Sergio Cerchi was born in Florence, where he still lives and works and where he received a diploma from the Porta Romana Art Institute and has attended courses at the Cherubini Conservatory. His education included, from its beginnings when he was very young, interconnected experiences in music and the visual arts.
These became inseparable passions which he cultivated with tenacity and determination, and wich brought him into the workshops of diverse artists and led him to play in various musical groups. He began to paint at about the age of 15, experimenting with varied tecniques and approaches until he developed his own style. “Figures and Geometries “constitutes his version of the real, accentuated by an ethical impulse that expresses not only artistic values but also philosophical, historical and psychosocial ones. From his first pictorial works with landscapes and vistas, his style evolved towards”cubist” evocations and re-workings of his own experiences which radically changed in color and material structure.
