Divided between urban art and product design, Giorgio Bartocci acts as a semi-aware mouthpiece for the outcomes originated by contemporary society’s constant inputs.
Always busy in his figurative interplay of the complex urban structures and their social matters, on walls and canvases, Giorgio re-creates a symbolic synthesis of the surreal liquid modernity’s habits around us.
In his abstract artworks in places – to be decoded – humanoid characters like ‘future primitives’ float at the mercy of encounters-clashes between stratified scenarios and multifaceted realities. Shades, superimpositions, sub-layers, silhouettes, signs, and signals are never left to chance.
That tension the artist shapes is the same tension we all got stuck in; a creative tension which enriches Bartocci’s artworks with a very personal iconography, evocative and intimate as a forbidden desire”.
Giorgio Bartocci studied graphic planning and visual communication at the I.S.I.A. Institute, in Urbino, he realized many visual-design projects, art shows, and tasks for private authorities as well as for public institutions.
Currently, he works and lives in Milan.
