When he talks about his painting, Tofanelli states that he wants to investigate the relationship between time and memory, and to do this he has chosen landscape, his favorite subject. Landscape, to him, is as a privileged point of observation from where to contemplate the flow of time as well as to treasure memories of places, people and experiences he would never want to forget.
Alessandro Tofanelli was born in Viareggio in 1959. In 1977 he graduated from the Arts’ Institute in Lucca. In the same year he moved to Milan, where he attended the Brera Art Academy. Whilst he was in Milan Tofanelli collaborated as an illustrator for several magazines published by Rizzoli and Mondadori.
In 1975 he won First Prize for his work about “La Resistenza”, which is exhibited at the Modern Art Gallery in Lucca, and Firts Prize in the International competition “Ina Touring” in Palazzo Strozzi in Florence. In 1984 Tofanelli went on to win the much coveted “Giotto d’Oro” prize and in 1987 he won the “Best painter Under 35 Years of Age” prize. Tofanelli’s paintings are in several prestigious public and private collections.
Alessandro Tofanelli has always combined the painting with his work as a professional photographer, a video documentarist and a film maker.
