Past Exhibitions / DARIO BALLANTINI
Eclecticism comes to life with Dario Ballantini. Two souls, two intertwined identities, characterize the artist’s life and the body of work. He stretches the boundaries of an aesthetic category towards a personal experimental artistic research.
Ballantini is in fact a multifaceted artist: a celebrity impersonator and a fine art painter. These two combined identities are a springboard for the artist’s quest on the study of the individual. In his artistic view, he sees the individual made up by a dynamic fragmentation of infinite characteristics, a strenuous and challenging path to face the rapid social and cultural changes in a globalized era.
As celebrity impersonator he studies at depth the identity of his characters, as painter he analyses the psychological complexity of the human being.
Lost static faces, quick instinctive brush strokes and vivid colour try to capture the artist’s most inner feelings and unanswered questions.
