Artrooms Awards The Exhibition

Le Dame Art Gallery are delighted to invite you to discover some of the most interesting artists chosen among the finalists of the Artrooms Awards 2019.

The show is on until 31 January 2020 at the Melia White House, in Central London, featuring works from different media.

Walled City of Cats, drawing by Alexandra Pullen

Emerging artist Alexandra Charlotte Pullen has already been awarded of the Ashmolean Museum Vivien Leigh Prize and of the Rishi Mullett-Sadones Memorial Prize in 2014. Her works can be found in Collections such as the Ashmolean Museum in Oxford and at the V&A in London.

Children of Mount Abu, Oil on canvas by Domenico Pasqua

Domenico Pasqua is an Italian artist based in Belgium. With offices in Rome and Antwerp, he works both as architect and artist (photography and paintings). Domenico won Le Dame Art Gallery Prize as well as The Artrooms Institutional Award.

Diana, Oil on canvas by Emanuele Garletti

Emanuele Garletti is an Italian artist who has taken part to several edition of the Artrooms Fairs, including Rome and Seoul (South Korea). Selected among hundreds of artists, he has always been one of the most appreciated artists of our Selection Committees.

Family, paper by Juliana Bernal Jaramillo

Colombian artist, Juliana Bernal Jaramillo is clearly driven by four different languages: folding, geometry, symmetry and colour. With her artworks, she transforms paper into a masterpiece of complexity and perfection.

Chess players, Oil on canvas by Katya Granova

Katya Granova works with a variety of mediums, although her practice is gathered around past, history, experiences, and the ways she deals with them. Working with the imagery she has some connection to, like old family photographs, it is her own way to intrude the body of past with her own body presence. Painting becomes the act (or even a dance), between the artist, the work, the viewer and the past.

White Rhino, photography by Lindsay Robertson

Winner of the prestigious Crown Fine Art Award for Photography at The National Open Art Competition, Lindsay was the first photographer to be offered a residency at the prestigious ‘ Hermitage’ artist retreat in Florida, America’s only ‘by invitation’ artists retreat. During the residency his work came to the attention of the George Eastman House – the worlds preeminent museum of photography. Subsequently Lindsay was given the opportunity to bring the Eastman House’s Ansel Adams collection to Scotland, and to exhibit alongside this Legendary Master Photographer.

Misfolding (The Park of Remembrances) – Photography, Monia Marchionni

Monia Marchionni (Italy 1981) is a visual artist and fine art photographer, graduated in Academy of Arts at Bologna, and a second degree in Literature and Philosophy at Bologna with a degree in History of Contemporary Art (2008). She is fascinated by photography for that “double glance” typical of the medium, the “already seen” become the “never seen” with a different cut of the scene and with the imagination, where the boundary between reality and fiction becomes more and more confused.

Repetition 337, Gouache by Peter Bezuijen

Peter Bezuijen is a Dutch artist, illustrator and graphic designer. He has sold his work to buyers in Australia, the United States, Germany, Italy, Canada and the UK. Working since 1988, his style is characterised by his use of colour. Peter’s latest work, “Repetition: The Perfect Imperfection”, deals with repetitive imagery, and combines a feeling of calm and balance with a playful edge.

16 Mirrors, Mixed media by Sunaina Bhalla

Sunaina is a contemporary artist of Indian origin, who lives and works in Singapore. Educated in India, she moved to Tokyo in the late 90’s and has spent the last two decades in various parts of North and South Asia. Having completed her formal education as a textile designer specializing in print, she chose to pursue an immersive education in the traditional art form of Nihonga in Japan, where she spent 5 years studying under Ohta-sensei of the Kyoshin-Do school.

Quinta Essentia N8, Prima materia / Mixed media by Tania Welz

Born in Munich, Germany, Tania Welz has lived and worked in Rome for over 20 years. Welz started her career as a TV producer for VIVA TV in Germany, later becoming Promo Production Producer for the Italian offices of Orbit Communications Network, Sky, Universal and the National Geographic Channel. Concurrently she pursued her artistic research, experimenting with a multitude of different materials and textiles, transforming them into large abstract wall hangings.

Baglioni Gallery, a new space for Italian contemporary art in London

Roberto Grosso at Baglioni Hotel London

Baglioni Gallery in partnership with Le Dame Hospitality Art just launched a new space for Italian contemporary art at the prestigious Baglioni Hotel in Kensington.

The new project provides for 2019 – 2020 a rich program of exhibitions and thematic installations that will dialogue with the most important events in town, as in the case of the recent installation Solid by Alice Padovani exhibited at Baglioni Hotel during the RHS Chelsea Flower Show.

“It is an honour to collaborate with a brand such as Baglioni Hotels – says Cristina Cellini Antonini – with its elegance, the hotel offers an Italian experience to which attention and love for contemporary art have just been renewed. Just like at home, works are an essential element for the spirit and the mind.”

The exhibition is organized in two different spaces: the first with a completely feminine character – the Lobby – sees Federica Cipriani from Ferrara, whose artistic research focuses on harmony and movement. Using an alphabet made of shapes and colors, the artist transforms butterflies and clouds made of paper into elegant and light compositions. Already successfully exhibited in numerous European art fairs, Cipriani has won, among others, the Arte Cairo Editore Award, the Nocivelli Award and the Michelangelo Antonioni Award.

The second part of the exhibition, on the other hand, has a strong spirit and winds through the places of Brunello Restaurant & Bar, thanks to the strong expressiveness of Marco Tamburro and the technological innovation of Roberto Grosso.

Born in Perugia in 1974, Tamburro is undoubtedly among the most interesting and established contemporary artists on the Italian art scene. After important exhibitions such as the Venice Biennale, Castel dell ‘Ovo in Naples, Palazzo Penna Perugia, Palazzo Medici Florence, he succeeds in the global market with exhibitions in Miami, New York, Sao Paulo, China, and Berlin. Published by the most important Italian art magazines, the works of this artist have received the praise of art critics who have defined Marco Tamburro’s intimate work as effective in conveying his cynical message: a punctual representation that cancels identities, substantiating the contemporary age of alienating depersonalizations in favour of metallic urban fabrics.

Roberto Grosso is inspired by music and the key element is the use of vibrant colours and Augmented Reality that allows the work to live a life beyond the frame, showing the different phases of realization accompanied by the soundtrack that inspired the work.

Flowers of Ethiopia

It is not hazardous to say that Robin Yong‘s journey, it’s a journey into beauty. The goal is a long journey made of miles of experiences merging directly into the definition of colours and light. This is the key to approach the perfect harmony of his shots, which touch a dazzling aesthetic, built not on simple expressive formalism or pure technique, but on a movement that has its roots in emotions.

Yong travels for thousands of miles, to meet people and immerse himself in different cultures. A journey in a different world, that he faces with the certainty that he will be able to go back to the roots where his artistic research lays. A passionate path towards that beauty which is expressed in such aesthetic perfection, because it is first lived and sedimented inwardly. As Susan Sontag loved to define the natural and profound approach to the work of art, so is Yong’s approach sentimental and almost erotic. Yong lives in a deep state of desire that allows him – as he underlines “my shots are made with natural light, without predispositions of artificial lighting systems” – to naturally grasp the essence of a beauty that already exists and that needs to be caught in its purity, in an unparalleled form.

Flowers of Ethiopia is one of Yong’s most surprisingly beautiful works. The journey in the Horn of Africa, in the Omo National Park, where ancient Ethiopian tribes live, brings him in a context of primordial nature, simple and pure, made of spontaneity, smiles, and innocence. The gaze of Yong frees himself of his “superstructures” to be able to grasp naturally what the great and wonderful mother nature offers him: flowers adorning other flowers, clothes of nature revealing purity, smiles for exchanges of understanding and friendship.

Flowers of Ethiopia is a tribute to the great people of a great land.  Yong did not simply picture the reality of life, he has designed it with his own colours. Naturalness that meets other naturalness, immortality of an encounter of love.

Impossible to not be appreciated.

London, March 7 – April 5, 2019

Antonella Catini

Antonella Catini nasce a Pisa, ma vive e lavora a Roma. Laureata in architettura, ha costantemente coniugato gli interessi per lo spazio, la forma e la percezione visiva con la ricerca pittorica. Lavora sul colore e la materia pittorica componendo forme e segni, attraverso un processo di sovrapposizioni e sconnessioni. Le tracce e le impronte lasciate sulla materia alludono ai percorsi e alle stratificazioni della psiche e si costituiscono come metafora di contenuti della contemporaneità. In molti suoi lavori la dimensione spaziale è spesso rarefatta, mentre domina il colore che diviene veicolo di intensa esperienza sensoriale. Le opere più recenti affrontano la tematica del paesaggio urbano e  della percezione del movimento e della velocità.

L’artista ha partecipato a innumerevoli mostre in Italia e all’estero. Le sue opere sono in mostra permanente presso spazi istituzionali e sono state pubblicate su numerosi cataloghi e riviste del settore. Ha esposto in Italia, Germania, Gran Bretagna, Turchia, Francia, Olanda, Spagna, Russia, Giappone, Cina. Ha al suo attivo premi e cataloghi personali.

Energie Fluide

Il Gesto e la Memoria

I paesaggi dell’anima di Antonella Catini

A cura di Gianfranco Valleriani

C’è un perfetto equilibrio nella pittura di Antonella Catini, che non è dato, ma ricercato e raggiunto in un gesto espressivo che non è affidato semplicemente alla tecnica, a una metodologia di processo, ma ad un movimento  interiore.

Monocromie, o policromie, che si muovono fino a trovare forme delicate composizione, lasciando intatto il segno dell’azione. E’ proprio in questo equilibrio tra movimento e forma che si compone l’opera pittorica della Catina. E sulla tela c’è l’espressività di un tracciato, di un movimento gestuale – come fa notare Philippe Daverio – che non è casuale o irrazionale, ma  che segue invece ricordi e emozioni; che muove da una propria interiorità in cui la tecnica accompagna solo, delicatamente.

La composizione finale è un gioco visionario tra il figurativo e l’astratto, dove il figurativo diventa astratto e viceversa, che assume i contorni di paesaggi immaginari, di elementi naturali che seguono fisionomie e luoghi del ricordo. E’ un equilibrio di toni, quando il gioco è policromo, o di semitoni, quando invece l’opera è monocroma; ma è soprattutto un equilibrio interiore, tra due parti di se stessi, tra ying e yang, tra femminile e maschile, tra movimento e forma, tra gestualità e ricordo.

E’ una tela materica, quella della Catini, che ha il sapore dell’evanescenza, della leggerezza; dove la fisicità della materia è solo motivo di slancio verso una dimensione interiore, della memoria o forse dell’anima.

Antonella Catini was born in Pisa. She now lives in Rome, where she obtained her degree in Architecture. She works on colour and pictorial matter composing forms and signs through a process of overlaying and fractures. She experiments with the surface of the canvas by identifying other dimensions and by exploring a parallel universe made of space, objects and places, where solid and void, inside and out, measure each other and continuously recall one another. Reality is fragmented, crumbled, decoded and interfaced through a process aiming also at inquiring the most hidden aspects of the “self”. The traces and imprints left on the canvas refer to the layering of the psyche and grow as a metaphor of contents of contemporaneity. The artist has taken part in numerous personal and collective art exhibitions in Italy and Europe.

Hugh Fleetwood

Pictorial narratives of Hugh Fleetwood
Curated by Gianfranco Valleriani
London, November 16, 2018 – January 4, 2019
Private View: November 15, 2018 from 7pm to 9pm
Natural landscapes that come alive from nothing. Forests and meadows as simple backgrounds of a mysterious presence of humans. Persons who become characters, with fixed glances that draw trajectories in the void. They look at each other; they interact remaining alone, reaffirming their identity, their lean and essential humanity. They look like to be in a sort of presence-absence, like a deaf cry, in a state of simplicity that becomes complex but only to return simple.
Animals, and trees and leaves and flowers, that become symbols. An essential composition that is sublime and perfect in its way.
There is an almost Flemish atmosphere in the “visual narratives” of Fleetwood, which involuntarily emerges, and it surprises us. His world is now real, now, suddenly, without any reference to reality, but only connected with our memories.
Fleetwood takes us into a suspended world; not a meditative world but only one made by pure admiration. His is not a hedonistic game; it does not chase the nice fairytale and gothic caricatures, nor the contemporary glitter of “skulls and diamonds”.
His atmospheres offer a classic style and stories of beauty suspended between life and death, between reality and dream.
It is precisely in this dimension that the “figurative” is moving towards a “meta-representation”. But without cognitivism, without numbers and without calculation, only with the lightness of poetry, of figures that, just as well as words, make up a simple and touching poem. It is precisely in this poetic gesture that Fleetwood builds his pictorial world, where he entertains himself and he quietly spends the time of his life.
With this suggestive retrospective, Fleetwood seems to invite us to take a walk, without haste, in his delight pictorial garden.
Gianfranco Valleriani

Notes for the Press:
Hugh Fleetwood is a painter, poet and prize-winning novelist.
Born in England in 1944, he moved first to France and then to Italy, where he remained for the next fourteen years. He had his first exhibition in 1970 at the Festival dei Due Mondi, in Spoleto; the year after, he published his first novel, A Painter of Flowers, for which he also designed the cover. His second novel, The Girl Who Passed for Normal, won the John Llewellyn Rhys Memorial Prize and his fifth one, The Order of Death, was made into a film – Corrupt in the U.S. – starring Harvey Keitel and John Lydon (Johnny Rotten).
In all he has published twenty-two books and he has been called one of the key authors in the history of the British and Irish short story; set to music, some of his poems have been performed at the Salzburg Festival.
He also designed the cover for his last novel, The Dark Paintings, and for a late publication of one of his earlier books, Foreign Affairs.
He currently lives in London.
Notes on “Metafigurative”:
“Metafigurative” speaks about a space between reality and dream, where every moment depicted by the artist seems to open up endless possibilities of stories and plots. What moves the gaze within his paintings is certainly the curiosity to grasp the shadows and tensions that every creature that inhabits his works brings with it.
Fleetwood’s depicts spellbound spaces, woods illuminated by blue and pink moonlight, animals that accompany men as guides and talismans, as a time of our past childhood, full of simplicity and happiness, to which the protagonists of Fleetwood’s artworks seem to turn.
The exhibition at Le Dame Art Gallery in London
Metafigurative at Le Dame Art Gallery is the largest retrospective on the Fleetwood pictorial production ever made. Only few exhibitions were previously held before the present one, at the St. Raphael Gallery and at The Calvert Gallery, both in London.
The retrospective at Le Dame Art Gallery will present a huge collection of more than 30 pieces, which cover the entire period of his pictorial productions, including three self-portraits. The small and medium size of his paintings – none of them is over a meter in size – built a mosaic of thousand visions and facts between humans, and between humans and nature.
Three poems, written by him, will be also exhibited, combined to his figurative universe, in continuous references between his arts.
Visual narratives and literature stories.
As the artist and novelist says, the visual narrative is not directly connected with the literary narrative. “When I write I don’t think about my paintings, and viceversa. And I don’t feel there is a direct connection between them”. But the suggestions and the atmospheres are easily are felt to be located in some place of his narrative paths, ambientation of the same episodes of his rich storytelling.
Also, some of his pictorial works have been used as covers of his books.
Starting from 1972, Fleetwood is author of:
– 16 novels
– 4 collections of short stories
– many poems, published in different and collective books.
Cinema adaptions and screenwriter
On the other hand, Fleetwood has contributed relevant events in the international movie production, as many of his books have been adapted to movie, and himself has been a successful screenwriter.
He has produced for about ten works in the cinema, as screenplay or script collaborator.
From his fifth novel The Order of Death has been produced an 80s cult movie, “Coopkiller” directed by Roberto Faenza with Harvey Keytel and John Lydon (Sex Pistol’s singer) as player; music by the Italian Maestro Ennio Morricone.

BSP by Sebastiano Bianco

BLACK SHADOW PORTRAITS a Solo Exhibition by Sebastiano Bianco

Palazzo Naiadi – The Dedica Anthology  – and Le Dame Art Gallery are delighted to present BLACK SHADOW PORTRAITS, a new exhibition by Sebastiano Bianco set from the 10th of October until the 3rd of December 2018.

The Black Shadow Portraits (BSP) is a photographic project inspired by the art of cameos, carved jewels, and 18th century silhouettes, in which the image is of contrasting color to the background. The artist aims to achieve similar results using the contrast between light and darkness.



The shade creates a silhouette and leaves the rest to the imagination. Each viewer can add personal, intimate details to the characters.

“There is something magical and ancestral about the depths created by the color black – says Sebastiano Bianco – something we are all familiar with, as if the atavic fear of the dark we learned to overcome as children were now transformed into a magical portal through which we can access our innermost fantasies”.

Bianco create projects in which digital photography is used to re-invent the concept of portrait, one of the earliest forms of representation, which in 1681 art historian Filippo Baldinucci defined as a “figure drawn from reality”. A portrait is not merely a mechanical reproduction of a human subject, as it is the artist’s own vision and interpretation of the subject, through the lens of the artist’s sensitivity and his time.


“Crypto Connection” by Federico Clapis, Powered by Eidoo

London Becomes Home to World’s First Crypto Sculpture: “Crypto Connection” by Federico Clapis, Powered by Eidoo


Le Dame Art Gallery is delighted to present the world’s first public sculpture dedicated to the rapidly growing cryptocurrency ecosystem. “Crypto Connection – powered by Eidoo”, created by contemporary artist Federico Clapis and commissioned by the multi-currency crypto wallet and hybrid exchange Eidoo, is an imposing three meter bronze statue that poses questions about the future of global financing and the impact cryptocurrencies will have on future generations.

In Summer, “Crypto Connection, has been on display at Observation Point on Londons Southbank between the OXO Tower and the BFI and it’s now available at Le Dame Art Gallery for private viewings.

The use of classical sculpture in polished bronze together with a provocative futuristic topic juxtaposes perfectly to reflect the dichotomy of cryptocurrency itself: a seemly fleeting trend, yet built to endure.

Lars Schlichting CEO of Eidoo says, Were thrilled to unveil the first crypto sculpture in the world in the creative hub of London. With the crypto space developing fast we wanted to explore a way to communicate with a wider public using the hugely engaging medium of art. We have immensely enjoyed working with Federico Clapis who has managed to capture our intention through this awe-inspiring piece


Beyond Boundaries

BEYOND BOUNDARIES: The Journey of Indian Art from the Bengal School to contemporary

AA e-inviteAbundant Art Gallery was setup in 2017 with the aspiration of supporting emerging as well established Indian artists showcase their work in the global market. We are proud to present a bouquet of creative works of twelve painters, one printmaker and two sculptors in Le Dame Gallery in London. This is a unique opportunity to experience afresh the flavour of Indian contemporary art and its present trends.

Indian Art has travelled a long way since the introduction of western methods by the British in the 19th century.  British colonial rule  added another important influence on art in India and led to a fusion of styles and techniques. In the early 20th century Indian identity and heritage reasserted itself with the emergence of the Bengal School of Art.  With the active encouragement of British art teacher E.B. Havell (1861- 1934) Indian artists in Calcutta adopted traditional Indian ways of painting notably Mughal miniature style or folk styles such as “Kalighat”.  They used indigenous techniques such as the wash method.  This led to a debate about what Indian art should aim for? Historicity or embrace all international trends to reflect modern thought. Luckily contemporary Indian art has struck a balance between the two and coursed a journey which is much more reflective of india and her current position and context in the world.  We see a more confident contemporary art in India today which is distinctively Indian yet at the same time embraces elements of global art trends.

“Beyond Boundaries” show cases artists who represents not only the unbroken heritage of Indian art dating back to Mughal miniatures but also show how India is responding to more global ideas in the post-modern sense.

Our  selection of artists represent the widest possible form of expressions and creativity. They exhibit a vast horizon depicting reimagining of the Bengal school in Mohi Paul’s works to the abstract explorations of inner emotions by Shad Fatima. They showcase an element of sensibility which is embedded in Indian culture and heritage with the signs of co-travelling with world art at large. Our artists play a variety of media including water colour wash technique, acrylic and oil. There are traditional Indian motifs, mythical and historical contents as well as articulations of the artists’ inner journeys. It’s like a grand old man with a distinct cultural root stepping out into a new world full of new possibilities and potentials. No doubt E.B. Havell would have been pleased with this outcome.


Gods by Akelo

A Palazzo Naiadi “Gods” la nuova mostra personale di Andrea Cagnetti in arte Akelo

2004 NISOPalazzo Naiadi – The Dedica Anthology Hotels e Le Dame Art Gallery, sono lieti di annunciare “Gods” (Dei) la nuova mostra di Andrea Cagnetti in arte Akelo, che avra’ luogo dal 19 aprile al 12 giugno nella splendida Hall del lussuoso hotel.

Andrea Cagnetti – in arte, Akelo – è un’anima antica, un uomo del Rinascimento, che vive nel 21esimo secolo, coltivando una grande passione: quella di creare gioielli e sculture, che coniugano la sua creatività alla perfetta padronanza delle tecniche di oreficeria e metallurgia, risalenti a oltre 3.000 anni fa.

I lavori di Andrea Cagnetti si basano su miti, leggende e simboli tratti da un repertorio ancestrale ed elaborati attraverso un suo personale linguaggio criptico, che attinge al sapere alchemico, frutto dei suoi approfonditi studi sui testi antichi.

Dal 2010, l’artista realizza la scultura per il premio “Robert Besson Prize” per la Mostra del Cinema di Venezia. Tra I registi premiati: Maha mat-Saleh Haroun; Jean-Pierre e Luc Dardenne; Ken Loach; Amos Gitai; e Carlo Verdone.

I suoi lavori sono presenti in collezioni permanenti e musei quali il Museum of Art and Archaeology in Missouri e il Fine Arts Museum di Boston e il Museo di Newark. Tra le sue ultime mostre: “Akelo’s Treasures. An Exhibition Celebrating Twenty-Five Years of a Roman Master Goldsmith” presso la famosa gioielleria Bentley & Skinner di Londra.

Come afferma in un testo critico, Giandomenico Spinola (Responsabile del Dipatimento di Archeologia dei Musei Vaticani) “Andrea Cagnetti  parte  da  un  artigianato  antico  come  la  sua  terra,  quello  della  tecnica  orafa,  per  poi  evolvere  in  forme  artistiche  le  sue  opere.  Su questa  linea  ha  realizzato  le  sue  prime  creazioni,  tanto  vicine  ai  capolavori  dell’oreficeria  etrusca  da  mettere  talvolta  in  imbarazzo  molti  esperti.  D  qui,  ha  dato  origine  a  lavori  di  notevole  pregio  in  diverse  direzioni:  alcuni  lavori  rappresentano  la  prosecuzione  della  sua  rima  produzione  orafa,  altri  se  ne  distaccano,  ma quel che emerge in ogni sua opera, sempre e comunque, è una grandissima capacità tecnica e un’inventiva brillantemente espressa. In tutti i suoi lavori – anche in quelli in scala maggiore –  non rinuncia  mai  alla  cura  del  dettaglio,  anche  infinitesimale,  proprio  come  nella  migliore  tradizione orafa

Romans di Mauro Pallotta apre il programma al BOSCOLO Exedra Roma

Dopo #ordinaryheroes arriva al Boscolo Exedra Roma “Romans” la nuova mostra personale di Mauro Pallotta

Apertura al pubblico dal 16 febbraio al 15 Aprile

IMG-20180214-WA0005Il Boscolo Exedra Roma e Le Dame Art Gallery, sono lieti di annunciare la prima di una serie di mostre di arte contemporanea che avranno luogo nella splendida Hall del lussuoso hotel, a partire dal prossimo 16 marzo 2018.

Il primo artista ad aprire il programma e’ Mauro Pallotta, conosciuto ai piu’ con lo pseudonimo di Maupal, che ha appena lanciato la campagna #ordinaryheroes.

L’artista romano e’ noto alla stampa internazionale come Street Artist, soprattutto per il suo Famoso “Superpope”, il murales con cui ha rappresentato Papa Francesco nei panni di Superman. Dal Washington Post a Yahoo News International, al Chicago Tribune e Le Monde, giusto per citarne alcuni, negli ultimi anni Mauro e’ tra gli artisti Italiani piu’ rappresentativi sia in Europa che oltre Oceano. Nel 2014 il suo lavoro e’ stato mandato in streaming sui maxi schermi di Seoul, in Korea. Ed e’ sempre con il suo “Superpope” che Mauro oggi e’ protagonista del progetto #ordinaryheroes, un progetto benefico lanciato dal Vaticano che conta testimonial d’eccezione come l’ex capitano della Roma, Francesco Totti, che firma anche la maglietta sulla quale è stampata l’immagine. Dal Pupone al Pibe: l’ex numero 10 nomina come suo successore un altro collega, altro grande numero 10, Diego Armando Maradona.

Il Messaggero

Oltre a essere un rinomato Street Artist, Mauro Pallotta nasce da studi classici e negli ultimi venti anni ha raffinato una tecnica e uno stile molto personali, utilizzando lo spray acrilico (come si usa nei  murales) sulla lana d’acciaio con estrema precisione e maestria. I lavori di Pallotta hanno sempre forti riferimenti socio-politici, come le opera presentate in anteprima al Boscolo Exedra per la mostra personale “Romans”, come racconta lo stesso artista: “La mia ricerca, oltre che pittorica, è anche storica. Nel percorso biografico dei più illustri personaggi dell’antica Roma, ci sono spesso degli incredibili parallelismi con i tempi che stiamo vivendo. Il mio obiettivo è quello di sintetizzare alcuni elementi che, oltre a raccontare in maniera ironica e satirica il personaggio, creano anche ossimori o parallelismi con l’attualità che ci circonda.

Dal 2015, l’artista e’ rappresentato da Le Dame Art Gallery di Londra, con cui e’ stato recentemente protagonista di eventi come “The World Travel Market – London” con l’installazione site-specific “Bagaglio a mano” e Miami Art Basel.

Il 2018 inizia per Pallotta con “Romans” e a pochi giorni dall’apertura, dal 2 al 4 marzo, prosegue con l’installazione “La Citta’ dell’Anima”, opera realizzata dall’artista per la prima edizione italiana di Artrooms, nota fiera britannica per artisti indipendenti, che inaugurerà a Roma presso l’hotel The Church Palace.

Doppio appuntamento romano quindi, per tutti coloro che hanno voglia di conoscere un po’ piu’ da vicino Mauro Pallotta.
