November 5th, 2015 - Creativity, colors, shapes, and the joy of living: in less than a month, on Wednesday, December 2, Munich (underground line U3 / U6 Universität Ludwigstraße, near the northern Siegestor entrance) inaugurates the exhibition by Serio Digitalino entitled "Elements of lightness." Born in Matera in November 1956, and the artist has lived in Munich since 1977. His art translates into sculptures, oil, acrylics, charcoals paintings and even wall paintings in trompe-l'oeil style. Art is for this artist a chance to represent the joy of living. In his paintings, Digitalino loves to play with color and light, and above all to narrate the lightness in his works: joy and lightness are produced by the energy of radiant colors, objects and abstract figures. The purpose is to provide, through the combination of a realistic representation and an emotional expression, works that feed well into our modern reality. The curator of the exhibition, Karl Honorat Prestele, will have the task to present the art pieces on opening night (which begins at 7pm), while the public will be able to admire Digitalino’s "light elements" until January 5. The exhibition, as stated on the website of the Italian Institute of Culture of Munich, was organized by Bezirksausschuss 3 Maxvorstadt Unterausschuss Kultur, and was sponsored by the Italian Cultural Institute and the Forum Italia.

His talent was clear to those who knew him early on, and to give greater expressive power to his art, Serio Digitalino studied privately with Maestro Helmut Vakily. Today, Digitalino teaches graphic design and painting and organizes exhibitions and events with artists belonging the most diverse movements. He is also a founding member of the artistic association "Pons Art", a member of the artistic circle "Kaleidoskop", the group 83, and the Plastic-Figurative Artists’ Association (VBK). Digitalino is Vice President of the Arbeitskreises Kultur am Hasenbergl, of the cultural association Tölzer Land, and of other associations that are designed to support collaboration between different cultures.

Serio Digitalino


was born in November 1956 in Matera (Basilicata), in southern Italy, and has been living in Munich since 1977. His great talent was already evident at school.

The diversity of his artistic expression is inspiring. His art takes the form of sculptures, oil & acrylic paintings and charcoal drawings as well as wall paintings that create the illusion of architecture. In his pictures he plays with colour & light. Sometimes colours are dotted on the canvas, sometimes they are pasted onto the background in furious brushstrokes.


To be able to add even more expression to his art, he has studied privately under the painter Helmut Vakily.


Serio Digitalino senses that his role is not only to create his own art but also to motivate, inspire & support others. He teaches painting & drawing and he organises exhibitions & events with artists working in a wide variety of genres.


Furthermore, he is editor of the culture calendar of Munich's 24th Area, he is a member of the "Künstlerkreis Kaleidoskop", "Künstlerkreis 83" and of "VBK Vereinigung Bildender Künstlerinnen und Künstler" (the Association of Visual Artists), he is deputy chairman of the working group "Kultur am Hasenbergl", and he is active in a number of organisations that aim to encourage the coexistence of cultures.

Serio Digitalino is very connected to nature, and this is evident in his drawings.


With the help of the bark of the kozo tree, he has created a cycle of works that express both the power of nature and the breadth of his ideas.


One of these pictures he has titled "Signora". In this work, the artist demonstrates astonishing sensitivity in the way he has given voice to the message hidden in the grain of the wood: by adding just a few charcoal lines, he has turned the composition into a delicate feminine figure full of erotic grace.

For Serio Digitalino, art is a chance to depict joie de vivre. His wealth is his creativity, his love of experiment with colour & form, and it is a joy for him to interact with people. Through the radiance of colours and the interplay of representation & abstraction, his pictures convey effortless joy.


His aim is to create works that fuse realistic depiction and emotional expression, making them a perfect fit for our modern times.
