Andrea Papi

Rome | Italy

Andrea Papi is a visual designer who was born in 1978 and lives and works in Rome. Following a Biennal Master of Photography, Papi worked in Fashion Photography and subsequently moved into artistic research. Developing in the last years, Papi’s research has become focused increasingly on the study of landscape, where he investigates interactions and complex systems of relations between nature and the human being. We find that Papi’s interest in the landscape and such a relationship in his artistic research is one that comes from the foundation of his academic background with a degree in Human Geography. Papi continues to explore representations the landscape by using natural settings to create imagined landscapes, at times placing sculptural pieces inserted into the natural space to explore the notion of a hybrid environment. Papi’s works have been exhibited in several art fairs, festivals and galleries around Europe.
