Umberto Bergamaschi

Umberto Bergamaschi was born in Milan in 1954.
He has been attending the painting atelier Adriano e Michele since 1996. The habit of putting a circle round his subjects arose by chance during the exploratory phase when he was absorbed in copying a coin.
Bergamaschi got a great satisfaction from it and he has never given up the circular shape. Each thing is presented inside a circle, elegant and stylized figures without depth which are so frail to acquire the atemporal essentiality of a pure effigy, in a fetal universe where time and space are banished.
The opting to abstract and emarginate the elements from reality reflects his tendency to take refuge in a silent and protected universe.
He is present in some private and public collections in Europe.
