"Maurizio Sapia is a visionary, his wild imagination always fascinates me and his visual storytelling in his photography collections always leaves my collectors wanting more. I am proud to represent him and introduce his art to the world."

Guy Hector, The Art House Global

Maurizio Sapia was born in Sanremo in 1966. After finishing school and at the end of his career as a cyclist, he moved to Milan at the age of 21. Here, fascinated by the great creativity in the world of fashion, he followed photography courses at the IED (European Design Institute). He started to work first as an assistant and then as a photographer at a professional studio in Milan, specializing in still life photography.

 

After several years, in 2001, he founded Studio h2o with 3 partners, where he still works today, collaborating with various fashion magazines and advertising agencies. He is also part of a group of directors, IT technicians and, video makers formed to develop 3D video recording techniques. In the last fifteen years, through the photographic medium, he has sought his own personal mode of expression, free from rules of commercial photography: at first through the traditional photograph and successively with computers, he has explored territories bordering between photography and painting, resulting in a very personal style. His experience in the fields of digital environments then extended his interest to interactive installations.

 

In recent years he has almost entirely devoted himself to his artistic research by collaborating with the DieMauer contemporary Art Gallery in Prato, Italy. And recently with Galerie STP in Greifswald, Germany and, Guy Hector's Art House Global in Los Angeles, USA.
He lives and works in Milan.
