Raffaele Minotto

(Padova 1969 -)


Raffaele Minotto was born in Padua in 1969.
His meeting with the engraving takes place during the years of study at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice, where he obtained a diploma in painting in 1991.
Among his participation in events dedicated to the art of engraving, there are indicated the exhibitions ‘Incisori Veneti’, organized in Padua, during the ‘Mese della Cultura 2003', and, in 2006, ‘Omaggio a Mantegna,' at Villa Contarini in Piazzola sul Brenta (PD), both edited by Giorgio Segato.
In 2004 he won second prize in the international competition of graphic art 'Fabio Bertoni' in Urbino.
Between 2008 and 2009 his works are in the itinerant exhibitions ' Dialogo - 10 Incisori Padovani': among them, we remember the participation at the 6th International Biennial of Graphic Design at the Museum of Novosibirsk in Russia and, in 2011, the exhibition 'Dialoghi incisi. L’arte del Segno tra Padova e il Giappone ': the exhibition at the Centro Culturale San Gaetano is documented by an important catalog of Antiga Edizioni.
In 2010 he was invited to create a plate in memory of Federica Galli, during the opening of the Foundation dedicated to the artist, in Milan.
The magazine 'Grafica d’Arte,' on 90 issue (April / June 2012) dedicates a comprehensive presentation of the work of Minotto, by Paolo Bellini.
