Serafino Maiorano (1957) was born in Crotone. After his studies, he moved to Rome, where he currently lives and works. One of the first representatives of digital art, he focuses on the social and urban reality around him, witnessing everyday life through his art. Architectural elements, monuments, squares become the protagonists of a view whose light trajectories reveal the disorientation of contemporary man.
Starting from photography, the artist overlaps different locations through digital elaboration and pictorial interventions with fluid brush strokes, putting the emphasis on the dividing line between artificial world and natural universe..
Maiorano has accomplished several solo and group exhibitions both in Italy and abroad.Among the latest, we can mention the participation at the 54th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia. His personal “Spazi eterei” in 2011 at the Ellebi Art Gallery of Cosenza, “Respiro di Luce” (Breath of Light) in 2010 at the gallery Emmeotto of Rome, in 2009 the solo exhibition at Tornabuoni Art Gallery in Milan, and a solo exhibition in the Historic Apartments of the Royal Palace of Caserta, curated by Danilo Eccher and Martina Cavallarin.
Some of his works are in the collection of the Farnesina Ministry of Foreign Affairs, in some museums and several private collections. He exhibited at the Hotel de Russie in 2007 with an exhibition entitled “Pace Velata” (Veiled Peace), in cooperation with the Traghetto Gallery of Venice
