Alberto Di Fabio Bibliography (27 Kb)
Alberto Di Fabio was born in Avezzano in 1966, and studied at the Academia delle Belle Arti, Rome. Di Fabio's paintings and works on paper merge the worlds of art and science, depicting natural forms and biological structures in vivid colour and imaginative detail. Throughout his abstract images, the artist has developed and expanded his interest in the natural world, with early works dealing with the structures of flora and fauna, as well as eco and astral systems. Di Fabio's more recent paintings have focused on genetics and DNA, the synaptic receptors of the brain, moving his work into the realm of pharmaceutical and medical research.
Di Fabio has exhibited internationally, including the Beijing International Art Biennale (2005), Insomnia, Galleria Pack, Milan (2007) and Umberto Di Marino Arte Contemporanea, Napoli, Italy (2007). The artist lives and works in Rome.
In 2010, at the 61st Fondazione Michetti edition of the "Dante Ruffini anda Maddalena Rettirosso" Prize, founded by the astrophysicist Professor Remo Ruffini, the prize was assigned by the jury to Alberto di Fabio for his acrylic work on canvas titled "Sinapsi e galassie" (2008).
