Sardinia – 1986
Michele Ardu is a London based Italian artist who uses photography to communicate with the World.
At the early stage of his artistic career Michele gained great experience and international recognition by working with many top brands and magazines, having his work awarded and published worldwide.
His first artistic photography research is “In Re Quieta”, a collection of images focused on the relationship between Man&Horse and the Worlds that surround this ancient romance. This work was also presented at Palace House, the National Museum of Horse Racing (Newmarket, UK), at ADNEC (Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre) and, during PhotoLondon 2018, at Italian Cultural Institute in London.
With time, Michele developed a greater interest in a more conceptual use of the photography medium, so, influenced by his BSc background in Biomedical Engineering, he started experimenting and researching his way to break the limits of human senses. This work led him to MUSICA, a collection of Sound Portraits that allows the audience to experience Music and Sound via the sight sense instead of the hearing one.
Michele had his work exhibited in Italy, UK, Russia, Taiwain and UAE, and among his collectors there are private art lovers and Middle-Est Royal families’ members.
