1968 Born in Florence, (IT)
The son of painter Francesco Inverni, thanks to his father, he developed an innate passion for painting which was a self-taught art.
He attended the I.T.I.S. in Prato and graduated in 1988. Inverni moved to Rome where he worked as a textile designer. But in 1991, the year his father passed away, he decided to try his hand at painting.
He met Tommaso Giotti, an influential figure on the international art scene, in 1994. In turn Giotti introduced him to the American artist Benini. The latter was, and still is, very important for Inverni since, in America, it was Benini who helped him takes part and organize exhibitions in various American states.
Various cities in Italy have housed his exhibitions, and his work was on show in important public and private collections.
Inverni's hand is meticulous and very precise, even when it comes to minute objective detailing.
His work delves into memories: an old and aged sheet of paper is synonymous with a still very vivid past.
The pictorial composition, despite the child like instinct of the drawings, is photorealist, and perfectly executed in terms of the shadows themselves and their projections.
