Simone Giaiacopi pescia, Italy

Artist Simone Giaiacopi paints rich, detailed still lifes and landscapes inspired by his home in Italy. "While my paintings can look almost photographic at first sight, a closer observation reveals the density of texture, layers, and the myriad of brushstrokes," says Simone. "I paint my subjects with a very small brush and small, precise strokes in order to enhance all the details, almost as if the piece was made of individually painted pixels." Simone was born in Viareggio, Tuscany and enjoyed drawing as a child. In school, he followed a different path, earning a PHD in Industrial Chemistry and later worked as a chemist at the University of Pisa. In 2007, Simone visited a photorealist painting exhibition in Milan that deeply impacted him. For the first time, he picked up oil paints and began teaching himself to paint. Over the next few years, he developed his own precise style. Today, he paints in a small, clean studio space located in a medieval building with a view of a typical Tuscan back alley. When he's not creating art, Simone works part-time as a hairdresser and loves reading and watching movies. His paintings are held in private and public collections, including the Fondazione Civica dei Musei di Venezia.

    Artist Statement

    My interest in painting derives, to some extent, from my love for sciences (I have a
    PHD in Industrial Chemistry). For me, painting means both studying an object and reflecting on my way of observing it. Therefore, I tend to isolate my subjects in space, focusing on
    them. However, I am always interested in living objects, or those that have traces of life.
    This is why I dedicate myself to still life, choosing both fruits and vegetables, and worn
    technological objects; or to abandoned buildings, in a series that studies my territory and its landscapes both from a personal and a psychological point of view and an objective
    rational one.
