The painter Ugo Felici was born in 1954, Pesaro, Italy. The artist is classically trained, having studied with Italian modern artists such as the sculptors Lorraine Sguanci and Claudio Candelaresi and ceramicist Romulus Verzolini. Further refinement of his skills were guided by his studies with the Italian modernist painter Franco Fiorucci.His watercolour paintings are understated and measured, while his oil works combine cubic mass form defined by overlapping geometries of colour blocks. Particularly noteworthy are Felici’s recent portraits of women with simple chromatic backgrounds, central and iconic reflecting the contemporary trend of portraiture as a key medium for artist innovation and discovery. Select solo exhibits include Rocca di Mondavio; Galleria Expo-Ex, Senigallia, and Sala San Domenico, Pesaro. As well he participated in a number of group shows including at the National Gallery of Art, Washington DC, United States; Mostra pittorica collettiva Gruppo “Il Cenacolo” Sala San Domenico, Pesaro.
