Biography

Paolo Serra was born in Morciano di Romagna in 1946, and lives and works in Castelleale di San Clemente, Italy.

Tirelessly created by layering hundreds of materials including lacquer, gold and palladium leaf, acrylic, chalk, and rabbit-skin glue, his monochromatic and dichromatic paintings explore two-dimensional textures, essentialism and surface tensions. His inspirations are as varied as Old Master portrait artists such as Rembrandt, and Modern abstractionists such as Mondrian and Malevich. His work has been extensively exhibited in Europe, and is in the permanent collections of The Arts Council of Great Britain; The Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; The Rembrandt Society; the National Bank of the Netherlands; UBS AG and Museum der Stadt Waiblingen. He has also contributed work to the English Pavilion of the 12th São Paulo Biennial and had a monograph published by Gi Ori about his practice.
