BREVE BIO

Emanuele Giuffrida (Gela, 1982) vive e lavora a Palermo. Studia Arti Visive all’Accademia di Belle Arti di Palermo conseguendo la laurea specialistica in pittura nel 2007. La sua arte si sviluppa attraverso la pittura che, al servizio dell’immagine e del suo impatto estetico e comunicativo, riesce ad abbracciare sia i valori della figurazione tradizionale che i linguaggi di oggi, ottenendo così un proprio codice espressivo. La sua ricerca fiorisce con cicli di lavori riconducibili a un presente carico di memorie proprie e di esperienze intime, un racconto di sé, della propria visione dei luoghi e delle cose. Sviluppo della sua pratica pittorica è l’insistente indagine del proprio background che si traduce in costante sperimentazione. Il suo lavoro è stato esposto in diverse mostre collettive in Italia e all’estero. Nel 2019 è stato tra i finalisti dell’ottava edizione della Fondazione VAF premio, ottenendo la menzione speciale dai membri della giuria.
