Success of the Italian artist Cesare Catania in Montecarlo
Success of the artist in Montecarlo Italian Cesare Catania. The latest exhibition of the Italian artist Cesare Catania just ended in the principality of Munich was an international success . After having amazed the critics and the international press several times, after receiving the nickname of “ Modern Leonardo da Vinci ” from the English magazine Luxury News, last week during the Monegasque event the Italian artist presented for the first time in the world a work dedicated to color blind people, unique in its kind. “With this work I wanted to try to overcome the visual barriers that force people with Dalton syndrome to see a different reality from the common one , but no less attractive for this “. Thus explains the Italian artist referring to what inspired him during the creation of his latest sculpture in silicone and steel. And this is how work number 57 entitled “ La Bocca dell’Etna – E Version ” was created and conceived by Cesare Catania, precisely to emphasize the visual characteristics of people suffering from Dalton’s syndrome. For the first time in the world in contemporary art, the artist has enhanced his work shaping it on the visual spectrum of color blind people , which number more than 300 million worldwide. “The same Vicent Van Gogh , undisputed master in the use of color, was color blind ” – Catania continues to explain – and I honestly do not see color blindness as a defect: I would define it plus one feature. There is nothing more fascinating than thinking about your work of art that changes color depending on the point of view from which you observe it. Andy Warhol himself had experimented with his Marilyn Monroe how, despite changing the color palette, the icon of the American myth remained unchanged “. The work of Catania was presented for the first time worldwide in a hot week of events for the principality of Monaco, which also hosted the Boat Show, the most important international fair for luxury yachts and boats. millionaires, and the gala dinner with Prince Albert of Monaco and Leonardo di Caprio. “The phrase ‘Art for everyone’ has a double meaning for me: ‘art addressed to the whole world ‘and’ art considered as such by anyone who observes it ‘, regardless of their cultural, social or even physiological filters. If each of us saw the colors of the world in our own way, we would live in a world without prejudice ”concludes Cesare Catania. During the opening gala evening of the event, Cesare Catania donated one of his works of art to the Power Disease association.
