Accardi’s debut on the artistic scene was strongly characterized by what in Italian Art is referred to as “figura”, a representation of the human body, as well as by pictorial and symbolic art. A short interval at the Art Academy of Naples marks the beginning of an identity crisis that will go on for a few years, and in this period his work evolves toward the abstract.
In the beginning of the nineties Accardi sets up his personal studio at Sapri and embarks on his pursuit of depicting figures against a social background; in the same period he exhibits in prestigious galleries in Italy and abroad, such as Rossetti and Pini in Rome, the Manzoni Art Studio of Milan and the Klaus Lea Gallery of Munich.
In 2001 he launched his association with three prestigious galleries: Verrengia of Salerno, Spazio Arte at Rovereto and Battaglia of Milan, followed by personal and (collective) group exhibitions, such as “Speed Generation” and “Vicious”, which will give Accardi access to more appealing, stimulating artistic environments. In 2011 the art historian Marco Vallora selects Angelo Accardi for the 54th Venice Biennale.
Later he begins working with the “Galleria Palma Arte” of Saliceto di A., “Galleria Il Novecento” of Salerno, “Simon Bart” of Porto Cervo, and “Gallery Percapita” Carpi. Today his works are treated by international galleries including Artion Galleries in Geneva and Athens, Ransom Art Gallery in London, Zenzero Art Gallery of Lugano and Avant Gallery in Miami.
