Michele Toniatti was born in Bormio on 13 April 1969, in the province of Sondrio. Already at an early age he discovers a great passion for drawing and painting and delights in small installations of objects and wood carved, deposited in the forest, which moved from day to day.

Experience art, understood as liberation of his inner thoughts, mirror of those pre-adolescent moments experienced. At just 11 years old, in fact, he painted ”shoes 1981”, a work that caught the teacher’s attention Ombretta Redondi: it was she who gave him his first easel, with brushes and oil colours. Source this interest in art, visit museums, galleries and exhibitions of great painters of the past. His his self-taught course of study is mainly centered on Picasso, Mirò and Boccioni , Velazquez, Veerner, Michelangelo and Caravaggio.

Figures of fundamental importance for the stylistic development and career of the artist. The long process of technical experimentation leads to happy and original results: in the 2000s he experimented with new techniques, using earth and resin, with which gives shape to a portraiture production whose privileged subjects are the icons of the history of rock music. Experimentalism is combined with an equally varied stylistic repertoire, from figurative, abstract, informal.

Based on what has just been stated, its production is divided into two strands, one concerning portraits and a second relating to geometries, colors and pure pigments. “With Toniatti the informal, the abstract and the conceptual of the twentieth century find one lyrical and rational communion together with modern elements such as resin, plastic and LED lighting. Toniatti’s research overcomes feelings such as joy, pain, rapture, nostalgia, horror that are masterfully purified leading to a vision of sensitive much deeper.”
