Versione italiana

     

Born in Capriglia Irpina, but of Ravenna by virtue of his love of mosaics, Felice Nittolo is one of the main contemporary mosaic artists.
In the course of his artistic development over more than thirty years Nittolo has caught national and international attention with a series of ideas which, if not breaking away completely, are highly provocative such as Arrhythmia (1984) and the manifesto of the New Tradition (1992).

Nittolo, although defending the independence of the mosaic language has intuitively understood the correspondence between mosaics and theatre, mosaics and music, mosaics and poetry.

The many personal exhibitions and shows include the international art fairs of Arco Madrid, Artefiera Bologna, Expo Arte Bari, Artexpo New York, Art 14 Basle, Fiac Paris in addition to the following
