Contemporary artist.

BIO

FIDIA  FALASCHETTI  is an Italian artist, born in 1977 in Marche Italy

FIDIA’S  journey into art began in his early childhood , raised in a hugely  inspiring and creative family. At the age of 16, FIDIA was hired to produce wall paintings and illustrations for multiple stores and established companies. He grew up inspired by different subcultures, and then formed his creative skills from  street art and the hip hop world. He studied “Production Design” at the Academy of Fine Arts, between Macerata and Florence in Italy, where he graduated in 2002  having already  embarked on  his professional career as a  graphic designer, illustrator and photographer since 1995 he also collaborated with many international brands.

After a 2 month trip to The United States, in 2007 FIDIA decided to overturn his career, leaving the design industry and moving into Contemporary Art, which he found to be the ideal way to express and portray his feelings. The artist felt the need to start  talking  about the dark side of the world, trying to bring it to a more creative level. He realized that the best way to have a better world was to create positive art for the world which he  produces  through his illustrations and installations . In the same period, FIDIA  started his experience as an Art and Communications teacher which has been an amazing experience to gain knowledge about what the new generation needs.

Over a few very successful years FIDIA  exhibited his work in museums, art fairs and galleries in  India, France,  The United States, Brazil, Indonesia, Switzerland,  The UK and of course Italy , highlighted by international awards, newspaper and  many magazine  publications. He also spent long  periods traveling outside  of  Italy, to become inspired by the amazing things which the world has to offer .

Fidia Falaschetti is currently represented by Fabien Castanier Gallery in Los Angeles and Bogotá, Fifty 24 MX Gallery in Mexico City, among is present in other galleries worldwide.
