Gianni Cella was born in Pavia on March 4th, 1953, graduated from the Brera Art High School, then he entered at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and graduated in painting with Prof. Manfredi. He has a long and very rich research behind him, which carries on the language of drawing, painting and sculpture. He exhibited for the first time in January 1982 at the Diagramma Gallery of Luciano Inga-Pin with the Plumcake collective, from which he separated in January 2000 to embark on a personal artistic journey.
The artist defines himself as a visionary of life, prolific, polymorphic and kaleidoscopic who lives in perennial adolescent isolation.
His works create a climate of bittersweet irony: his images are endowed with a sensitive empathy, in which stereotypes of popular figurativeness, dramatic elements and abstract structures of our age are transfigured.
