Luigi Gatti was born in Milano in 1951.
After completing his university studies, he enriched his humanist and artistic culture by studying the greats of ancient and modern art.
He graduated from the Fine Arts Academy of Brera (Milano) and it was not until 1985 that he timidly, and with great modesty, started showing his works upon the encouragement of the art gallery owner Otello Gnaccarini, who already then perceived his qualities.
In an era where everything is appearance, a ‘mise en scène’, Gatti has chosen to work in a bare, minimalist environment, free of useless ornament, in an unusual, but highly stimulating rural setting: where life pulsates in all its forms.
Gatti is capable of penetrating into the human soul, of capturing every vibration, every whisper of feelings.
He lives and works in Zibido San Giacomo (Milano)
