(b 1976Italy. Lives and works in Genoa)
Nicola Villa trained as an architect and works with various media including painting, serigraphy, lithography, photography, and video, regularly combining these in one work. Developed over time, his unique visual language is alternatively and sometimes simultaneously abstract and figurative, narrative, fictional and documentary.
Central to his practice is the depiction of the human condition in all its variety and richness. He prefers the ordinary to the remarkable, generally choosing to represent people where and as they are.
