Sandro Chia is an Italian artist, best known for his neo-expressionist paintings and sculptures, in which figuration is characterized by dynamic compositions and a bold use of line and color. He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence in 1969. After traveling in Europe, Turkey, and India, he settled in Rome in 1970, where he began exhibiting the following year. Around the turn of the ’80s, together with Clemente, Cucchi, De Maria, and Paladino, he was one of the main exponents of the Italian neo-expressionist movement baptized Transavanguardia by Achille Bonito Oliva. He then moved to New York where he lived for more than 20 years, teaching at the School of Visual Arts in New York. Chia’s works have been widely exhibited in institutions around the world, such as the Tate Modern in London, the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the Rufino Tamayo Museum in Mexico City, and the Nationalgalerie in Berlin. In 1980 Chia took part in documenta 7 in Kassel and the Venice Biennale.
