Atelier Tozzi Amsterdam Event 8-9 September “Mario Loprete hip hop Art Exhibition”
Atelier Tozzi Amsterdam is proud to host the internationally recognized artist….
Short Bio On Mario
Mario was born in 1968 in Catanzaro, where he lives and works. Artistically formed as a self-taught, studying the art history and the great Masters in an aseptic way, without external contaminations.
He graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Catanzaro. He has participated and participates in numerous individual and collective exhibitions, showing his works in France, Greece, England, Holland, Spain and the United States of America.
As a matter of fact today Mario is recognised as a extremely talented artist worldwide, showing a maestry which goes well beyond imagination, expecially in the depiction of the human social issues and shades…not only by means of his hyperealistic images, but especially through the use of commmon/civil materials like concrete….the mixture has impressed me…..you can touch it, feel the third dimension and texture of it….
Hip-Hop Art and Mario
The Hiphop born like a tiny light in the social darknesses, fruit of all kind of experimentations, meant as a way to break down all the “walls of the old streets” in a explicit and direct execution. Until 1998 Loprete painted without precise rules and with the most varied techniques, trying to understand the mixtures and veils of Maestri of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
The artistic work of Loprete is, in fact, foreseen by the experimentation of different techniques. The moment of artistic research ends with the approach of the cement both for the creation of a series of installations, and as a support for their oil paintings.
