Sergio Valota - Artwork added to the Anglo-Italian Academy of Art Collection

Sergio Valota was born in Seriate, in the province of Bergamo, on the 28th of March 1957. Before devoting himself to painting, he has worked in graphic design, an activity that he has always carried out with great skill, obtaining excellent results. A meeting with Mario Donizetti changed his life and his conception of art, thanks to a strong study of traditions, not only from the aesthetic point of view, but also with scientific and rigorous research of ancient techniques and materials. Donizetti became his mentor, and Valota, a devoted and capable student, learned his skill and discovered his own personal style. 
In 1980 Valota made ​​his debut in Sarnico with an exhibition at the Gallery of Sarnico, then participated in the important International Art Exhibition at EUR in Rome, the New York Exhibition at the Coliseum, the Prado Museum of Madrid, an exhibition in Basel, and in 2012 at Palazzo Fatta of Palermo. In the same year, Valota was selected from amongst 2,500 candidates for the exhibition organised by the Chianciano Art Museum, Tuscany, and on this occasion he was awarded the prestigious 3rd Prize by the Anglo-Italian Academy of Art. At the London Art Biennale in 2013 he was elected a member of the Academy itself. His work was then displayed in an exhibition at the Galerie Seine, Paris.
The artist later took part in an exhibition in Monaco at the Grand Palais. Sergio Valota recently won the Golden Lion award of the Doges of Venice during the Biennale in Venice in 2013 and took part in a group exhibition at the Gagliardi Gallery in London, at the Berlin Exhibition, and at Palazzo Frizzi in Forlí, Emilia Romagna.
Valota is now at the peak of his career thanks to international recognition, and his extraordinary masterpieces can be seen in many collections all over the world.
Notably, the artwork “Icarus” was donated to the Anglo-Italian Academy of Art and will now travel around the world in temporary exhibitions.
