Born in Livorno, Italy, on October 30th, 1986.
Matteo Verre is a visual artist who works with photography. After graduating from a scientific high school specialized in mathematics and computer science, he decided to follow his true passion and study History of Contemporary Art at Pisa University. It was at that time that he started exploring the photographic media. The need to express himself grew from the inside. Being a passionate of surrealism, it was only natural that Matteo Verre start with experimenting photo-manipulation, under the influences of masters like De Chirico and Dalì. Then over time Matteo’s practice expanded in different directions. He was especially marked by artists such as Robert Mapplethorpe and Ulay, whose research on the human figure had a great impact on him, both on the aesthetical and philosophical level, alongside his interest in quantum physics and cultural anthropology, which shaped his point of view on the different perspectives we can take to look at the human condition. He then began to interconnect his main concerns to create his own poetic, focusing on themes like identity and memory, which now form the core of his artistic research. His commitment to art drives him to constantly study and improve his technical skills as well as dig deeper into his artistic language aiming to translate his thoughts, feelings and emotion into images.
