Biagio Battaglia was born in Comiso (RG) and has lived in Milan since 1961.
He concluded his studies at the Istituto Statale d'Arte of Comiso, sculpture section.
After a brief activity in artisan sculpture workshops, he carried out his activity in the field of building design as a technical draftsman in architectural studios, first in his hometown and continuing in Milan.
Here he went through all the stages of his career in the specific field until he founded his own studio " TEAM PROGETTO architecture and development ", through which he carried out technical consultancy of Design and Works Management for leading companies in Italy and abroad. This activity allows him to experience that synthesis between art and technical rigor which will allow him to reconcile the aspect between utopia and the observation of the world around him.
The passion and interest in art, which began at a very young age, is never abandoned, today he is entirely dedicated to painting to find his own personal style and to get to know and experiment with new forms and languages expressed by the contemporary world.
Paraphrasing Kant: It can be said that between pleasant beauty and goodness, only and exclusively that for the taste of beauty is a disinterested and free complacency because there is no interest, neither that of the senses nor that of reason, which compels approval.
Biagio Battaglia, in his personal way of being there, searches for an ideal composition between the "beauty" and what his sensitivity perceives from everyday life. His painting is not abstracted from contemporary society and upcoming events which are interpreted with one's own personality and without references to predefined styles.
Behind a current theme, strength and willingness to express what is necessary to defend the cause of individual stylistic conception shines through in Battaglia's painting.
In his work there is a deep and filtered relationship with reality, which however is not reduced to the simple recovery of the truth.
Battaglia translates the compositional elements into a coordinated formal register, made up of compositional spaces that enclose the figurative suggestions gathered in contact with reality in the harmonious dimension of the form.
In his painting emerges a clean harmony of an imaginative reinvention translated into the precise scanning of the spaces and the delicate juxtaposition of the chromatic ranges. These are results that come from a long and assiduous meditation on a discourse that is never an arabesque or decoration but a meaningful communication of a human testimony.
The chromatic composition and the narrative allegory are the hallmark of his way of working.
