Mauro Paparella was born in Benevento in 1962.
As a child, he moved with his family to Sapri, a town on the coast of the Gulf of Policastro, where he began to cultivate his passion for art.
He lives his adolescence and youth in a turbulent and adventurous way, visiting various Italian and foreign cities, breathing in their metropolitan atmospheres.
The adventures of his youth prevented him from training at the art academy, but it did not preclude him from studying this subject at all. He learnt as a autodidact, experimenting with various painting techniques since the early eighties. For about twenty years he had painted hundreds of works, classified by him as experimental ones, due to his deep dissatisfaction associated with self-criticism. During this period, Paparella aims to search for his own artistic identity, which seems to be slow to reach for his sensitivity.
On the advent of the new millennium his stubbornness in experimenting with increasingly bolder solutions, finally rewards him by giving life to his particular style, proposed without turmoil or hesitation.
Once Paparella overcomes his doubts, he finally decides to introduce himself to a wide audience and he starts to collect acclaim and awards that allow him to be among the most appreciated emerging artists.
