Michele Fabbricatore

Born in Florence in 1972, he lives and works in Pistoia, a small and ancient Tuscan city.
Since childhood he has been passionate about drawing and sculpture.
He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence in sculpture and subsequently attended courses in engraving and graphics at the international school “Il Bisonte” and the Armadillo Atelier in Florence.
He also attended several workshops of the International School for Childhood Illustration in Sarmede (TV).
He exhibits in exhibitions and galleries in Italy and abroad.

In my work I express the things I love most, literature, mythology, the fairy tale and admiration for nature.
I think of art as a means of transmitting a poetic and dreamy world with a touch of irony.
My aim is to narrate positive values that can stimulate the search for the “best part of us”.
