THE PRINCIPALITY OF MONACO HAS CHOSEN THE ITALIAN ARTIST CESARE CATANIA FOR THE ‘TOP MARQUES 2018 ′ EXHIBITION TO BE HELD IN MONTECARLO
AFTER HAVING AMAZED THE CRITICISM AND THE PRESS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD MANY TIMES, AFTER HAVING RECEIVED THE NICKNAME OF “MODERNO LEONARDO DA VINCI” FROM SOME ENGLISH MAGAZINES, THE ITALIAN ARTIST CESARE CAT. TO EXHIBIT IN MONTECARLO THEREFORE, WITH TWO UNIQUE WORKS OF THEIR KIND
The shocking sculpture entitled “The Man Who Does Not See” and the refined and elegant painting entitled ” The Harlequin in the Land of the Giants. “” Man lives blindly in the society that surrounds him …. “. This is the reflection of the artist commenting on his own sculpture, a work of art that literally seems to come out of the canvas.
COMPLETELY DIFFERENT THE STYLE OF THE SECOND WORK, AN OIL PAINTING ON A SURREALIST FOOTPRINT CANVAS THAT REPRESENTS ARLECCHINO INTENT TO RUN ON A SAND CHESS BOARD IN A MUCH BIGGER REALITY THAN HIM.
Also in this case the similarities between the Harlequin, a character so dear to him, are clear to the author, and mankind. During the exhibition there will also be the sculpture entitled “La Bocca dell’Etna”, a contemporary work of art in which the Italian master concretizes his inspiration by demonstrating how it is possible to link materials so distant from each other as steel, silicone , acrylic and natural pigments.
THE THREE WORKS WILL BE VIEWABLE AT THE CESARE CATANIA ART STAND INSIDE THE TOP MARQUES 2018 EXHIBITION EVENT, WHICH WILL BE HELD AT THE GRIMALDI FORUM FROM 19 TO 22 APRIL, DURING THE WEEK OF THE ROLEX MASTERS TENNIS CUP.
