Massimo Lagrotteria was born in Lucerne (Switzerland) in 1972.
He works and lives in Carpi (MO). His main focus has always been the study of the human figure.
In 2007, he starts collaborating with the De’ Bonis gallery of Reggio Emilia, and after some collective exhibitions in various art fairs he makes his debut in Padua with his first solo exhibition.
It is a time of great experimentation, the bases used change, the canvas is given a material touch through a collage of paper and paperboard. Iron, copper and wood are also used as bases, faces and bodies are mostly alone, in a physical and psychological isolation.
