From 21 June to 10 September, the room “Sala del Mosaico” of the Classense Library hosts SANTI MOIX: HANABI FLOWERS OF FIRE.
It’s an artistic intervention by Santi Moix, created within the project “Ascoltare Bellezza”. It sets a perfect dialogue with the sixth-century mosaic work that reigns in the Classense’s room.
The Catalan artist, which has been living for some time in New York, uses a language that he perceives as free extension, a movement that from the inside flows outwards, following the nature’s dynamism. Tireless and cosmopolitan, Moix is today one of the reference figures of New York’s contemporary scene.
On this occasion, he is introduced by another eminent artist: Luca Pignatelli, author of an unrleased work included in the exhibition’s catalogue on sale. Santi Moix (Barcellona, 1960), of Catalan origins, live and works in New York. The inspiration of his paintings comes from several sources: comic books, literature, the great masters of the history of the arts, mainly Spanish art. It’s the nature that surrounds him, however, to be the main focus of his attention.
