Biography

I am Mattia Paoli and I am an artist from Florence, Italy. I live in a little city called Bagno a Ripoli and I work in the artistic field from many years. Painting is an essential part of my life since I was a child. I am a creative: I’ve tested various techniques and I never stop researching and having practice. I often take part to artistic contests and exhibitions. Furthermore I am an active member of “Amici di Gadarte” Association, an important Art Gallery settled in Florence.
