ABRAHAM SIDNEY OFEI NKANSAH
Abraham Sidney's expressive heritage relates both to ancient medieval miniatures and to the contemporary, urgent and compulsive need for communication; each work is tackled to the point of shrinking the image, not without suffering, to its highest narrative density. The landscape is the result of the relationship between the its real figures, and the image filtered by feelings and thought. Sidney's visions witness an ideal journey between the north and south of the planet, between different continents and geographies. His sceneries unfold as pages of music where the notes chase each other, they repeat renewing the sounds, provoke emotions between sudden flashes of light and shady atmospheres.
Abraham Sidney was born in Modena in 1990. He studied at the Polytechnic of Milan and at the Academy of Fine Arts of Florence. In 2019, He graduated at Brera Fine Art Academy in Milan.
