About the Artist
Mattia Barbieri (b.1985, Italy) is an Italian visual artist whose works explore the traditions of art history through a contemporary lens. While relatively small in size, Mattia's works are loaded with layers upon layers of visual information. The aftermath is a picture so dense with reference that it cannot hold onto a single idea or message for very long, presented by elements and symbols that are disconnected and compete with each other. Mattia offers insight on human experience in a digital world where fragmented and ever-changing computer screens are forming our perceptions of reality and each other. Mattia lives and works in Milan, Italy.
