Edoardo Tresoldi is an Italian sculptor. He makes near-transparent sculptures using wire mesh, and often positions them in public places. Using his signature wire mesh material, Tresoldi has sculpts landscapes of monumental architectural objects that engage with natural elements. Classical typologies — like colossal columns and dramatic domes — interact with modernist geometries, blending two worlds that exist in both harmony and contrast.

Italian graphic designer Giacomo Carmagnola disagrees with the current state of Glitch Art. He shakes up the field by exchanging digital computation with human intuition. Mixing the occult with the emotional with a dedicated eye he is able to abstract and curate sinister images that give you raw phychological thrills when you look at them. Often with an face replaced by bleeding pixels, the entities tell their story miraculously without an mouth or expression.

Blu thinks EU in Morocco

At a border crossing between Spain (Europe) and Morocco (Africa, for those of you scoring at home), Italian (Europe) artist Blu just completed his newest bit of social criticism with this fantastic mural. Colored and shaped like the European Union flag, and showing huddled masses trying to enter the barbed-wire circle of stars, we think you understand where Mr. Bllu is going with this…

BLU Goes 4-Deep in Buenos Aires

11 605x398 BLU Goes 4 Deep in Buenos Aires Street Art mural buenos aires Blu Argentina

You cannot contain nor stop the capitalistic flood… such is the language of Italian artist Blu for his fourth mural in Buenos Aires, Argentina over the past few months. As BA Street Art describes it, the mural “features a river of money flowing through an enormous city of office blocks and high-rise buildings before engulfing the countryside and tiny houses below.” (Via BA Street Art)

Gusmano Cesaretti @ Roberts & Tilton Gallery

One of the best inclusions in the MOCA “Art in the Streets” exhibition was the photography of Gusmano Cesaretti, a street photography who documented a bunch of amazing cultures in East Los Angeles in the 1970s. The Italian born, LA-based photographer has an exhibition coming up in LA at Roberts & Tilton opening in January 2012, curated by Aaron Rose.

Roberts & Tilton is pleased to announce an exhibition of new and vintage photographs by Los Angeles based artist Gusmano Cesaretti,  curated by Aaron Rose.

The main gallery will feature work from the early period of Cesaretti’s career (1970s) in which he immersed himself in the East Los Angeles culture. His photographs of this era celebrated a sub-culture that had rarely been captured before. The exhibition will include twenty-four vintage, unique prints that have recently been discovered and will be shown for the first time in Los Angeles.

An Italian immigrant who moved to Los Angeles in the 1970s, Cesaretti quickly became fascinated by East Los Angeles. Inspired by the colors, people and graffiti that populated the East Side, he began to capture the vulnerability and uncensored quality of this area. Always honest when shooting his subjects, Cesaretti presents them as they are: violent, loving, confident, scared, full of life. It is this energy and conflict inherent in those who occupy the edges of society that drives his photographic investigations.

Silvio Berlusconi is getting the f-out of here

aaaa evelina manna 9 hot 605x382 Silvio Berlusconi is getting the f out of here silvio berlusconi resign italy evelina manna

We assume the Italian prime minister wants to spend more time with his various mistresses, including model Evelina Manna. Berlusconi vows to resign as PM, because he realizes he has made so much money being a media magnate and PM at the same time, he actually doesn’t need to bother sitting in another discussion with someone like the over-excited Sarkozy.

For real political discourse, go here.
