About the Artist
David Serpetti (b.1990, Italy) explores three main elements through his artistic practice. His works evolve around levels of intensity derived from notions of the Hero,the Sculpture and the Beast. The arch of many myths depict the defeat of the beast by the hero. According to Carl G. Jung, freedom is best achieved when one conquers the shadow and accepts it. The prominence of image-sharing platforms, plays an important role in David's research. By depicting the contrast between unique physical forms that has been devaluated in modern society, David is able to investigate its relationship to mass shared imagery currently shaping the mainstream concepts of beauty and aesthetics. David lives and works in l'Aquila, Italy.
