About the Artist
Mario Loprete graduated from the Accademia of Belle Arti in Catanzaro, Italy. He lives in a world that he shapes at his liking, throughout a virtual pictorial and sculptural movement, transferring his experiences, photographing reality throughout his filters, refined from years research and experimentation. Painting for him is the first love. An important, pure love. Creating a painting, starting from the spasmodic research of a concept with which he wants to send a message to transmit his message, it’s the base of his painting. The sculpture is his lover, his artistic betrayal to the painting. That voluptuous and sensual lover that gives him different emotions, that touches prohibited cords…
The new series of works on concrete it’s the one that is giving him more personal and professional satisfactions. It was the result of an important investigation of his work, the research of that “quid” that he felt was missing. Looking at his work in the past ten years, he understood that there was the semantics and semiotics in his visual speech, but the right support to valorize the message was not there. For my Concrete Sculptures, he uses his personal clothing. Throughout some artistical process, in which he uses plaster, resin and cement, he transforms them in artworks to hang. His memory, his DNA, his memories remain concreted inside, transforming the person that looks at the artworks a type of post-modern archeologist that studies his work as they were urban artefacts.
