Roberto Matteazzi

Roberto Matteazzi was born in Vicenza (Italy) in 1992. At an early age he developed a passion for drawing, enjoying the transformation of a simple sheet of paper into something more, into something that would find expression, exciting those who observed it. After graduating in 2011 from “G. De Fabris” in Nove (Italy), he decided to start working for his family’s business “Fucina Artistica Matteazzi”, as a blacksmith. An ancient artistic profession that his family has been in for generations. From the hammer, anvil, and iron to pencil and charcoal. Fascinated by black and white, Rob now tries to fascinate all those who observe his artwork. Some of his works are taken from photos and images found on the web and re-interpreted in a personal way, in black and white and with charcoal technique. Two of them were chosen to be included in “International Catalog of Contemporary Art Arteide 2015”: “Tenerezza” and “Lo specchio dell’anima”. In this period his technique is perfecting and Rob sees an increase in requests especially for children, a subject very dear to the artist who succeeds in capturing their sweetness starting from soft and bright eyes. His drawings conquer criticism and above all social media. It is published in the biggest and most important online pages including “Drawing Pencil”, “Art People Gallery” and “Arteide”. In a short time the first relevant collaborations with famous brands and especially with Disney arrived. It is in fact with the latter that in December 2017 Matteazzi is involved in an extensive Influencer marketing project to support the promotion of the film, enjoying over 190 thousand followers on social media. Together with 9 other international artists selected among the most influential and appreciated in Italy and with a strong presence on social media, Roberto creates “Coco e Dante”, then exhibited at the international preview of the film in Milan. In 2018 this collaboration continues with another Marvel “Black Panther” masterpiece.
