Gabriele Maquignaz was born in Aosta in 1972.
Gabriele immediately showed a very creative nature and in his path he combines a strong rootedness to his alpine land and the Matterhorn with an interest and curiosity that transcend borders. Gabriele is a researcher fascinated by the possibility of expressing the spiritual dimension of being through art. As a young man he became a ski instructor and developed various hospitality businesses managed by his family, but his path has now been traced towards the world of art in which he will express himself at the highest levels. Gabriele is trained with solid foundations in poor art and has his roots in African, oceanic and pop art, as well as in the path of the great masters of the '900 with particular attention to Picasso, Giacometti and Matisse up to Basquiat and Shnabel . Gabriele's eclecticism and versatility lead him to try his hand at painting, sculpture, mixed media, conceptual art and design that is expressed in his jewels, clothes and furnishing accessories. He participates in various collective and monographic exhibitions and in the footsteps of spatialism he founds an innovative vision of the third dimension in art, that is the spiritual and otherworldly one that goes beyond space and time. Gabriele expresses this vision in art with his extraordinary doors and coines an elliptical cut that engraves on the canvas in ever different and innovative ways. Sister Marie Ange paints like her father Aimé, confirming the artistic and creative streak of the family. Gabriele's works are purchased by Italian and foreign collectors and a visit to his atelier at the foot of the Matterhorn is a very intense experience. Numerous art critics and sector journalists have written about him, including Philippe Daverio, Maurizia Tazartes, Gabriele Accornero, Vittorio Sgarbi, Salvo Nugnes. The main national media outlets and various international formats talked about Gabriele.
