Bio

Sandro Chia nasce a Firenze nel 1946. Studia presso l'Istituto d'Arte e all'Accademia di Belle Arti dove si laurea nel 1969. Dopo la laurea viaggia in India, Turchia e attraverso l'Europa prima di stabilirsi a Roma nel 1970. Negli anni '70 inizia ad esporre a Roma e in Europa, passando gradualmente da un lavoro concettuale ad uno stile pittorico più figurativo. Successivamente si sposta a New York, dove rimane per due decenni, con dei frequenti ritorni a Montalcino, vicino a Siena. Fece parte del movimento della "Transavanguardia" italiana, esponendo nei più importanti musei e gallerie del mondo. Oggi vive tra Miami, Roma e Castello Romitori, una proprietà vinicola a Montalcino, dove segue la produzione di vini prestigiosi, tra i quali il Brunello che vinse il Concorso Enologico Internazionale nel 2010.

Sandro Chia was born in Florence in 1946. He has studied at the Istituto d’Arte and then at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence where he graduated in 1969.
After graduation, he has travelled extensively in India, Turkey and throughout Europe before settling in Rome in 1970.
During the 1970’s he began to exhibit in Rome and Europe, gradually moving away from conceptual  works towards a more figurative style of painting.
The following year he moved  to New York City, where he will remain for over two decades, with frequent trips back to Montalcino, near Siena in Italy.
He has been part of the Italian “Transavanguardia” movement, exhibiting in many of the most important museums and galleries of the world.
Today he lives between Miami, Rome and his Castello Romitorio wine-making estate in Montalcino,
where he also follows the production of prestigious wines, amongst which the world-famous Brunello wine which has won the 'International Wine Challenge' for best red wine in 2010.
