Antonello Matarazzo is a painter, director and video artist. The core of his research is based on the ambiguity between still image and motion. The link between his painting, video and video installations is his tendency to the exploration of introspective and anthropological aspects of mankind. This is the reason why his videos are shown as an educational tool in many University, like Brera and Cambridge.
