Born in Cagliari, Ivan Pili is an international quoted painter, concert musician, composer and visual artist. He started his career as a musician who performed in a number of prestigious theatres. He then became known and received several official requests for the production of other murals after his construction of a wall painting in Germany in 2014. The spread of images through social media brought the first requests for participation in collective exhibitions. The first presentation of his art in a group exhibition was in 2015. He started off with the use of acrylic colours, then moved on to dedicating himself to the use of oil paints. His first subjects were always the figurative, despite some attempts to paint landscape and still life, the figurative evoked live scenes and aimed to a common public, just like those at his concerts. He held his first solo exhibition at Saint Augustine Palace in Salerno. The minimalist scenic essence and expressiveness gave rise to his later hyper-realistic figurative works.
