Antonio Zuiani is an Italian visual artist from Friuli-Venezia-Giulia, born in Gorizia.
“The roots of his inspiration come from different time frames and different aesthetics:
from Surrealism to Neofuturism, from Decadentism to Avant-garde,from Brutalism to Parametric, from Analog to Digital.
His research concern light design, trough drawing, painting, sculpting and photography; the experience as light designer in architecture studios, deeply influence his production process where the artist predicts effect of light inside the artwork, creating a 3d perspective on a bi-dimensional media.
The output is a scenery, an aesthetic landscape made of multiple atmospheres, moods and characters.
Inside this scenery the rules are made by the artist, he trasport the viewer inside his world, creating in the public a desire to play with the mind, to build their own story linked with the artwork.
Each drawing is a different chapter of the same book, a continuous slideshow of windows open on the same vision, a parallel dimension with its own time and space”
Giulia Zorzella, writer for Artribune magazine
Technique “Oil Bas-Relief”
