Davide Puma works and lives in Italy, his country of origin. He is establishing himself internationally as a powerful contemporary painter. His vision of the world, nature, and our place within the fabric of the universe strongly permeates his work and weaves a thread that develops as a powerful narrative throughout his artistic production. While constantly moving and shifting his focus to research and portray very diverse subjects – such as animals, people, religious figures, mythological creatures, surrealistic visions of metamorphosis – his work is always immediately recognisable for the intensity of his subjects, for the vibration of his strokes, for the distinctive textures, for the delicate colour palette, for the skilful mastery of spatula and brushwork; all these elements combining to ultimately describe a striking, and very unique, human and artistic vision.
In the last 10 years he had solo exhibitions in Milan, Rome, Como, Brescia and Verbier (Switzerland) Kyoto among others, and participated in art fairs in Europe and the US. Since 2013 his work is included in the permanent collection of the MACS Museum (Museum of Contemporary Art of Sicily) and in 2014 he painted Saint Tommaso Reggio for the Cathedral of Ventimiglia, Italy, where it is permanently exhibited. He currently works with art galleries in Italy, France (Paris) and Switzerland (Geneva).
