Artist’s Bio: Massimo Murgia
‘Sometimes I Tell Myself A Story’
In this new Collection of works titled ‘Sometimes I Tell Myself A Story’, Massimo Murgia’s imagined landscapes reveal playful, dreamlike subject matter that bring to life stories from his yearning to travel the world from a very young age.
Born in Italy, Murgia’s early years working with the United Nations in Africa imbued a love of vivid colours and symbolism; later, whilst building a successful multinational business following his resettlement in Australia, Murgia began creating art pieces under a nom de plume, reluctant at the time, to reveal the true authorship of his highly personal visual stories.
Today, Massimo Murgia is completely at peace with depicting on canvas his emotional responses to the many happenings in the world at large.
“My work always felt like showing people my own private diary. It is born from pure emotion or a fantasy in my mind, and was never really meant to be shared with others,” he said.
Murgia’s highly personal paintings are full of colour, the play of light and dark shades reflecting the complexity of our humanity. “Seeing myself as free, like a bird, to fly in search of new realities…that’s how I think of painting,” smiled Murgia.
In the woods, in the river beds, in every imagined landscape he brings to life on canvas, Murgia often acknowledges the birds, the butterflies, the solitary man able to fly like Peter Pan, crossing countries and continents in search of meaning, revealing much more than meets the eye.
Massimo Murgia’s paintings are held in private collections all around Europe, but this current Exhibition is a new chapter, as he shares his fantastical landscapes for the first time in Australia.
