Marcello Malandugno (IT - 1965)
The power of simplicity
Beauty and purity color the brushes of Marcello. In his inspiration, the balance of beauty and purity represents the relations between principles like giving and taking, feminine and masculine energy, spirituality and reality. Marcello pictures purity with the simplicity of the deep south of Italy. Nowhere overdone. What’s on the canvas matters. The strength of minimizing is a true competence he masters naturally. One can always recognize his metaphors, the rhythms and rituals of nature. Shown in dreamy images full of primitive symbols and endless plains. Where man can truly live by just being. Beautiful, pure and simple. His paintings, strictly oil on canvas, are held by leading international collections. Marcello is represented exclusively in the Benelux by The Obsession of Art.
