Studio 21 Tattoo & Art Gallery introduces a project dedicated to "terrible children." The essential idea is childhood considered as an universal theme, an age that everyone went through and that for everybody has been a fundamental passage, that has left a strong mark in our lives. For many adults childhood is almost a displayed mental state, wanting to hang on to it at any price so that they don’t let slip away the natural essence of things and to escape the superstructures often imposed by the adulthood.
To such point that is a very recurring topic in the artistic world of pop surrealism that could even be almost the emblem of it, the childhood is triumphantly welcomed and also brought out by Studio 21.
Our main interest is to stress on terrible children, frightening children, almost small extraterrestrial ones. Are they observing our world from another time, from another space, with an enigmatic or lost look? Accusatory or polemic? Often disillusioned?
When we are in front of them it seems that they question us speechless, as if we were in front of a mirror. What does this vision raise in the spectator?
A mirror is undoubtedly an invitation to reflect.
The artist in this case has the privilege and the freedom to invent to stimulate the spectator’s reflection in some directions.
The artists taking part at the Florence Tattoo convention's exposition are:
MARK RYDEN,RON ENGLISH, MATTEW PRICE,ALBERTO CORRADI, MISS SALOPETTE (MERY SINATRA) ,VALENTINA ZUMMO,ANIA TOMICKA,FABIO MORO (MOROF),OHMYDOLLS,YARI DI GIAMPIETROGROZDANA TILOTTA,LUISA MONTALTO,GERLANDA DI FRANCIA,DIAVU',ERICA CALARDO,PELIN SANTILLI + SASHA PROSPERI.
