Fernando Alfonso Mangone

Fernando Alfonso Mangone was born in Altavilla Silentina (Salerno) in 1958. In 1976, he moved to Catanzaro to pursue studies at the Academy of Fine Arts, where he attended the painting course taught by Prof. Gianni Pisani. He continued his studies from 1977 and completed them in 1980 at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, following the painting course led by Prof. Gustavo Giulietti. Alfonso Mangone expresses a world full of signs, places, and people, narrating color and drawing inspiration from historical models of European expressionism. His techniques are mixed with a preference for acrylic. Mangone’s artistic research began in these years, allowing the then twenty-year-old artist to continue his studies and establish relationships with numerous intellectual artists and art critics. The most fruitful years brought him into contact with various foreign artists such as Kcrista Von Baum and Felicitas Pallat. During the same period, he began an intense exhibition activity in galleries and public spaces in Italy. His numerous travels during these years led him to frequent the artistic and intellectual circles of Berlin. In 1990, he moved to the Netherlands, participating in several exhibitions in major Dutch cities. He held a series of exhibitions at the Italian Cultural Institute in Amsterdam, presented by Aldo Braibanti and Barbara Tosi. In addition to his paintings, in the Netherlands, he created murals in public spaces such as subways, theaters, discos, and parks; murals commissioned by “Stad-Kunst,” “Greenpeace,” “Amnesty International,” as well as performances with rock bands and installations of materials. Subsequently, he established a working relationship with the Heineken Italy group, creating a limited series of glasses for Stella Artois and a collection of oils and acrylics on canvas, featured in “Heineken green stage” venues throughout Italy. His participation in the editing of the book recounting the history of Alfa Romeo was significant. For this publication, he designed the cover and back cover. It was an encounter between his art and the valuable world automotive industry.
