On the 23rd of January, 2014, the Art Academy’s halls will host an opening of the exhibition “Suspended animation”. The highlights of the exhibition are works by the Italian master Cristiano Pintaldi.
The exhibition is organized by the publishing house “Il Cigno GG Edizioni” together with the Russian Art Academy Museum and is a part of a cultural program dedicated to the Year of Tourism between Russia and Italy.
Specially for this exhibition the artist created a number of art pieces which can be joined by the unusual artistic touch. On his paintings the most significant places of cultural history of mankind, e.g. the St. Paul’s Cathedral or Eiffel Tower, are struck with lighting; megalopolises are attacked by UFO; a modern plane is landing in Las Vegas whereas the background is the Sphinx. The curator Gianluca Marziani wrote about the artist: “In the 1990s Cristiano Pintaldi developed the unique artistic method. In his paintings he had been using only three colors: red, green and blue, and a “pixel” as a functional painting unit. Thus, he could imitate future technical process using, however, classical principles of painting. He releases passing images that were generated by television, internet and cinematography and provides them with depth of iconographic images”.
The exhibition is open until the 2nd of March, 2014
