THE ARTIST Paolo Canevari is an Italian artist, born in Rome in 1963. He works and lives between Rome and New York and is one of the most internationally renowned artists of the his generation. He has participated in numerous museum exhibitions, public commissions and publications throughout Europe, the Americas and Asia. His work is collected by major museums throughout the World, including Museum of Modern art MoMA, New York. Paolo Canevari’s work stems from thoughts and reflections on the transient nature of art and on the significance of artistic sculptures in modern society. While wondering on the value and origin of the most intimate aspects of memory, the artist develops his own personal language where symbols, pop culture, historical knowledge and politics are intertwined in a new interpretation of daily life.

THE ARTISTS “They are unlike any artists you may have met in the millennium. Irreverent, humorous and comically dark, their works — paintings, sculptures, installations and a series of ingenious games — are designed to be entertaining but underlined by a social, spiritual or environmental message. As artists blurring the lines between fine art, pop culture and product placement, they have faced their fair share of criticism. However, their deeply aesthetic creations, reflecting the concerns of our times and backed by mountains of research, have also found tremendous following. Their work has been auctioned at Sotheby’s with eight figure price tags, been picked up by art collectors like Frank Cohen and pop star Elton John, and also been placed alongside international contemporaries like Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami and American multimedia artist Matthew Barney”.
