ANTONIOMIUCCI

Antonio Miucci was born in 1994. He is an Italian visual artist and fashion photographer, currently living and working in Milan.
His works, influenced by art, fashion, pop culture and humanities disciplines, deal with issues as queerness and personal identity, deconstructing the representation of cultural stereotypes in order to celebrate self-expression and authenticity, self-acceptance and beauty in diversity. Profoundly inspired by the concepts of the feminine, life, and rebirth, the symbols and the archetypes, he creates romantic/pop colorful scenarios, which are always in a sort of theatrical space, halfway between mystery and reality, characterized by a sense of strength, tenderness and refined elegance, embracing a world where everything can happen. In this place, the protagonists celebrate who they want or choose to be without judgements but boundless freedom. In front of the camera, a timeless and spaceless aesthetic dimension is born, where the characters perform their own inner Self in its most various and fluid expressive forms, coming alive with a deep process of knowledge between the artist and the subject.

Raised in Puglia (Southern Italy), he has moved to Milan, where he attended Brera Academy of Fine Arts, achieving the BA in Art and New Media (2017); after, he continued the MA in Photography and Contemporary Art. Besides, he participated in a fashion photography workshop with the artist Charles Fréger at ARMANI SILOS in Milan (2019). In 2020 he has been shortlisted for the Palm*PhotoPrize, with a future exhibition (date tbc) at the Print Space Gallery in London; plus, he took part in an online exhibition curated by Ashleigh Kane on DER GREIF, We have no need of other worlds, we need mirrors. In 2019 he has been selected by FRESH EYES, powered by GUP Magazine, as one of 100 Best Emerging Photography Talent in Europe, by an expert panel of international judges of photo editors, art gallerists and art curators, then his works have been published in the same book and exhibited at VOIES OFF, Les Rencontres d’Arles and at PhotoBasel in Switzerland. In the same year his works have been exhibited in GQ Italia: Passion for the Path of Artexhibition, curated by Ilaria Bonacossa at Cardi Gallery in Milan, and published in the GQ Italia’s october issue print magazine to celebrate its 20th anniversary. In 2013 he took part in the exhibition Condé Nast: a Century of Fashion Photography at Fondazione Forma Meravigli, curated by Nathalie Herschdorfer. Furthermore, he has participated in several exhibitions at Triennale Design Museum of Milan, Paratissima Art Fair, Galleria Ghiggini, Galleria Gloria Molino, Fondazione L’Arsenale. His works have been published and featured on ARTCONNECT Magazine, Palm*Studios, Uncoated Platform, FRESH EYES, DER GREIF, Nss Magazine, Fashion Film Festival Milano, Still Young Fotografia, INTERNI Magazine, GQ ITALIA, Rolling Stones Italia, Vogue.it, L'Uomo Vogue. During this last year he self-published his first two artist books, Non ti Scordar di Me and Arcadia.
