Sandro Cabrini, born in Milan in 1948, studied at the Artistic High School of Brera and in 1975 he got his degree in Architecture at Politecnico University of Milan.
In 1968, at the end of high school, he begins to be interested in painting and in creating a unique form of symbolic expression.
In this period, between the 60’s and the 70’s, he encountered the works of Klee, Kandinsky, Matisse, Mondrian, Picasso, Picabia, the Futurism and then the American ‘900. He learnt from them a passion for strong, primary colours, which he uses in his abstract and figurative works. Since then, his designer activity has always been accompanied by the pictorical activity.
In 1973 he increased his experience by travelling to London and Zurigo and, after taking his degree, he commits to design and he finalize the sign he will use to describe the population.
From 1995 to 2001 he has been invited to teach classes about “The instruments of written communication” at IULM University of Milan, where he further studied the themes of alphabetical writing and symbols.
It will be very important for his artistic life the encounter with Maurizio Vanni, Director and Curator of L.u.C.C.A Museum, who will involve Sandro in events connected to an important exhibition of Mirò in Tuscany.
