MOSAICS 360° | The Work of Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction

The mosaic that becomes a pixel, the pixel that becomes a photograph, a photograph that becomes a sculpture.
Mosaic 360 ° is the contemporary human being, aware of his body, aware of his role; an aesthetic human being, narcissus, to follow and share.
Mosaic 360 ° is a 360 degree view of who we are and who we were, they are paper and pvc “photoscultures”, a modern mosaic.
Two identical, mirrored photoscultures, one in black and white and the other in color. The past and the present confronting each other in an intimate look.
The work is designed, analyzed, tested and created to meet the criteria of reproducibility and seriality. An “Art-Design” that blends the design and production processes of fashion and design and takes over the world of art, irreversibly revolutionizing it.
The equation is: as the artist varies, the result of the work does not change.

2 busts, 2 bodies that look at each other, identical in shape, different in the image.
2 paper photoscultures, one has a texture in black and white the other in color.
2 photographic close-ups on the contemporary human being, which are reflected in each other in a temporal succession between past and present.
It is an engineering of the body, an organic architecture on which to build infinite stories.
Two apparently unique sculptures, but it is in its relationship with space that Mosaic 360 ° develops its characteristics as a work of art, while in its technical reproducibility, on the other hand, it justifies its values as an object.
It is an object that seeks its aura and that plays with the perceptive processes of the human eye and with the observer’s relationship of proximity and distance.

From 3d to 2d and vice versa.

Self-supporting sculpture, hollow, a succession of colored rhomboid tesserae similar to mosaic, the perceptual result of the color sequence forms an image in the human eye, which in this case is the bust of a human being.
In Mosaic 360 ° the boundary between man and machine is not definable, both collaborate to a final result, and the use of technology is essential for the creation of this project, otherwise it would be impossible.

Portrait 360° | MADE IN CHINA

A personal vision of what piqued my feelings in the first 6 weeks of residence in Beijing. Through the use of stereotypical images and universally recognizable I drew a line between decoration and human aesthetics. A pictorial decoration that takes a module of “Temple of Heaven” in Beijing, a traditional porcelain of the Ming Dynasty, a portrait of a Chinese woman by the hair color unequivocally blacks, these are the subjects that make up the new work “Made in China” . Mine is an aesthetic and a synthesis operation that uses the shape of the human face to tell the worlds, places and ways of being human. A meeting between textures and colors, which shall presume to tell a continent, China, through an aesthetic vision. Despite the modernity and progress that has subjected this nation, uses and customs, traditions and the past live in harmony with the contemporary.


Following this balance between past and future, I made use of cliches that characterize the traditional Chinese aesthetics for readapting to a more contemporary story linked to the specificity and the human ability to create beauty through decoration, painting or their own bodies. With the use of well-established technique of interweaving of paper which I work for a few years that find complete affinity to this part of the world I created this new work I have deliberately called MADE IN CHINA, because it was conceived, created in China and wants to show that China is not just the world’s factory, but also the home of special aesthetic that we often forget the existence and that we should give more space and recognition in the Western world.

在过去和未来的平衡之后,我利用表现中国传统美学的寓意,来看待一个更具现代感的故事,与特定性和人类通过装饰,绘画或自己的身体创造美丽的能力有关。 通过使用成熟的纸张技术,我在几年之内工作,发现与这个世界完全亲近的纸张,我创造了我故意称之为“中国大陆”的新作品,因为它是在中国设计的 并希望表明,中国不仅仅是世界工厂,也是我们经常忘记生存的特殊审美之家,我们应该在西方世界给予更多的空间和认可。

Loris Cecchini – A Poetic Artist

Combining photography, drawing, sculpture, and installation, Loris Cecchini forms a unified poetics, the cardinal element of which is transfiguration. All these different elements in his work interrelate in a constant process of deconstruction and reconstruction. Having a curious nature and intrigued by the correlation between art and life, he explores the results of many different styles and sciences. Based on the idea of a “model”, his work ranges from collages, architectural models and rubber objects to distorted spaces and transparent surfaces. Familiar forms become altered versions that challenge the viewer’s perception. In his series Wallwave Vibrations, Cecchini created relief sculptural tattoos that seem as if pulsating from behind the wall.

Roberto Cuoghi – Exploring The Matamorphosis

Working with video, sculpture, installation, painting and drawing, Robert Cuoghi explores the diversity of form and appearance. His practice constantly engages the concept of metamorphosis and change of identities. One of his early works involved his body going through a metamorphic process to become his own father, pushing the physical capacities to the maximum. In another agonizing venture, he wore lenses that flipped his sight 180 degrees, hoping that his brain would eventually account for the shift and right his vision again. One of his recent works from entitled Šuillakku – corral version explores the hybridization through the large-scale, immersive sound installation merging music of Western and non-Western cultures as an imagined ancient Assyrian empire lament.

Never2501 – Abstract Monochromatic Murals

Mind melting and visually compelling monochromatic murals of street artist Never2051 (or just 2501) captivate viewers with their strong abstract imagery and amazingly skillful line work. Created with nothing more than paint brushes and, in most cases, only black and white colors, his paintings of numerous curved lines that turn into wonderfully detailed abstract characters and shapes, demand strong attention from audience in order to be fully comprehended. Being extremely energetic and prolific artist Never2051 has, in the last twenty years, been extremely active in the street art scene and created an astonishing body of work that has been exhibited on walls and in galleries worldwide.Domingo Milella - Gagliano Castelferrato, 2007, via parisphoto comDomingo Millela, via it

Domingo Milella – Capturing the Coexistence of a Man and Landscape

An established Italian photographer, Domingo Milella creates epic contemporary landscapes that reflect the old-age concern of how man and landscape coexist. Capturing caves, tombs, ancient sites and hieroglyphs, cities, homes, and cemeteries, he charts the man’s imprint on earth and the point where civilization meets nature. Developing this project over the course of the last nine years, he is focused on creating an aesthetical catalogue of “the human landscape as it is”. These photographs emerge from and challenge classical ideas of the landscape in art history, and seek an alternative iconography in which an almost forgotten past coexists with the present.

Vesod – Geometric Figurative Work

Artistic attitude of Vesod has been greatly influenced by his father, Italian surrealist painter Dovillo Braro. Born in Turin in 1981, he started developing his interest in the graffiti since the early 1990’s. Over the years, while pursuing academic education,  he developed a personal painting language which drew inspiration from both renaissance art and futurism. With the idea of representing the three dimensions of space and time, Vesod paints geometric figurative work of exploding colors and deconstructed forms in perfectly balanced compositions. Using nothing more than cans of spray-paint Vesod produces intense and masterful images of high contrast and staggered motion, which blur the borders between fine and street san arts

Moneyless – Geometry as the foundation of nature

Teo Pirisi, also known as Moneyless, got involved in the street art movement during the 1990s as a member of  the Tuscany graffiti scene. During his studies at Carrara Fine Art Academy he developed his unique signature style of geometric art which seems to quote a Platonic vision of geometry as the foundation of all nature. Coming from the graffiti background, Moneyless experimented with the letter forms, gradually simplifying them to basic lines and geometrical patterns. Through his bedazzling paintings and installations, he shows an amazing artistic ability to transform abandoned or natural environments into cutting-edge, admirable pieces of art by reducing things into their rawest form and trying to say more with less.Filippo Minelli - Nothing to Say, via graffuturism comFilippo Minelli - Silence Shapes, via normalsoup.blogspot com

Filippo Minelli – Exploring the Aesthetics of Protest

The versatile artist Filippo Minelli was initially engaged in street art, developing his own unique style based on the aesthetics of protest. He brought politics to a new level bay decontextualizing the use of tear gas, reversing the function of flags, and borrowing from the aesthetics of protest slogans. In 2007, Minelli started his ongoing project entitled Contradictions, a land art project where he wrote the names of social networks and corporations on the walls of slums in developing countries pointing out the gap between the reality we live in and the ephemeral world of technologies. Beginning in 2009, his ongoing photographic series Silence/Shapes portrays smoke bombs in romantic landscapes, juxtaposing the beauty of nature with the violence and chaos in political demonstrations.

Peeta – Spectacular three-dimensional graffiti

Peeta (Manuel Di Rita) is an Italian graffiti artist, painter and sculptor who is internationally famed for his mind-boggling three-dimensional graffiti which appear to be flowing above the painted surface. Member of several renowned international graffiti crews (FX, RWK and EAD), a true master of shading techniques through the use of gentle gradients of color, Peeta creates spectacular artworks which give the illusion that light is hitting them from different sides at the same time. Using careful perspective, his perfectly shaped, spraypainted graffiti of formidable visual depth appear like sensational hovering sculptures of vertiginous and shiny shapes that seem to twist and wind in front of the wall.

Today they produce gigantic portraits of mainly anonymous people, made from their own photographs and consisting of thousands upon thousands paper strips. Their art is poetic and at the same time extremely powerful and it has become a part of the urban landscapes of cities such as Rome, London, Paris and New York.Luca Francesconi - End of the rivers,  2014, via progettodiogene eu

Luca Francesconi – Admiring the Symbolic Rationality

The artist Luca Francesconi attempts to explain the phenomena of the world by using the irrational and the “para’s” of the underworld. Through scientific knowledge, biology, physics, ancient philosophy, the occult and magic rituals, he creates personal mythologies with an eminently metaphysical expression. In this way, he tackles complicated themes and issues through seemingly simple forms. Formed around diverse dualities, his pieces emphasize the relativity of our perception. Using found objects that the river Po carries along, he transforms these discoveries into the very subject of his work. His art connects the nature with culture, attempting to search for the origins of the world. The admiration towards the symbolic rationality is evident throughout his work.

Blu – Anonymous Genius

Blu is an extraordinary street artist from Bologna who has been involved in the Italian street art scene since the late 1990s. All this time he has been very successful in concealing his true identity, which is pretty fascinating given the sheer size of his easily recognizable public artworks. Blu’s epic scale murals made in house paint, with the use of rollers and telescopic sticks, inhabit urban and industrial landscapes of cities throughout the world and stand as artist’s commentary of social and political controversies. His most famous artwork is a seven-minute silent animated mural called Muto which is composed of hundreds of wall paintings, and which took several months to create in the streets of Buenos Aires.Italian Urban Artists

Agostino Iacurci – Boldly Colored Murals

Agostino Iacurci is one of the most prolific Italian street artists, recognized for his monumental, multi-layered and brightly colored murals of synthetic forms and flat shapes. Always considerate of the architecture and context of the environment he works in, Iacurci creates seemingly simple and very accessible artworks of boldly colored, whimsical characters which lack gestures and seem to readily accept bizarre situations they often find themselves in. His signature narrative-like style paintings can be found on walls both small and large all around the world, including some of the more exotic locations such as the skyscraper in Taiwan, school in Western Sahara and inside the maximum security prison near Rome.Andrea De Stefani Installation, via artribune com

Andrea De Stefani – Critically Observing the Environment

Addressing the way we perceive urban landscape, Andrea De Stefani likes to observe his environment as its critic, finding an array of connections, situations, and even truths. For him, the cognitive process is not amorphous matter. If cognition is an articulated process, whose extent is determined by numerous factors, an attempt to reproduce this experience depends on the disposal of a ‘favourable climate’ in which it can be reproduced as an image in its entirety. This year, he has won the miart fair award, the Menabrea Art Prize, dedicated to artists who are not represented by any gallery. The winning piece is a sculpture entitled On the beach, 2gethr, 4eva, and it is a hybrid of the Japanese bonkei and a tray landscape, all enclosed within a large glass box.

Pixel Pancho – Large-scale fantasy world

Pixel Pancho is a highly talented street artist from Turin and one of the most outstanding protagonists of the Italian urban art scene, who specializes in large-scale murals, and is considered to be one of the most prominent artists in his field. This graduate of fine art studies has been creating original street art work, reminiscent of Michelangelo’s classic compositions, since 2001, steadily gaining a large following. Pixel Pancho uses a wide variety of mediums to create mesmerizing paintings of a 1950’s futuristic fantasy world, filled with hybrid robotic creatures and references to pop culture icons, executed in an earthy color palette which gives them a more ancient feeling.Giovanni Kronenberg - The Wonders of Wunderkammer

Giovanni Kronenberg – The Art of the Wunderkammer

The artistic oeuvre of Giovanni Kronenberg is rather intriguing and it calls to mind the world’s most extravagant wunderkammer. Using objects like sea sponges, a whale vertebra, a 300-years old, large bonsai, the narwhal tooth, and other hard-to-find items coming straight from the cabinet of curiosities, he throws a sharp spotlight on the ancient-like sculptures of natural forms. Placed in a suspended time, these sculptures made out of visionary artifacts are surrounded by the elusiveness of geological eras past and future. Taking us back to a different time, his art makes us question our evolution.

Michele Gabriele – Creating Containers for Finite Narrative

Inspired by the paradoxes created by the differences between digital images and physical works of art, the work ofMichele Gabriele focuses on the disappointment these differences often end up resulting in. Using a variety of materials such as concrete, dog food, rocks, or appliances, his practice is very versatile. The majority of these materials seem as if they could be found in post-apocalyptic environments. He manages to tame visceral reaction by interacting the ostensibly grotesque with the idea of thematic play. His main interests are the shapes made by humans and the rest of nature, as well as architecture. He describes his pieces as containers for finite narrative.

Alo – Strong Lines and Blocks Of Color

Alo (Aristide Loria) is a street artist from Perugia who has been living and working in London since 2011. He is widely known for his unique abstract and geometric portraiture, which features strong lines, blocks of color and text replacing objects and organs. Alo’s art is strongly influenced by both German expressionism and African art, and it represents the artist’s research of human feelings and troubles. Alo creates all of his public works on site, but he very often cleverly chooses to paint over previously fly posted posters to give his pieces an effect of paste up, and even though he uses the same technique for each of his colorful pieces, each character he paints retains its own personality.

Portrait 360°


Portraits are 360° degrees views of humans social. Humans that share their own face, face that in Portrait360° is conceived with an unusual rotation of the face

Attracted by the beauty of Byzantine mosaics and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representations of the image curious and innovative.

I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending and I have identified in the process of weaving an alternative way for the realization of three-dimensional object adapted to the shapes of the body. I used these two-dimensional surfaces such as pictorial space and trough an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colored sculpture of paper intertwined.

Despite the amazing complexity of the realization, the forms created staged an authentic game of surfaces, shapes and colors. It’s express the will to intrigue the viewer through a visual and tactile experience. The observer is thus encouraged to active the elaborate process of perception based on sensory and cultural contrast. Approved in the form.

Are portraits. Are people. Are anonymous identity. It’s an abnormality  of thought. Portrait360° represents profiles contemporary people to 360 degrees.

Attracted by the beauty of fabric construction and starting from the concept of warp and weft, I developed a system of representation of the image curious and innovative.

I started to investigate the ways in which a sheet of paper can change according to the type of cutting and bending, and I have identified in the system of weaving an alternate way to construct three-dimensional shapes. The idea is not to create three-dimensional objects based on body shape, but turning a two-dimensional surface like paper or canvas, 3D object adapted to body shapes. I have been using these two-dimensional surfaces as pictorial space and through an elaborate system of digitization of the image I created three-dimensional portraits. The result is a colorful sculpture of paper or canvas intertwined. Are portraits. Are people. Anonymous identities. It is an abnormality of mind. Portraits are a 360° of contemporary people.

Despite the surprising complexity of implementation, the forms created enact an authentic game of surfaces, shapes and colours. It expressed willingness to intrigue the viewer through a Visual and tactile experience, activating of processed perceptual processes based on sensory and cultural contrast.

Portrait 360 di Gianluca Traina

Portrait 360

Attratto dalla bellezza della costruzione del tessuto e partendo dal concetto di trama e ordito, ho elaborato un sistema di rappresentazione dell’immagine curioso e innovativo.
Ho iniziato ad indagare i modi in cui un foglio di carta può cambiare secondo il tipo di taglio e piegatura, e ho individuato nel sistema di tessitura un modo alternativo per la realizzazione di forme tridimensionali. L’idea non è creare oggetti tridimensionali basati sulla forma del corpo, ma trasformare una superficie bidimensionale come la carta, in oggetto tridimensionale adattato alle forme del corpo. Ho utilizzato queste superfici bidimensionali come spazio pittorico ed attraverso un elaborato sistema di digitalizzazione dell’immagine ho creato dei ritratti tridimensionali. Il risultato è una scultura colorata di carta intrecciata. Sono dei ritratti panoramici. Sono delle persone. Delle identità anonime. E’ un anomalia di pensiero. Sono dei ritratti a 360° di persone contemporanee.
Nonostante la sorprendente complessità della realizzazione, le forme create mettono in scena un autentico gioco di superfici, forme e colori. E’ esplicita la volontà di incuriosire l’osservatore attraverso un esperienza visiva e tattile, di attivare degli elaborati processi percettivi basati sul contrasto sensoriale e culturale.
Portrait360 è l’essere umano urbano, globale e contemporaneo. Omologato nella forma. A corredo di città protagoniste. Libero di essere esteticamente anonimo. Sono delle visioni a 360 gradi di esseri umani sociali, che ci mettono la faccia. Faccia che in Portrait360 è concepita come abbigliamento della testa. Quindi disponibile a variazioni di gusto.
