Sandro Chia is an Italian painter and sculptor who was a key member of the Italian Transavanguardia movement. This was a movement to revive painting and reintroduce emotion back into art. Sandro is best known for using Neo-Expressionist in his paintings and sculptures. He typically catches his subjects in movement and uses bold lines and colours in his work. His intent is to convey a sense of drama and emotion with the use of a vivid palette and energetic brushstrokes.
