Giuseppe Modica was born in Mazara del Vallo in 1953. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, and now lives in Rome, where he is full professor of Painting at the Academy of Fine Arts. A “solo traveler” who does not easily assimilate with other group tendencies, he is a “metaphysically new” originator who combines tradition with innovation. Modica has been appreciated by art historians and critics such as M. Fagiolo, V. Sgarbi, G. Giuf-
frè, and C. Strinati, and by great writers like L. Sciascia and A. Tabucchi. Modica has exhibited his works at prestigious solo exhibitions in Milan, Rome, Paris, Cologne, Bologna, Florence and Palermo, as well as at organisations, institutions and museums: Aosta, Tour Fromage; Ferrara, Palazzo dei Diamanti; Treviso, Casa dei Carraresi; Roma, Complesso del Vittoriano; Arezzo, Galleria Civica; Palermo, Loggiato di San Bartolomeo; Marsala, Galleria Civica; Roma, Palazzo Venezia. His works have also been on show at international art festivals such as: VIII International Cairo Biennale; XIII Rome Quadriennale; VI Biennial of Engraving, Milan; Novecento Siciliano, Minsk, Moscow, Barcellona and Palermo; Milano Arte Italiana 1968-2007, Palazzo Reale; 54th Venice Biennale, Arsenal, Italian
