The International Tattoo Show in Riccione has the pleasure of hosting an exhibition of the multifaceted Milanese artist Mastro, an icon of Italian art that with his Insight Out from Architele will leave an indelible memory in all of you.
Born in Milan where he lives and works, he is confronted with various forms of art, from graphics to illustration, from the aircraft to the brushes, from paper to the walls of streets, bars, pubs and houses. From Spray Art to painting on canvas, from color to sculpture, in various forms. From the setting up of clubs and discos to sculptural and structural scenography for events and television. Material and materials do not constrain its expression by their intrinsic nature. It exhibits canvases, sculptures and recycling creations. His works are instinctive, but are studied at the same time, active and energized.
“INSIGHT OUT“ at INTERNATIONAL TATTOO SHOW – RICCIONE 2017
Insight Out, the artistic response and the aesthetic resolution of all the processes that lead to human feelings: love, passion, tension, changes in moods related to enduring or temporary situations. The Architele, as they are skin, tend, twist, contract; On their surface appear depressions and tensions that simulate breathing held or driven by emotion or passion. In the skin metaphor as a body canvas, in the work as in the tattoo, each one tells who he is, what he or she wants and can express himself. Metallic spheres and semipheres, extroflexions, traces of red blood, bring to the mutations and perforations created on and on the skin in the practice of piercing. And like in every form of art, someone prefers a more explicit or iconographic language, others prefer a more symbolic or metaphorical language with which to express themselves. Thus the “Architele” tell of passions and drives that, in the search for a balance between black and white, between light and shadow, between passion and reason involving the artist, the work and the observer. The Tattoo represents the same emotions that involve the tattoo artist, the work in the tattoo body, and the observer. And both ask for a tribute of blood and suffering.
