Matteo Martini

I was born in Milan in 1964 in an art family. My professional training began in 1983 in a prestigious graphic studio in Milan, where I gathered the traditional and artisanal techniques of graphics. With the arrival of the first computers, I began to approach the world of publishing. Thanks to collaborations and exchange of topics and ideas to face a new way of working, I began to know the world of thematic publishing (from tourism to architecture) and I introduced myself to the graphic design of new editorial products. Cooperation with designers and companies from heterogeneous sectors enhanced my learning curiosity.

In the nineties I started a long partnership with a consulting, marketing and communication agency in the IT sector, where I started designing websites for companies that dealt with spreading tools for digital communication. In 2000 I coordinated a working group in the field of web design and implementation within a multinational consulting company. Later I rediscovered the pleasure of drawing, painting, to write an intimate language with signs.

I dedicated myself to engraving and began to experiment with the various techniques in a very cosmopolitan artistic typography in Milan, the fulcrum of fervent exchanges, opinions and fun.


From 2017 I am collaborating with a theatre company, designing posters for several  Art’s Commedy festivals. I participate in a Civil Theatre workshop that allows me to learn another instrument of expression.


Currently I produce paintings of handmade small and large formats on paper, using nib ink, which sometimes underlines and other erases, builds a flow of visual writing that conveys the small in the big and vice versa. Various projects are in progress for personal exhibitions in Italy and abroad.
