Dark Pop Surrealist Painter Marco Rea Boosted In The Contemporary Art World
An unique artist in the world: from the street art to fine art spray painting, he distorts commercial billboards in intriguing artworks
Venice (I-Newswire) February 7, 2013 - Artist Marco Rea signs with Vecchiato Art Galleries for his international promotion
Marco Rea was born in 1975 in Rome, where he works and lives. His artistic research considers two different points of view; Street art and pop Surrealism, keeping his works recognizable and original. He created and uses a technique, which is the spray painting on billboard. “Marco Rea’s work rises from a glossy image, created in order to sell a product, full of messages of desire and fascination, which stir people to material fetishism for mass culture products. Marco removes the product from this image and atmosphere totally changes, the subject is bent to his will, the subject becomes other from himself. His favourite models are women in their intimacy, lost in their thoughts, dreams, mental explorations, caught in their mental spaces.” (from the catalogue “Italian Pop Surrealism”) His artistic inspirations are Bacon, Schiele, Witkin, Bellmer and contemporary Chinese artists, famous authors like Poe and Kafka and Oriental culture, characterized by a void and silence aesthetics. He exhibited his works abroad at Strychnin Gallery (together with Mark Ryden and Ray Caesar), Cell63 Art Gallery (Berlin), Fun House Gallery (Detroit), L’Art de Rien Gallery (Paris), Genuine Artikle Gallery (New York), Kaneko’s Gallery (California), BLOOOM Art Fair (Cologne), in Italy he exhibites at MondoPOP (Rome), Mondo Bizzarro Gallery (Rome), Famiglia Margini Gallery (Milan), Fabrica Fluxus Gallery (Bari) and many others, and his work has been published in Juxtapoz Magazine (USA), Inside Art (Italy), Velvet (Italy), CG (Italy) and many others.
