PAOLO DA SAN LORENZO

An explosion of shapes and colors to celebrate the activity of a great artist

Paolo da San Lorenzo is and always has been an eclectic artist. His artistic life began first as a writer and poet, has found its ultimate expression in painting, creative synthesis of all his inner world. Gave vent to his creativity through creations, often provocative that exude moods of being restless, irreverent and disinclined to accept the gray day. A man always in search of an impact with his life, it touches you, always renew in him that ‘enthusiasm has been and is the source of inspiration: painting. Art is not limited to the creation of a few repetitive patterns, but it moves and is constantly renewed. Use of color, lying apparently chaotic and random, gave birth to many cycles of paintings.

When the performances to dominate the picture is rather than color, often puts the center of his work what he sees as the engine of the world: women. But even that does so in a quite bizarre and original repository of all evil and the good of the world. He distorts reality with an exaggerated representation of a female universe of images shocking faces sweet but more often hieratic, small heads, mouths True, long necks, huge breasts.

Exaggerated depictions?

Desire to impress, or part of a living?


Maybe both. But it is certain that an artist so instinctive and straightforward as Paul from San Lorenzo, whether figurative or informal picture, both in the sign of color, always send pieces of itself, its emotions and its contradictions.
