Art Backers is proud to announce the FIRST Limited Edition of artist Simone Fugazzotto!
”I paint human beings for what we are: as a racistic, stupid, poetic, sick, beautiful and perverse Kind.”
Young Italian artist Simone Fugazzotto incorporates monkey figures into most of his paintings with the intention to reflect human beings.
There is hardly a better comparison of a human than a monkey, but Fugazzotto goes further while using monkey-figure to shift a subject’s point of view.
According to his opinion, art should not be only a mirror of reality or of the artist’s inner world, but should provide its receptors an imaginary glasses through which they can look through. ”Therefore”, he says, ”my monkeys are filled of all the feelings and expressions that you can not find in nature: laziness, apathy, boredom, snobbism and fear of ourselves.”
