Having completed his military service, he decided to attend the Art Institute of Bari and so it was that he began to explore the various nuances of the art. Between the ’70s and ’80s he began to experiment with his early work through artistic nudes and still lifes, using pencil and paper, later he would use oil paints on canvas to play still lifes, nudes and landscapes of his beloved Puglia.
Puglia, with its rich landscape of colors and vibrations, which are released during the spring, has always been the source of inspiration for all of his paintings.
His palette captures the colors reflected from the sea, sunrises and sunsets with their succession of lights, shadows, flares at night where the colors are trapped in the fullness of time, the marriage of light with the landscape.
Monet was his inspiration since the time of high school, in fact the great Master said: “The landscape is the best place to capture the flux of light. ”
Antonio Anelli is a landscape painter , he plays with colors soft but full light of the typical landscape of his homeland , painting white houses and rocky terrain. His painting lives of the emotion of the past and present , of that emotion in him that is timeless. Antonio Anelli captures and transfers us with a sure hand all this, in its genuineness of expression , in contrast with today’s civilization , withered barbarized .
He is the witness of sunshine still alive and nature which must be loved and cared, so that it may continue to excite us.
From the 80s until today Antonio Anelli has had many collaborations with several galleries throughout Italy, which have helped to promote and raise awareness of his paintings in various exhibitions, art galleries private and public and in demonstrations in various Italian cities .
