In the 1960s, Antonio Di Viccaro found his dimension in society. In this period he experimented with materials, using stucco tinted with strong colors and a pallet knife to create his paintings. The colors were almost monochromatic, his houses shades of gray and brown.

Di Viccaro's first works were already subjected to an internal logic. He organized quadrates of color, modulated by the thickness of the stucco, in a metric way so that when viewed as a whole they created a singular, unpredictable optic-chromatic effect. Recurrent characteristics emerge in the stucco. These, however, should not be mistaken for thematic repetition, because the polychromatic stucco on the almost monochromatic surface is charged with shadows, secrets, and an ever changing tension.

In the 1970s, the party with color began. Di Viccaro painted perfectly readable landscapes, which showed traces of a controlled geometry and a liberal, more figurative expression. At the end of the 1980's, after success abroad, the artist had accumulated a mass of work. Having painted for more than thirty years, dedicating himself to the study of color, his style underwent an evolution, and he became one of the “New Italian Landscapists”. At this point Di Viccaro wanted to verify his style. He researched a series of new directions, bringing back to his work a new richness and reconfirming the validity of his work during the preceding period.

Antonio Di Viccaro remains true to his style; an ever deepening expressiveness acquired through the necessity to continually increase the intensity of color and light in his paintings. Antonio Di Viccaro paints sun drenched landscapes, the moods of the sea, summer days bursting with color. His world has not changed; it has been enriched, as well as his style. Using his experience with materials he creates a tension in his paintings, which intensifies the observer's physical sensations.
