Maurizio Donzelli lives and works in Brescia. He taught for seven years Theory of Perception and Psychology of Color at the Accademia di belle arti Santagiulia in Brescia.  He produces drawings, paintings, textiles, sculptures, and installations through which he seeks the meeting point of the real world, our perception of it, and its artistic representations. His approach to making art is rooted in philosophical considerations of the nature of perception, and how visual phenomena such as color, images, and art itself affect the way we see and understand reality. He considers drawing both an intellectual and technical pursuit, and it is central to his practice. Donzelli’s work also features mirrors, which he sees as symbols of the process of perception. With their simultaneous ability to reflect and distort, they also mirror our own variable and inevitably inexact comprehension of the surrounding world. In one series, Donzelli layered sheets of lenticular glass over watercolor drawings; the works appear to shift and distort as viewers pass by them.

He has published numerous publications, including Spettacolo di Niente (Mazzotta, 2003) on the occasion of the exhibition curated by Luigi Ficacci at the Calcografia Nazionale in Rome, Lo Sguardo Del Disegnatore (Edizioni l’Obliquo, 2003), Metamorfosi (Mousse Publishing, 2012), Maurizio Donzelli (Edizioni Shin, 2014), La Linea Del Tutto curated by Luca Cerizza (Mousse Publishing, 2016) for the exhibitions in Lugano and London.
