Sossio Mosca - Naples 1954 -Pittura From 1968 to 1972 he studied Art at the Liceo Artistico of Naples – Santa Maria in Costantinopoli where he graduates and subsequently, in 1976, receives his degree in Painting at the Accademia di Belle Arti of Naples Years of great movement and growth for the new Neapolitan School in which Sossio is pupil to such painters such as Domenico Spinosa, Armando De Stefano, Guido Tatafiore, Gerardo Di Fiore, and Gianni Pisani – all culturally stimulating- that contribute to his primary formation. In 1972 his first personal exhibition is held at the Galleria D’Arte l’Incontro in Naples. In the same year he enrolls in the Beaux Arts Academy in Naples to study under Maestro Domenico Spinosa. From 1976 to 1978 he holds numerous personal shows in the circuit of Neapolitan Galleries navigating in the waters of cultural and artistic renaissance of the city. In 1978 he holds courses of Drawing techniques and figure drawing at the Liceo Artistico in Naples. In the 80’s he moves to Tuscany where together with his career as Entrepreneur he begins an interior search that will include defining his own personal style. The experience of the first several years proves itself essential in his formation, particularly for the inspiration received through the readings gathered from the Creative Universe born from his encounters with the Dreamer. He lives and works in his studio in Versilia, painting canvases in this period that tell stories with colors in the absence of figures.
