Grand Palais in Paris – Roberto Piaia
Roberto Piaia presents his works at the largest international exhibition dedicated to contemporary art in Paris, Art Capitale, finding space from February 14th to the 18th under the glass dome of the Grand Palais.
On this occasion Roberto Piaia exhibits two different versions of the Mudra Sculpture.
White Resin with a black interior, a winning contrast that aesthetically soothes the view and brings a spotlight on the duality of life: purity, with the candor of white that opposes darkness, represented itself by a dark, black color.
In Bronze created using the melted wax technique, where the embracing spiral defines and outlines the soft feminine features; the golden coating on the outside and black on the inside, on top of enhancing the flexible forms of this bronze statue, brings us back to the “Assurfivo” style: unmistakeable painting technique created by Roberto Piaia.
The master Roberto Piaia will have a new year filled with commitments, as it follows a long trail of international successes.
Starting from: Free time Award People of the Year presented to Piaia by the Embassy of the Republic of Bulgaria in Rome. This important recognition is attributed to Piaia not only for the impeccable painting style, but alsofor the innovative idea of the latest creations.
The statues are constructed using Carrara statuary marble, with resin and bronze castings through lost wax processes, and created with thetypical skills of Piaia in which face, hands and feet stand out. This world premier innovation consists in the creation of the body: the structure of the volume is built around a double helix that wraps around itself; with a “full” visual effect in which the shape is underlined through a swirl, while a void appears suddenly, leaving room for more imagination.
Always in Rome, he presented a sculpture made of Carrara marble on the occasion of the Triennale di Arti Visive hosted at the Vittoriano Complex.
Following this, he presented five works, three paintings and two sculptures, in an exhibit set up at the Amsterdam Whitney Gallery, known as one of “the most beautiful Galleries in the Chelsea-New York City area”.
And finally, but no less important, he inaugurated his new studio in a city that welcomed him with all honors: Mindelheim, located in Lower Allgäu, Germany. This location, also Piaia’s residence since 2017, is far from the hustle and bustle of the big city and full of magical historic remains, offering the Artist a perfect environment to better his pictorial talent, while his sculptural talent is better developed in the very heart of Knowledge and sculptural production: Pietrasanta, Italy.
The works in Paris are exhibited at the Salon des Artistes Independent in the Stand Tablinum Cultural Management that has managed the selection of the artists and presents the works of five other masters as well as Piaia:
Mieke Van den Hoogen, Mariangela Bombardieri, Anne Delaby, Gilles Mazan, Maria Mouriadou.
