Marco Pittori, ‘Swimming Pool Pink (framed)’, 2015, Artspace Warehouse

Marco Pittori has always worked with photography. He uses his own or the licensed photographs of others, such as renowned Los Angeles photographer Brad Elterman. "Brad’s photos provide a rare, often raunchy glimpse into a rock and roll history where it seems Brad is always at the right place at the right time, camera ready.” –DiscoSalt. Pittori collects and edits the images, adding additional points of interest throughout the photograph.

The current series of Marco Pittori’s multi-layered photographs are based on Brad Elterman’s iconic images “Behind the Beverly Hills Hotel, 1977”. The motifs are carefully placed and layered, until they reveal a whole new reality. They are set in a new context and transformed with the help of strong colors. Realities that seemed irrevocable ask us to question facts and to rethink again.

Marco Pittori was born 1978. He lives and works in Switzerland. He has been exhibiting internationally since 1999. He studied at the Graphic school in Aarau, Switzerland in stone, gravure, screen and letterpress.

This artwork is matted and framed in a white frame and acrylic glass. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included. $250 shipping within Continental US. Affordable worldwide shipping options available.
