Ritratto di Andrea Baruffi

Andrea Baruffi was born in 1949 in Lizzano in Belvedere, Bologna, where he lives and works.

After graduating in Architecture in Florence in 1975, he moved to the United States and immediately received considerable acclaim for his activity as a graphic illustrator for the major New York newspapers and magazines, acquiring international fame over time. He collaborated with New York Times, Daily News, Newsweek, Time, Business Week, Fortune and with the most important American advertising agencies such as Young & Rubicam, Gray Advertising, Ogilvy & Mather, J. Walter Thompson. He curated the national campaign for Artemide of America and Blue Cross Blue Shield (Health Insurance Co.) Since 1991 he has been using digital images for his creations and since 1993 he has also devoted himself intensely to painting participating in numerous exhibitions and contemporary art fairs.


Andrea Baruffi's pictorial research is inspired by Edward Hopper's atmospheres, with an elegantly ironic and surreal note that makes it unmistakable. Among the most significant presences in the European artistic field, some of the most notable personal exhibitions are the ones in Gubbio, Bologna, Rome, Milan and the participations in Artissima Turin, Artefiera Bologna, Miart Milan, Museum Parma, as well as international fairs. The exhibition activity has intensified in recent years and sees him as protagonist at the Galleria il Polittico in Rome with two solo exhibitions, in 2008 and 2010, at the Anna Breda Gallery in Padua in 2011, at the Axelle Gallery in Boston and in New York during in 2012, the year in which the personal exhibition at the Galleria Forni in Bologna was also held. Last in chronological order is the solo show at the Sabiana Paoli Gallery in Singapore.
