Agostino Veroni Artist Bio:
Agostino Veroni was born in Livorno, as a child he shows interest in drawing and colors. At sixteen, by chance, during a dinner at the home of his paternal grandfather he meets the painting master Ferruccio Mataresi. The meeting marks the first decisive step in his career. He begins shortly thereafter, and in effect, continues for years to study with Mataresi with whom he studied classical design. Veroni though does not stop at design itself; he discovers more and more importance in his desire for color, and the physical medium on the canvas. The master Giulio da Vicchio encourages him to follow his instincts as a colourist. With the master Masaniello Luschi he explores this concept starting to paint from real life; he researches the coastal areas, the surrounding countryside. After this comes the turning point; Veroni combines first mentally, then on the canvas, the design, the color caught en plein air. The drawing takes a secondary place behind the chromatic sense given by the combination of colors and the bold energetic brushstroke. In certain paintings it is possible to see an evolution towards the abstract especially in some sea storms where the drawn figure is absorbed by the contrast of colors and the combination of light and shades that favor the pathos. In 2010 he joined the Group Labronico, the historic group founded in 1920 by important painters in order to enhance the art of Livorno. He has had numerous personal exhibitions both in Italy and abroad and has also participated in several National and International art fairs. His works can be found in private collections in Italy, and abroad.
