Eugenio Galli was born in 1951 in Seregno, in the province of Monza and Brianza. He still works there but now lives in the nearby town of Briosco. Ever since he was a teenager, he has harboured a passion for painting.
After studying science at high school in Monza, he spent the next 20 years or so working in his family’s goldsmith’s store and became an expert in gemmology. During this time he would also visit the studio of Gianni Arde. With him, Galli began an intense period of training and collaboration, through which he obtained his own personal interpretation of colour and scenery.
After leaving his interest in figurative art behind, at the beginning of the 1990s he pondered the issue of light, establishing a creative space highlighted by soft, delicate use of colour. And so his abstract cycles of work began, under the names substance and spirit, universal perceptions and chromatic iridescence. More recently, his output has embraced a philosophical quest for spiritual universality, under the name “The transcendence of Eugenio Galli”. Included within this new pictorial and sculptural approach are his elegy to white, his multi-material works and his sculptures made from various materials, especially COR-TEN steel.
Eugenio Galli has taken part in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Italy and abroad between Florence, Rome, Milan, Lugano, Lyon, Berlin, Budapest, Sharjah (United Arab Emirates) and Cairo.
His works can be found in private and public collections in Italy and across the globe.
