Mirko Baricchi was born in La Spezia in 1970. With his high school studies behind him, he attended the Palazzo Spinelli Art and Restoration Institute. After working as an illustrator in Mexico, he returned to Italy at the end of the ‘90s intent on dedicating his life exclusively to painting. His most recent work is distinguished by an insistent series of procedures cadenced by the rapid actions of applying and removing pictorial material with the greatest liberty in composition and subject where only a minimal trace of figurative stylistic traits remains.
His works are present in the following CAMeC collections, Modern and Contemporary Art Center, Battolini collection, La Spezia; Cassa di Risparmio della Spezia Foundation, La Spezia; BoCs Art Museum, Cosenza; Civic Collection of Drawing, MuSa, Museum of Salò (Bs).
He lives and works between Vicenza and La Spezia
