Enzo Fiore was born in 1969, in Milan, Italy. He received his diploma in painting from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera under the guidance of Luciano Fabro, a firm believer in Poor Art (Arte Povera). During the following years, Enzo dedicated his talents to restoration of antique paintings as well as designing theatrical settings.


Fiore is a painter who can claim a certain patience and particularity for manual skills made of resin, earth, leaves, entwined roots affirmed in frontal paintings and significantly placed by means of relief, wrinkles, layers, forced and diffused elasticity, all positioned by the sculptor with absolute immobility. Shades and tones reappear creating shadows and luminosity. In his paintings, Fiore shows the paradox of a complex and expressive construction in heterogeneous matter on one hand and on the other, of noted iconographies – the faces of famous figures – that seem blank, purposely rendered insignificant and devoid of their importance. He affirms aggressive originality in his choice of material used which once again becomes normal, banal and ordinary matter as the final image is attained.
