Antonio Capoferri was born in Costa Volpino (Bergamo) in 1953.
He began his pictorial training as a self-taught continuing his studies of drawing, graphics, engraving and sculpture at the Brescian Artists' Association.
A master of the landscape, not of the classic brush landscape because he doesn't use the brush… Antonio Capoferri is a very skilled master of the spatula and he created this captivating technique.
From his studio above Lake Iseo, he can admire extraordinary and romantic views of Lake Sebino, Montisola, the small port of Iseo, Marone, the coast and various mountain peaks, and paints them, always with new lights and perspectives.
After some important trips abroad, Capoferri has also experimented with other scenarios, without changing the technique that made him famous, passing from the lake to the big cities. Then New York with the extraordinary aerial views of the various bridges that connect the two banks, San Francisco with the streets, the traffic, the skyscrapers, and the stations that symbolize the journey and the continuous movement.
An extraordinary game of intertwining streets and mammoth buildings, with color and material that stand as real protagonists.
Antonio Capoferri does not intend to narrate places or games of images of everyday life or of his own experience, but he wants to feel himself an observer and solicitor of expressive "complicity".
He is an artist researcher of “transversality”, that is, of correspondences and symmetries that unite and cross the dimensions of the geographical space. These exhibition realities offer us the perception of experiencing the environment, of recognizing the products of the environment, of feeling a reflection and part of the history of identities.
With his chromatic charges and his concentrates, he offers a fascinating spectrum of the experience of the colors of the perceived world.
He has participated in numerous group and personal exhibitions both in Italy and abroad, obtaining numerous acclaim from critics and admirers.
