Antonio Fiorentino (b. 1987, Barletta). Lives and works in Milan, Italy. After his studies, he moved to Carrara, where he attended the Academy of Fine Arts.

In 2007 Fiorentino won a scholarship that allowed him to attend the Anotati Skoli Kalon Tecknon in Athens for a year. He then moved to Amsterdam and London.

Antonio Fiorentino’s research developed over the years under the umbrella of minimal intervention. The artist seeks to bring art back to nature by finding value in things that already exist, isolating them, and framing them within new contexts. Fiorentino is interested in situations of transformation as well as natural processes that create new forms through change. He has received awards for emerging artist, among which the Talent Prize, Rome (2015) and invited to participate in different exhibitions in Italy and abroad, among which: The Lasting, La Galleria Nazionale, Rome (2016); Ride the Falling Flux, HIAP Gallery Augusta, Helsinki (2014); From&To, Centre of Contemporary Art Villa Arson, Nice (2014) Concrete Ghost, American Academy in Rome (2014); CSAV, Fondazione Antonio Ratti, Como (2013); Underneath the Street, the Beach, Fondazione Sandretto Re Rebaudengo, Turin (2012).
