Felice Varini was born in 1952 in Locarno, Switzerland. and currently lives in Paris.
He paints directly onto architectural and urban spaces, such as buildings, walls and streets. The paintings are characterized by a single vantage point from which the viewer can see the complete painting (usually a simple geometric shape such as circle, square, line), while various ‘broken’ fragmented shapes are seen from various other view points. Varini contends that the work exists as a whole - the complete shape as well as the fragments. “My concern,” he says “is what happens outside the vantage point of view.”
