"With bold colors, strident collage of the sacred and profane, my pictures are made to create pure joy for the eyes. I choose, arrange, add and stratify everything (I grab them from the Net) with the objective of making us think while having fun."
Guido Corazziari was born in 1952 in Bari, Italy. The 70's were spent in Florence, where he worked as a scenic photographer for ART/TAPES, an international art-video production center, where he interacted with the world's most innovative artists of the time. In 1980 he graduated with a degree in Architecture and then in 1981 became a tenured professor at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bari. In 1983 he won an EEC scholarship to the "Domus Academy" in Milano, where he earned a Master's degree in Design. Then in 1984 he won first prize for Italy in the Lino & Moda contest and was invited to exhibit his works in Montecarlo. In 1987, thanks to another scholarship, Corazziari traveled to Paris, to attend the "Université de Marly Le Roi" where he obtained a diploma in Serigraphy. Now he’s working as an architect and multimedia artist and is exhibiting his works in many galleries and museums, in Italy and abroad.
