Ivan is a concert musician, composer but above all a visual artist. He was born in Cagliari in 1976 and graduated in civil engineering.
First the music career had the priority but thanks to a lovely coincidence his artistic path took a different shape...
During a concert in Germany, at the end of 2014, a wall painting was commissioned to him. From this moment on he became known and he received several official requests for the production of other murals. The spread of images through social media brought the first requests for participation in group exhibitions. Among his most famous exhibitions: THE ESSENTIAL IS “VISIBLE” TO THE EYES, Caserta, 20 September - 4 October 2015, exhibition at the Royal Palace of Caserta, MILAN ART WEEK - “Ode to food”, Milan, 2-9 July - 2015, Group exhibition at the Pisacane Gallery and many others in Italy and abroad.
Pili is committed to figurative art and devoted to oil painting.
Art for Ivan Pili is like a religion: his works, which follow the tradition of Realism, require a long preparation; his production is full of details.
This media refining and his incessant research, at the beginning of 2016, brought him to develop his own perfect hyperrealism: not photo, but going beyond “the photograph”.
Pili’s subjects embrace figurative philosophy. Each one has a different story to tell and has a unique light scene which Pili alters to his liking and with a disarming ease.
The numerous requests for participation in events and the ever-growing works commissioned would lead Ivan Pili to reverse his artistic skills, leaving music to devote himself to full time painting. Figurative art is still at the core of his production, which takes its perfection with both black and white figures and coloured ones!
