Daniele Cestari was born in 1983 in Ferrara. In 2009 he graduated in Architecture and then he devoted to painting. His artistic path is deeply tied to his university studies, which he fulfilled with a thesis upon urban planning. Within this context he developed his inclination towards the physical aspect of metropolis and urban landscapes by studying painting and photography. He realized solo shows in Italy and abroad (Boston, London, Amsterdam, Mykonos, Sophia). In 2011 he was invited to the Emilia Romagna Pavilion at the 54th Venice Biennial, and in 2014 he was asked to take part into the exhibition "Ritratti di Città – Urban Sceneries"curated by Flaminio Gualdoni at Villa Olmo in Como. Daniele Cestari lives and works in Ferrara.
