Mirko Baricchi was born in La Spezia in 1970. After high school he moved to Florence, where he attended the Institute for Art and Restoration Palazzo Spinelli. After graduation and a short stint as a graphic designer, he left for Mexico, a trip that marked his life as an artist. Shortly thereafter he participated in a group show at the Museum Siqueros, receiving positive feedback from critics. After more than two years he returned to Italy, and moved to Milan. During this period, he decided to devote himself exclusively to painting. In 1998 he relocated to La Spezia where Cardelli & Fontana presented his paintings. During his career he has exhibited at several art galleries such as: Galerie Fabrice Galvani in Toulouse, Galleria Bianconi in Milan, LA Artcore in Los Angeles, Galleria L’Ariete in Bologna. In addition his work has been presented at the Museo della Permanente in Milan, CAMeC in La Spezia, Fondazione Ragghianti in Lucca, Castel S. Angelo in Rome.
