JISBAR “Frida and Diego”, 2021 – mixed media on canvas 146×114 cm
Fascinating and prestigious work of art by JISBAR, museum size and quality.
Franco Angeli work of art depicting the half dollar, one of the most prestigious and famous subjects of the Roman pop artist.
Why does Franco Angeli use a powerful American symbol in his works of art?
On the surface it might seem that the artist, in the spasmodic representation of the half dollar, intended to exalt American power, but the truth is the exact opposite because Angeli’s critique of American culture is evident in one of his first Half Dollars. An X is superimposed on the American icon, making explicit the message of repudiation and removal from that symbol, from the culture of the dollar, from commodification and from everything that is made in the USA.
This canvas by Franco Angeli contains the very history of the Roman artist. The half dollar symbol is repeated several times and in different shades of color, creating a harmonious and fascinating composition.
PREFAB77 “Born to Run” – mixed media on canvas – 100×70 cm
British street artist, Peter Manning, now universally known under the pseudonym of PREFAB77, has an unmistakable style. PREFAB77’s works of art are extraordinary: a mix of different styles, perfectly blended on a single support, create extremely attractive compositions.
PREFAB77’s passion for portraiture and the female form is clearly visible in this wonderful canvas, made with mixed media and particularly bright colors. The protagonist is the woman who, with a magnetic gaze, dominates the composition and releases an intense emotional charge.
