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

Sandro Sergi was born in Venice, Italy in 1922.  He first trained at Ercole Sibellato’s school and later studied with such masters as Cadorin, De Luigi, Saetti and Guidi.  He next worked at the Venetian Labor Institute with the architect Carlo Scarpa. His artistic career began in the 1940s; his first success was as an illustrator and later, as a painter.   

The clean and essential line of his figures, filled with expressive and introspective values have won him numerous prizes including: the 1948 first prize for drawing from the commission for the 24th Art Biennial; the 1949 first prize from the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation; the 1956 first prize in painting from the Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation; and the 1961 first prize in landscape painting at the international Giorgione-Pussin competition.

Sergi began to teach in the 1950s.  However, it was, above all, a time when he was gradually distancing himself from figurative art and moving towards Spatialism.  It was the moment of change, the beginning of what the artist himself has defined as an extra-formal itinerary.

Although still tied to the nature of the Venetian landscape, he has attempted to interpret it with a new aesthetic spatiality, thus creating works of great poetry and characterized by his original, artistic cipher.

His works in the 1960s and 1970s are dedicated to experimentation, the challenge of color, and a study of light.  It was during this period that he dedicated himself to creations in glass. The 1980s and 1990s were marked by a return to the themes of his youth: figures, portraits, still lifes, landscapes and again glass sculptures.
