Lot 47 - Orlando Marosini - Neighbourhood Watch
Acrylic, Crayon and Colour Pencil on Paper
A6 (15x10cm) Original Artwork
Signed on Verso
Frantic energy predicated on a desire for energy exchange between painter and viewer, liberal use of colour and crowded space, are signatures of Orlando Marosini’s mixed media works. Inspired by modern artists such as Jean-Michel Basquiat, George Condo, and Basquiat’s own inspiration, Willem de Kooning, symbolism and abstraction are ever present components of Marosini’s art. The almost tangibly familiar aspects of the unknown are of particular interest to the artist, whose excitement at the possibility of illustrating these parallels directly impacts his inclination to use characters as vehicles for emotions.
Orlando Marosini is a self-taught emerging artist based in Zurich, Switzerland, born into an artist- collector family in Budapest. Marosini's love for the arts gravitated him into the artworld, first through working for galleries he would study the works of many of the 21st century master artists. Ever since he found his calling and channel through which he can express himself and his energy, through visual art.
