A lberto Di Fabio (born 1966 in Avezzano) lives and works among Rome and New York.

He is inspired by the cosmos and the elements that make up the world of nature. His painting investigates chemical reactions, mining, atoms, DNA, the neuronal system, enlarging them as under a microscope. These geometric shapes often turn and vibrate on his canvases in brilliant and pure colors, creating contrasts and harmonic scales, tonal variations and striking combinations that involve the spectator in extra-sensory kinetic visions.

Complex structures that offer us an excursion to the unremitting changes of the psyche in relation to external influences. He discovers and grasps the value of life in the universe, in the biological breath of every living element, defends them and paints them with strength and delicacy in his great abstract compositions.

"Fabio pays attention to human complexity beyond appearances. We are not just a matter. We're not just physical. We are also energy and spirituality. We are mystery. We are unanswered questions. We are like an iceberg: what we perceive through senses and reason is just the part we see on the surface, the most conspicuous thing is the one that remains covered by water"
