Interests and Personality

Biographywww.smorfia-arte.com The painter and printmaker Biagio Mastroianni was born in Luzern in 1969. After his education as a photolithographer and gaining a degree as an illustrator at the Höhere Fachschule für Gestaltung und Kunst Luzern he is now living and working in London as a freelance artist and illustrator. Biagio has especially constructed a rich and fascinating narrative, exploring the mystical subtleties of the numerological systems of the Smorfia (In Naples people who are about to buy lottery tickets ask dream interpreters to convert all their experiences during the day and their dreams during the night into numbers) and juxtaxposing these into the stark, and harsh realities of London urban life. Biagio Mastroianni is a freelance painter, printmaker and illustrator, living in Lucerne, (Switzerland) and London.
