Sandro Chia is an Italian painter and sculptor who was a key member of the Italian Transavanguardia movement. This was a movement to revive painting and reintroduce emotion back into art. Sandro is best known for using Neo-Expressionist in his paintings and sculptures. He typically catches his subjects in movement and uses bold lines and colors in his work. His intent is to convey a sense of drama and emotion with the use of a vivid palette and energetic brushstrokes. Sandro graduated from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence and began to exhibit his work in 1971. He refers to his early works of art as "mythical conceptual art" and in the late 1970's returned to painting where he became a major artist in the movement for Italian figurative painting. His vibrant oil painting, In Strange and Gloomy Waters a White Spot Shines and A Little Girl Flies by my Side celebrate man's sensuality and animal vitality. They show the closeness between man and the natural world. There is a lot of cultural and art history reference in Sando's work. He paints with a swirling, rhythmic application in paint to express melancholy, eroticism and death in his art. Often the expressions in Sandro Chia's subjects are exaggerated to show a reference to Italy's history and culture. He has many forms of art in his expressions; mural painting, mosaic and bronze sculpture and creates a reference to Italian Futurism by connecting the past with the present. Sandro's work has been displayed worldwide; Stedelijk Museum in Amstedam, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, National galerie in Berlin and the Museo Rufino Tamayo in Mexico City. His 128 foot long painting of the Palio horse race is placed in the Palio Bar in New York City. Less
