Born in 1955 - Switzerland
Gabriele Fettolini is a Swiss painter born in 1955.
He started painting when he was 15 years old and eventually joined an Art School after high school, at the age of 20.
In 1986, he moved to Catalonia and decided to devote himself solely to painting. Many artists have influenced his work, Some of them he discovered as a youngster such as Klee, Matisse and Picasso while others he meet while he was studying such as Bacon, Tapiès and a group of abstract expressionists. More recently, he has discovered Sicilian artists such as Juan Uslé, among many others.
Gabriele Fettolini does not like to use the word “inspiration” when he speaks about his creative process, instead, he’d rather talk about a certain “discomfort” which generates ideas, feelings, sensations and concepts which he uses to create his paintings. Moreover, the artist is convinced that his art is a big part of his identity, that every single one of his experiences can be use to enrich his work.
Gabriele made his first exhibition in 1992. Ever since, his work has regularly been exposed at various exhibitions and contemporary art fairs.
