Self-taught artist, Gennaro De Martino was born in Naples in 1984. Raised in one of the families of Capodimonte ceramists, he experimented with the art of ceramics from a young age by attending local artistic workshops. In these early years of activity, he engaged in the creative process of artifacts in plastic materials. Starting from the primary elements, Earth, Air, Fire, and Water, he explored art, laying the foundation for what would later become his expressive poetics.
The desire to communicate through art, to express himself without compromise, initially led him to attend the Academy of Fine Arts in Naples and then to challenge himself by approaching various disciplines: from writing to photography, from screen printing to life and technical drawing, actively collaborating with fashion and architecture departments.
In 2012, along with other artists he met along his journey, he founded the association "Visionarea" and organized various artistic and cultural projects such as live art performances, happenings, art installations, street art works, and the creation of authorial short films.
