Max Ferrigno
Artist | Professional | Traditional Art
Max Ferrigno was born in Casale Monferrato on 14th November 1977.
He started work as an interior decorator straight after obtaining his artistic diploma, by doing so he managed to keep a strong link with art. In his little art studio, for thirteen years, shaped the fantasies of his numerous clients. He drew trompe-l'oeil for shops and apartments, backdrops for theatrical agencies, made sets for Gardaland, Eurodisney, Mini Italia, Cow Boy Guest. He travelled a lot. At the same time his first part of his artistic path took shape: a long series of works dedicated to Mexico to Afica and to South America concentrated on 'burro', a donkey that symbolises the renewal of the social, cultural and historical view of the world.
But it was in 2005 that his artistic sensibility received a strong tremor, so strong that it redefined everything he had created up to that moment. He started watching the old Japanese cartoons again, to listen to TV theme tunes. Suddenly the echoes of the childish memory became the font of an explosion of ideas and projects. And this is how the 'popsurrealist' phase of Max Ferrigno began, where the characters of the cartoons, the 'merendine' and the toys of a generation become 'live actors' in his works through a triumph of vivid colours, intense and dissonant. A language that seems to be destined for children but that in reality it is aimed at adults.
What strikes, in fact, is the expressive power that comes through his canvas: emotions, states of mind, smells and flavours.
In November 2010 he exhibited his first important collection in Milan 'Les Sucreries' , a success that called for the attention of many critics and fans of popsurrealism.

grazie per i commenti, amo molto il pop surrealismo e mi piacerebbe poter collaborare con qualche artista che si rifà a questo stile, se vuoi usare qualche mia foto per ispirarti chiedi pure senza problemi. Claudia

Mi farebbe molto piacere.
Ora sto preparando due eventi a Bangkok e Singapore ma al mio rientro lavorero' sulla prossima collezione continuando con il concept dei Freaks Show di fine '800 e mi piacerebbe ispirarmi a qualcosa di tuo.
Complimenti ancora!

quindi lavori a tempo pieno con la tua arte? complimenti... per me è solo un hobby al momento, non sono una professionista, però mi piacerebbe poter esporre qualcosa prima o poi.

Si, ci vivo.
Spero tu riesca ad esporre perché i tuoi lavori sono veramente validi. Mi hanno colpito!
