Massimo Tizzano Zuigan is an Italian painter mainly inspired by the works of Baroque painters such as Titian, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and many other Ancient Masters.

 

He has been drawing and painting since he was a child, but he began his formal education in the visual arts field only much later in life, with the practice of Japanese calligraphy (Shodo) under the guidance of Sensei Norio Nagayama from whom he received the name Oto Mi and the qualification to teach the principles of this noble art.

 

After 8 years of practice with Indian ink and rice paper, he began painting with oils and began studying the painting techniques of the Italian and Flemish masters of the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries as self-taught.

 

In 2010 he met the work of Odd Nerdrum and in 2012 he was selected to become his studio assistant in Norway, where he was able to deepen his painting technique and the understanding of kitsch philosophy related to the history of art.

 

Tizzano has been operating in the artistic and cultural sector for over ten years, dealing with the creation and reproduction of works of art according to traditional painting techniques, the preparation of themed exhibitions, as well as the organization of practical theoretical courses related to the ancient traditional techniques of oil painting.

 

In particular Tizzano is known for making art copies of the most beloved Masters of the most flourishing and significant period of Western painting (14th / 17th century: Leonardo, Caravaggio, Ver Meer, Rembrandt, Perugino, Cagnacci, etc.). The copies, faithfully realized according to the techniques and materials of the time, boast national and international awards and admirers.

 

To his credit he includes exhibitions in prestigious contexts and public recognition by critics, newspapers and international film productions (in 2017 he is contacted and interviewed by the chief editor of Rai Parlamento, for an episode aired on Rai 1 in the ambit of "7 giorni" program: in 2016 he is specifically reached in its study in Italy by the troupe of the Norwegian production documentary film "The hunt of Odd Nerdrum" for an interview).

 

The quality and quantity of Tizzano's production as a copyist constitutes a unique cultural heritage. The exhibits set up enclose some of the greatest and most famous masterpieces of Baroque-Renaissance painting, thus allowing the visitor an experience that is impossible to experience otherwise, that is admiring in a single context museum quality reproductions of works of art to see which would be needed go around the world. These are works carried out by hand and without the aid of any optical device except his eyes, retracing the compositional process of the originals themselves.

 

Vittorio Sgarbi,one of the most accredited and influent Italian art historian, defined him as one of the best copyists in circulation.

 

His work retraces step by step the recipes and phases of the work in use in the Renaissance laboratories: Tizzano maniacally prepares his own canvases and wooden supports, composes and applies the primers himself, grinds the colors by hand and realizes mediums and paints according to ancient formulas, with particular attention to the specific techniques of each Master.

 

Tizzano's paintings are collected in several important collections in Italy, Europe and the United States.
