Andreas Senoner was born in 1982 in Bolzano, Italy. He lives and works between Santa Cristina in Val Gardena (BZ) and Florence, Italy.

He attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and the Saint Charles Fine Art Department in Valencia, Spain.

He attends performance and sound poetry classes with artist Bartolomé Ferrando.

 

In 2006, he was granted a scholarship for Minneapolis College of Art and Design (Minneapolis, USA) where he attended sculpture classes from Kinji Akagawa with whom he delved into his wood carving tecnique. From that moment wood as a material of expression has become a permanent feature in his artistic research.

If carving wood is essential to his mind, the design is also a medium hard to Andreas. Pondering Mankind in general, Andreas tackles themes sometimes abstract, sometimes concrete. Loneliness, the diversion of popular icons or the eyes of others are recurring themes.

 

Since his return to Italy in 2007, he has been invited to show his work in several important national galleries, in France, United States, Serbia and Switzerland. His work is present in the main contemporary art fairs like Arte Fiera Bologna (Italy), Scope Basel (Switzerland), Art Paris Art Fair (France).
