Fortunato Orazio Signorello was born in Catania in 1967.
Since the beginnings, he approached the painting in a self-reflective way, exploring its possibilities and the specific borders of the media in the interaction among the artistic processes, materials and shapes.
He is assignee of several prizes. By invitation he took part in prestigious expo and national and international. He is reported and quoted in over than 125 publications (dictionaries, annual, books). Among the most recent shows we recall: Expo Milano 2015 (Il quadrato, Milan), Italiani. Selezione d’arte contemporanea (curated by Vittorio Sgarbi, EA Editore, Palermo), Index. Artisti allo specchio (of Francesco Gallo, CSE Edizioni, Agrigento), Eccellenze. Sguardi sulla pittura contemporanea (curated by Paolo Levi and published by EA Editore, Palermo).
He integrated the artistic commitment with a fruitful cultural and journalistic activity.
He is also an appreciated art critic, editorial director and cultural promoter.
In 1991, he was nominated Siciliano dell’anno.
He is President of the Accademia Federiciana of Catania.
