About the Artwork:
Riccardo Nannini’s work is normally presented on large canvases full of characters and details, where what reigns is chaos and it is necessary to look and look again to capture everything that happens on the scene.
For Microvisions 5 he has wanted to focus on some of his characters, presenting them in a more neutral context without renounce to the game of contradictions and irony that characterize the rest of his artistic production.
About the Artist:
Riccardo Nannini a.k.a. Cane (Italy, 1980) studied fashion and design in Milan.
In 2009 his practice shifts to painting. He moves to Barcelona, where he begins collaborating with artists, magazines and underground galleries, as well as making incursions into street art.
Gradually, his pictorial investigation narrows its focus on the conciliation of tradition and contemporaneity, mingling references which range from Renaissance to comics.
Nannini develops a personal language which travels freely between classical painting, folklore and pop culture.
His work reflects the contradictions of our times through situations observed in his day to day, in which an apparently innocuous detail transports us from the anecdotic to the exceptional and absurd.
His works have been exhibited in various individual and collective shows in Europe, Usa, Australia and Taiwan.
