2501

Milan-born artist 2501 works in a wide variety of mediums, including painting, installation, sculpture, photography, and film. Embarked in a quest for blank spaces, 2501 experiments with lines, shapes, and motion in free compositions that show strictness all the while breaking art codes. At the age of 20, he settled in Sao Paulo to teach painting to shantytown children, after studying Cinema and video editing in Milan and Visual Communication at the New Bahaus University of Weimar, Germany. His multidisciplinary approach led him to take on a documentary approach which evolved toward the Nomadic Experiment project, a series of international exhibitions, and a decennial digital archive focused around countercultures, communities, points of view, and experiments all over the world. 2501’s site-specific and socially committed work in constant dialogue with urban topography, mainly takes the form of murals, among which specific mural projects carried on in Los Angeles, Miami, Sao Paulo, Milan, Roma, Detroit, Chicago, Ulan Bator, New York, Atlanta, Kyiv. Always on the move due to a career that leads him to answer the calls of various art institutions and fairs around the world, he took part in numerous public art festivals like O.BRA, Living Walls, ALTrove, Art United Us, Artmossphere Biennale, Walk&Talk, Wabash Arts Corridor, Outdoor, Mural, Traffic Design, Painted the Desert Project. His art and process serve as an investigative conduit between an individual who has absorbed a number of principles from classical art and the application of them in a contemporary environment. He enjoyed many solo shows, among which La Macchina, at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Lissone, On the Brink of Disaster at Wunderkammern Gallery of Rome, See You On The Other Side and Anatomy of Restlessness at Soze Gallery in Los Angeles, Freedom of Choice at Celaya Brothers Gallery in Mexico City. Utilizing an approach that can be both primitive and sophisticated, the repetition of exploratory and evaluative line work is highlighted by 2501’s sensitivity to the relationship of the exacting details of surface and applicant. Equally important are the dynamics of open-air, empty spaces, and established structures or derelict buildings. The symbiotic relationship between positive and negative space is always at play, as each element swaps real estate back and forth.

Alberonero

Alberonero is a designer, painter and sculptor. Born in Lodi (IT) in 1991, at the age of fifteen he started writing poems and experimenting with painting in relationship to the physical space through graffiti technique, playing with letters, shapes and colors. In 2013 he graduated in Interior Design at Politecnico di Milano where he had the chance to merge theory with experience and developed a transversal approach to a creation able to connect thoughts with different disciplines. In 2012 Alberonero started focus on the study of color’s perception and on the research of a code that can minimize the visual language. For six years he intervened in the public space by painting sequences of colors ordered in a geometric grid, as instrument of investigation of the connection between mathematics, poetry and sensation. Since 2017 the interest of the artist moves towards the matter and the creation of devices made of poor materials which are linked to the building and agriculture’s world such as concrete, iron, wood, agricultural nets, but also fabrics, plaster and glass, telling us about a super-natural reality. The practice of construction finds form in these elements, in installations born from a careful listening of the site, by the will to "be place", to erase boundaries between the self and the outside and participate in the space in a poetic way. Alberonero realized installation projects, exhibitions and workshops in Italy and in different Countries all around the world including France, Ukraine, Spain, Poland, Germany, Indonesia, United States and Saudi Arabia.

Ciredz

Roberto Ciredz was born in 1981 on the southeast coast of Sardinia, where nature is strong and almost brutal, and which requires one’s full surrender in order not to suffer from its strength. Yellow, green and blue dominates the island, where winds blow violently, molding shapes and mixing tones. The graphic design of forms and chromatic progressions has thus become a constant in the artist’s work. In time, Ciredz felt the need to develop an active relationship with his land, fascinated by its uninhabited spaces, fragments of the desolate landscape where men’s traces tend to disappear, overwhelmed by the ever-persistent nature. Hence his choice to paint small abstract interventions on uninhabited ruins in the countryside, which become “volumes” in the artist’s intimate dialogue with space. As Ciredz says: I love to think that those actions will be seen only by very few people. Crucial to his activity is his move to Bologna, where he attends the Academy of Fine Arts and specializes in Graphic Arts. For the first time, he finds himself in permanent contact with an industrialized city. The regular presence of cement replaces his familiar rural elements, which survive only in hidden parts of the city. For Ciredz mural surfaces become a place for a shared and non-exclusive painting dialogue. The artist now expresses himself in public spaces, creating large-scale sections of nature on concrete sections. With his paintings he creates a symbolic relationship between the aesthetic components of the works and the surroundings in which they are placed; the same applies to his sculptures through his specific choice and combination of materials.

Giorgio Bartocci

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. . . . Diviso tra urban art e product design, Giorgio Bartocci si fa portavoce semi-inconsapevole di una tensione creativa che scaturisce dai costanti input della società contemporanea. Sempre impegnato nella sua interazione figurativa tra le complesse strutture urbane e i loro contesti sociali, su pareti e tele Giorgio ricrea una simbolica sintesi delle surreali routine da 'modernità liquida' che ci circondano. Nelle sue opere a tratti astratte - da decodificare - personaggi umanoidi a mo' di 'primitivi del futuro' fluttuano in balìa di incontri-scontri fra scenari stratificati e realtà multisfaccettate. Sfumature, sovrapposizioni, sottolivelli, silhouette, segni e sintomi non sono mai casuali. La tensione cui dà forma l'artista è la stessa tensione in cui ognuno ristagna; una tensione creativa che in Bartocci dà i suoi frutti grazie a un'iconografia personalissima, evocativa e intima come un desiderio proibito". Giorgio Bartocci ha studiato progettazione grafica e comunicazione visiva all'I.S.I.A. di Urbino, ha realizzato numerosi progetti di visual-design, esposizioni e live-performance così come commissioni per enti privati e istituzioni pubbliche. Attualmente vive e lavora a Milano.

TELLAS

Tellas was born in 1985 in Cagliari, Sardinia. His artistic journey begins in the harsh lands where he grew up. His work is a personal and intimate vision of the natural elements defining the landscape around him. Each piece is the result of a meditative process combining spatial qualities, shapes, and species of the surrounding environment. He expresses his style through various means. His use of drawing, painting, printing techniques, installations, and audio-video production confirms his aim to create and experiment with different art forms. He participated in many international events. Among the most remarkable there are the La Tour Paris Project, 2013, considered one of the most innovative contemporary art projects worldwide, and Artmossphere, the first Street Art Biennale held in Moscow in 2014, featuring 70 artists from all over the world. In 2015 his work appeared in The Urban Contemporary Art Guide, edited by the Graffiti Art Magazine, where he ranked amongst the world’s best 100 emerging artists of 2015. The same year he completed an extensive public artwork in Cagliari, the Italian Capital of Culture back then. In Rome, he took part in Here, Now, the sixth edition of the city’s Outdoor Festival, while his personal show Clima Estremo was held at Wunderkammern Gallery. The following year he completed several important public artworks in Spain, Finland, and Australia, respectively in Madrid, Helsinki, Albany, and Perth. In 2017 he was in Australia again, working on the mural The Barrier in Townsville, Queensland. Later that year, this piece inspired his exhibition Tropico, held at the Magma Gallery, Bologna. Again in Bologna, in 2019, he exhibited his solo exhibition "Lago" with a new body of works curated by the Magma Gallery. In 2019, together with the Press Press editions, he published "notes" a collection of 180 drawings in a limited edition of only 300 copies. Since 2019 he has confirmed the collaboration with The Jaunt, an important international organization that represents artists from all over the world, involving them in large-scale outdoor projects, institutional exhibitions, and works productions. With The Jaunt, Tellas exhibited in San Francisco at the Legion Project Art Gallery, then in Amsterdam in 2021 at the STRAAT Museum on the occasion of the solo exhibition “Out There Somewhere”.  In 2020 he was invited by Paratissima Art Fair to create a work on a large surface that covers the courtyard of the Centro d'Arte Contemporanea Artiglieria, on the occasion of its reopening in Turin, in the circuit of the important exhibition of Artissima. In addition to Palermo, Rome, and other Italian cities, the latest works can be found in Atlanta (USA), Klaipeda (Lithuania), Delhi (India), Montreal (Canada), and Kaohsiung (Taiwan), France, Ireland, and Spain. His artistic production also includes significant partnerships with important Italian fashion brands, including Ferragamo and Marni. In particular, the multiple collaborations with Marni resulted in the documentary A grande terra do Sertão, presented at the 56th Venice Biennale.
