Biography from Kamp Gallery, Inc.:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Athos Faccincani was born in Peschiera del Garda, Italy in 1951.  Best known for his colorful, neo-fauvist scenes of Italy he began to study painting at age 13 in the studio of Pio Semeghini.  At the same time, to please his mother, he studied accounting with the goal of becoming a banker, but in 1967 he defied his parents and ran off to Venice where he enrolled in the Academy of Fine Arts. There he apprenticed under Italian artists Marco Novati, Angelo Gamba and Fioravante Seibezzi until his graduation in 1970.

These were lean years for him as a student but important ones.  He would quickly be rewarded when in 1971 he held his first exhibition at the Historical Palace of Peschiera del Garda.   He has since successfully exhibited at numerous one man shows, including the European Parliament in Strasbourg, the Complesso del Vittoriano Monument in Rome, the Hall of Prisons in Naples, the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Tokyo and the Aragonese Castle of Taranto.  The subject of at least three published catalogues, his paintings have sold regularly throughout Italy, as well as in Paris, Zurich, Munich, London, Madrid, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles New York, Toronto and Chicago.
