Andrea Mancini is a fashion illustrator and artist and director of the 166ARTE art gallery in Florence. He has always lived a daily meeting with books, traveling companions, great loves. His painted canvases have intimate beats, evocative atmospheres. Delicate and pasty colors, light on light, the ocher inside penombre. Assimilating the painting in search of disquietude, this is Andrea Mancini’s goal. His canvases are reproduced as prints on selected and precious fabrics that become elegant clothing accessories or objects for the home, designed by his wife Stefania Alba and displayed for sale in the gallery.


Some of his works have been acquired by the Marino Marini Museum and the Diocesan Museum of Florence. Numerous international exhibitions appear in his curricullum. He holds painting and illustration workshops in schools and academies, he lives and works in Florence.
