Andy Warhol was one of the most famous artists of the twentieth century and one of the most important exponents of Pop Art.
Graphic artist, painter and director, Andy Warhol was an all-around artist, as well as the greatest proponent of the concept of reproducibility and commercialization of the work of art. After the first exhibitions dating back to the fifties, the eclectic artist began to make the first serigraphs around 1962, choosing as subject for his works comic book characters, commercial products and icons symbol of his time. From Popeye to Superman, through the cans of soup and the bottles of Coca-Cola, the images chosen by Warhol were taken from the American mass culture and then elaborated in series, so as to bring to the extreme consequences the concept of an art that had to be consumed, just like all commercial products.

“Every day thousands of images fight each other to get our attention and the artist’s difficulty consists precisely in being able to stand out and communicate on this discontinuous background. The fact that most of those images are photographic, television images, can be an advantage for the artist because a painting has the ability to show something different, a more personal view of the world, transmitted by a different means of communication able to really capture the attention in a more original way. This is what I try to do with my work, to offer an idealized alternative, a more brilliant reality, inspired and nourished by the things I see and experience. For me the key elements of creativity are memory, technique and imagination, so I try to keep these things alive in my work and constantly improve.”
Vincent Sangiorgio cultivated his personal research as a figurative / abstract artist and using the professional name Monk. He created a remarkable and vast production of works experimenting with the technique of wood inlay which he calls “inlay in relief ” while participating in various collective and personal exhibitions. In 2007, under the patronage of the Municipality of Taormina (ME), he set up an important personal exhibition at the deconsecrated church of S. Francesco di Paola, a very prestigious place for art, used by the Municipality only for important art events and historical artists such as Mirò and Andy Warhol. Critical note by Dr. Caterina Di Giacomo, critic and art curator: “The cultural matrix of Vince” MONK “Sangiorgio recognizes itself in the aspiration of postmodern tendencies to overcome the cold cultural detachment, absorbed in the design processes by the objective values of Opera. In fact, the artifact is in itself the product of a technical skill that has absorbed aesthetic lessons of the most varied, mostly marked by what is now termed an Italian term Genius loci, the ultimate goal of his artistic operation. It is the stamp of the applications that the creations of Sangiorgio find in the field of furniture and decoration almost “toys for adults”, with the shrewd sense of an irony that is at the base of its creations. The joyful and playful spirit, the technical versatility are the technical characteristics that distinguish the Art of Sangiorgio, at the base of the wood inlays to the pittosculptures that characterize part of the artist’s production, it seems curiously to oversee a path of interest in the paradigms of the second futurism one thinks above all of Depero’s pictorial decompositions of Segantini’s divisional influences, of the furniture created by Giacomo Balla and of Dada’s desecrating inventiveness and of the Pop phenomenon.

SEVERINO DEL BONO
Growing up in a family that lived and breathed art, Del Bono’s upbringing fostered a deep connection to the concept of beauty within him, particularly in his development of expressive investigation as an artist– a quality that can be frequently observed in his paintings today.
On Del Bono’s canvases are fixed alterations and slight deformations of faces in the foreground that force observers to investigate the emotions of the subjects, creating a sort of silent and solitary interior monologue.
The influences of a Caravaggesque light merge with the expressiveness of Francis Bacon and the investigation focuses on the female face where they imprison, with traits from the hyperrealist tips, expressions that result in irony by means of objects that assume an importance symbolic and iconic: women portrayed are the embSeverino Del Bono was born in Nuvolera (Brescia) in 1966.
The women portrayed in Del Bono’s symbolize the escape from chaos and everyday reality.
His works have been exhibited in various contemporary art fairs and art galleries in Italy and abroad.
Painting is the main language in which Boemio expresses his artistic creativity. However he considers semantic and expressive features of different artistic techniques and materials such as
the wood’s ductility, the iron, the bronze-brass fusion, the laterizio, the pottery, some industrial products, the photography and the image’s digital processing. Through them Boemio’s painting has flown into sculpture and extramedial communication.He associates his artistic expression with his own humane and social experience. Like this Boemio faced some thematic cycles in “Trappole maieutiche” – “Biographic” –“Afona” – “Ready Made”, “Ready Dead” and “Fragments migrant” confronting himself with his own Time and with the absolute value of human dignity.He feels the constant need to understand his own Time taking a polemic attitude but without biases and prejudices.
ANTONIO DI VICCARO
The artistic career of the landscape artist Antonio Di Viccaro, origin of Castelforte, in the province of Latina, is marked by a strong and incisive key, colour, the protagonist of all his creations. It defines him as a painter, which is confirmed along his path, because his work is made of colour, a prevailing presence, the result of which in time will demonstrate the acquisition and the adoption of a precise exploration of colour. A passion discovered at a young age, a born talent turned to mastery, thanks to a career of study, persistence and work.
The color dazzles, in some places the oil is so generously laid on the canvas that you almost want to touch; sometimes you have the sensation of hearing the roar of the waters of a stormy sea tinged with a light blue, or caress overlapping glazes in a calm lake. Then the detail, the care lavished in particular to attract the attention. Windows washed by a strong light but reassuring, flowers nestled among the bustling streets, where the human figure is rarely represented, protagonists being nature, life, love for beauty. Di Viccaro feels nature, creates the landscape, which is illuminated through its internalization in a process of revision which becomes evident in the work.
The landscape is full of optimism, even when the painting shows a scene at dusk because the light has already been manifested, temporally prior and existing. The colour is a means to exert a direct influence on the soul, suggests the father of the abstractism, V. Kandinsky, the work of Antonio Di Viccaro, explicitly comes to the eyes, but its strength is in being able to even go further, thrilling and involving the soul of the viewer.
