About Daniele da Modica
Daniele Iozzia was born in Modica, Italy in 1974 and lives in London.
Daniele is aware of the classical tradition of painting but his highly distinctive style also has a strongly contemporary and timeless perspective. His technique is mainly oil on linen canvas, inspired by the Old Masters he has studied. He is presently looking at different series of paintings which further combine the classical and contemporary ideas.
His background is particularly interesting in that as well as being an accomplished painter, he also has a PhD in Philosophy and History of Ideas, has written about Classical Antiquity and Aesthetics and is a lecturer in History of Art. His paintings have been exhibited in Sicily, Rome and London.,
Future Shows: Daniele's current exhibition is "Pervigilium Veneris" at Rupert Cavendish Antiques, 610 King's Road SW6 London, where he presents a selection of paintings illustrating the connection between beauty, desire and inner experience.
