User Bio

Alessandro Fantini was born in Sangro Valley, Italy. His creative inclination arose during his early childhood when he began drawing comics and writing tales influenced by gothic authors like Edgar Allan Poe and Sheridan le Fanu. Disliking art school teachings, he learned oil painting techniques by himself and started painting his first canvases in 1993. During the nineties he developed his own visionary style blending the surrealist attitude with hyperrealism and Flemish painting methods. In 2002 he graduated with first class honours in modern literature with a thesis about the relationship between Italian culture and the PreRaphaelism.

Since 1998 he wrote, directed and produced movies and music videos digitally, composing also their soundtracks and writing lyrics for songs performed by himself. His short movies "Tiranti Transit" and "The road to Shakti" were broadcasted in 2006 and 2007 on European Sky Channels. He wrote and illustrated the book "The Night's Veil"(2006) and the dark-fantasy novel "Endometria"(2007) both published by Liberodiscrivere and presented at the International Turin book fair. His self-portrait was published in 2004 inside the Jean Michel Jarre's "Aero" album booklet. His artworks have been shown in several group exhibitions and solo exhibitions in Pescara, Turin, at the London Brick Lane Gallery and at the Rome Dorothy Circus Gallery.
In 2008 he releases his first art book entitled "The Sinovial Gaze" covering more than a decade of painting activity.
In 2009 he directed the music video "The Sky" for the international jazz drummer Lorenzo Tucci.
In the same year he directed and produced the supernatural thriller "NEPENTE". In 2010 he directed the sci-fi thriller feature movie "EDOnism" filmed in Tokyo and produced by Lorenzo Fantini.
In 2014 he directed and produced the mystery "New York, a venture" filmed between New Jersey and New York City.
