Angelo Pasquarelli

I am a versatile artist: photographer, videographer, illustrator and pop-art painter internationally known.


"The desire to express my creativity led me to embark on a life full of artistic experiences in various fields of the visual arts. My art is based on its marked versatility. In 1988, after starting as a self-taught designer, I attended the institute Montecelio where I took my first graphics course, learning the techniques of etching and engraving. At this time I also began incorporating ink and watercolor into my works. The iconographic subjects of this period include architectural views of the city of Rome and picturesque views of the medieval villages of the province. Up until 1995 I also enjoyed working as a cartoonist and decorator. In 2000 I became fascinated by the art of professional photography and began making a series of portraits in black and white, showing the elderly characteristics of the alleys of the Trastevere district. Later I collaborated with an agency of the Roman fashion with the task of enhancing the models, and some of my photos were selected and published on the covers of the magazine "Photography." In 2000 I started to work with various studios, specializing in services of weddings held in the capital, and shortly thereafter was used as an official photographer. Also in the field of photography, I specialize in “food” services, and in 2009 I did a shoot of dishes prepared by renowned and authoritative German chef Heinz Beck. In 2010 my professional career and creativity was further enriched when I began painting in acrylic on canvas, creating modern pieces ranging from medium to large in size. These paintings were inspired by the works of the famous masters of the American "Pop Art" such as Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, and Roy Lichtenstein, thus creating the "Dream Art." This is a very personal style of painting that depicts people's lives as if they were in a dream surrounding the image. I began painting representations of international celebrities and personalities, depicting their life history as an example for all. Two names that stand out among those portrayed are Nelson Mandela, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, and His Holiness, the 14th Dalai Lama. These works were donated directly to the subjects, and Mandela’s portrait is now located in a museum in South Africa, and the other painting is currently in Indiana at the residence of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama. In 2011, my passion and love of film led me to embark on the very demanding discipline of using a reflex camera to film wedding videos. In a short time I was able to master the art, creating elegant, cinematic style, video clips. Given my various abilities, I currently receive numerous requests from wedding planners to shoot video for weddings of wealthy and often international couples that choose Rome as the location for their unforgettable day."
