Raffaele Fiore was born in Naples on August 13, 1961.
He began to paint at a very young age, following an inclination that emerged among the school desks and soon turned into passion.
The effective entry into the world of art and painting was in Turin in the early 1980s. His desire to represent reality by updating the teaching of the great masters of the past leads him to enhance the expressive potential of a naturally versatile and refined pictorial manual skill through a careful and constant study of color, techniques, composition, light. An uninterrupted experimental tension also brings him closer to
practice of sketch and portrait; worlds that are apparently simple, but in reality an exercise of extreme technical difficulty and expressive challenge for any painter who intends to define himself as such.
