biography.

GIAN DOMENICO SOZZI was born in Castello di Solaro (BS) in 1960. He studied at DAMS in Bologna, and then moved to Florence, where he started painting in Luciano Bartolini’s studio. In Florence he had his first solo show, at Galleria Schema in 1985. He then moved to Berlin and New York, where he based his studio for several years, and where his series, Mar d’Africa, was conceived. Mar d’Africa was shown at Galerie Montenay in Paris and at Galerie Thomas in Munich. He came back to Italy in 1992, settling in Milan, and in the same year he presented at STUDIO STEFANIA MISCETTI the serie r-Idolini, sculptures and photographies witnessing procedures done on well-known and unknown heads. An year later, r-Idolini was shown at Studio Casoli in Milan.

In 1996-7 he realizes cielospettacolo, work featuring the artist himself as a bride of twelwe célibataires. cielospettacolo was exhibited in Rome, at Studio Miscetti, in Paris at Montenay and in Milan at A&MBookstore. In 1998, he was included in Subway, curated by Roberto Pinto, with the work Settebagnimaria, in which we see him in other people’s shoes.

In 2000, again at STUDIO STEFANIA MISCETTI, he showed his latest painting cycle,
Madonne, a series of partially overlapping monochrome painted papers, hung on the back of a wall/iconostasis built for this purpose in the Gallery. In 2002 being asked to make a project for Driade, he realized MOI, a word in gold leaf crossing the twelwe plates of The White Snow, coinceived to be shared among the tablemates. In the same year he showed prendo tempo, at Studio De Carlo in Milan. In 2006 the find footage video Brava was projected for the first time at Galleria Zero, then presented in Berlin at Galerie Isabella Bortolozzi, at Museo Fesch in Aiaccio and at Galleria Civica Montevergini in Siracusa. In 2008 he was protagonist of so it goes at Studio Miscetti and in 2009 he created Red Carpet, site specific installation for Francesco Pantaleone in Palermo. In 2012, invited at Mars in Milan as a special guest, presented Bella Ciao, and in 2017 he had his first solo show at Studio Dabbeni, in Lugano, named Pretious.
