Belgian by birth, Vito Masi spent his early childhood and adolescence at Marchienne-au-Pont (Charleroi).
The Flemish masters magic, caught live in museums and studied in school textbooks, enchanted the artist since his childhood:
his sensitivity was nourished by evanescent and rarefied atmospheres and by the crepuscular fascination of North European modern art .
The first stages of the artistic and expressive research led Vito Masi to be inspired by the early 1990s great painters; he interpreted and translated, in an intensely personal way, their absolute power of colour and the dynamic cut of the form.
The artist was still young when he moved to Italy where he started his learning process that soon led him to master pictorial art and specialize in technical studies which will be essential for the spatial construction of his works. His first artistic experiences attributed a leading role to the human figure that often stood out against the backgrounds and geometric contexts echoing quivering lines and futurist dynamism.
