Argentine born painter Pablo D’Antoni explores two brilliantly rich and elegant mediums: a canvas gray series and mediumtures. The former depicts figures surrounded by a gray emptiness that represents dark pasts, romantic departures, and adventurous change. The latter is a humorous commentary on Classicism as the artist contemporizes his entertainment. Renaissance minstrels hold selfie-sticks, while Dutch peasants snowboard on tables; “humor is one of the best connectors between my work and the viewer.” D'Antoni’s boats, trains and figures showcase the artists ability to jump between real and imagined worlds, juxtaposing his sense of humor with his classical training as a painter. In this body of work, D’Antoni’s multiplicity of styles, and his forms of artistic expression, prevail as the single standard.
Pablo D’Antoni received his BFA and MFA at the San Francisco Art Institute. He continued his studies in Spain, where he received a Ph.D. in Art Restoration and Conservation at the Polytechnic University of Valencia. His work has been shown throughout Argentina, Spain, and the United States. This will be his fourth solo show with Hespe Gallery.
