Biography

Mattia Cicoli

Mattia Cicoli’s artistic expression was encouraged and nurtured through the attainment of a Degree in Fine Arts at the Victorian College of the Arts. Cicoli was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in his late teens. This life changing moment allowed Cicoli to understand the misfortunes of the daily struggles of all people. Cicoli’s works of art therefore reflect the ambiguous, abstract forms of humanly figures and colours that connect to nature and its relationship with our existence. The forms within the works allude to a prehistoric existence to depict a simple way of life with the minimal distinction of human diversity. The colourful nature of Cicoli’s work aims to encourage people to see life through a playful, inviting perspective: to taste the joyfulness of our everyday lives despite the drawbacks that exist within it, for all of us. Cicoli has exhibited in various galleries in Melbourne, having been interviewed on SBS radio and appeared on international TV regarding his artworks. He has offered his works at various fundraising Charity events. Volunteering at Arts Project Australia, Cicoli assists artists with a disability in their artistic pursuits.
