line including but not limited to adventurous usage of perspective and the texture of brushstrokes.

Boato’s paintings belong to museums and private collections and frequently exposed in galleries around Europe (in Italy, Belgium, Portugal, Germany, UK, France, Ireland, Spain etc.), Asia, the United States.

In the year 2011 a similar author’s project was honoured by the Institute of Italian Culture in Brussels. Same year Boato took part in Venetian Biennale at the very heart of Italian pavilion under the conduct of director Vittorio Sgarbi.

From the year 2014 the author is exposed in Russia.

Matteo Boato’s art is worth to fit both a designed interior and a museum collection and so gets more and more fans fast. Every can find something personal in it.

Enjoy the review!

FROM THE AUTHOR

 

Painting for me is like keeping a diary, a constant retelling of my life. I paint things that appeal to me, that capture my imagination as I fly above the world in my vessel, I paint the things I love, as though I were writing my autobiography. Painting allows me to pursue dreams, to give life to the people and places I would like to touch, interact with.

Houses and squares, the foundation for social communication, evoke an atmosphere that is intimate and yet at the same time open to dialogue and contact with the outside world. These form the conceptual essence of a large number works set in various towns and cities, including Venice, Siena, Trento, Verona, Milan, Piza, Mantua, Florence and Nizhny Novgorod.

The sequences of paintings depict historic urban centres in order to discover the soul of each town or city through close study of the houses, façades, doors and windows. These buildings, impregnated with human moods, have preserved within the very fabric of their materials the stories and actions of the people who once lived there. They hark back to our roots, to an extremely fragile world that is in constant danger of disappearing.

Another series of canvasses is set away from the towns focusing instead on the open countryside, rural landscapes, isolated farmhouses.

There is the presence-absence of people in the various canvasses of this series. It is partly due to the fact that human stories are told exclusively through the use of colour, and partly due to the hope that in future man will truly deserve a place on this earth and will create a world which is happier, more hardworking, honest, clean, respectful and colourful.

 

I started painting as a child, and I am still a child in this respect. At the time, painting was, thanks to its technical simplicity, a good way of bringing to life solitary afternoons and long summers in the mountains. I still consider it the ideal form of expression for someone like me, because it takes shape in the here and now, emerging directly from within me, coming straight from the gut without any technical mediation which might filter or even condition the creative process.

The «beauty» of painting lies in its power of communication, and I see a close connection between paintings and the universal nature of the message concealed behind the composition and the background colour. This is why, when I stand before a completed work that I consider emotionally positive, it gives me the feeling of déjà vu.

For the observer, the canvas is a point of view, a window onto the world lying behind things and people. For me, the painter, it is a place in my mind; in fact it is my mind, my sky.
