Marco Battaglini was born in Verona, Italy, 1969. He echoes the anxiety inherent in Western society during the 21st century.
This artist’s work confronts us with an esthetic shock, a style charged with eclecticism and a touch of humor that brings a smile to the spectator’s face while begging questions about the dogma that underlies current artistic and social scenes.
Throughout his artistic career, Battaglini has maintained a complex working-concept of reality, approaching it from its basis in perception and coming into close proximity with the multidimensionality of being; his purpose has been to expose the contradictions intrinsic to human existence while demonstrating the power of imagination through his view of the reality that surrounds us – a reality that sometimes insists on playing tricks on our perceptions.
This is an artist that devotes special attention to the notions of time and space, viewing them as fictitious entities and showing us that their worth and weight in our daily lives are actually quite relative. This modus operandi of snatching reality away and giving it back to us in the form of art gives us the opportunity to see reality from another perspective.
