Michele Petrelli Contemporary italian artist, describes the modern world through splashes of colour, accurately matched following the nature of colour itself, which settles on objects and reflexes itself through ambiance following the physical laws of light, observing matter in analytic way, but also trascending and abstract it with a personal taste, mere realism. The choice of sequences is permeated by the heart’s vibrations, more than the ones of the mind and contributes, together with tecnique and big size canvas of the artworks, to create an emotional explosion in the observer. The iconografic style is derived from a personal, “luminous” neo-expressionism. The synthesis doesn’t simply affects the strong line of the palette knife, the fast brushwork, or the reduction to monocromy or bicromy. In these “impressions” Petrelli freezes the most inner expressions. Sometimes the subjects look pure and free, sometimes even ugly and gloomy. In this naturalness, without aesthetic patterns, is unveiled the real mood of that person, in that specific instant. The dynamism of the lines highlights this unstoppable succession of continuously evolving states. Frequently the author will hear from their words that “their gaze is hunting” or that “they are alive”…
Petrelli is a story teller too. He loves illustrative language, graphic novels, caricatures etc. He prefers a pencil or the traditional techniques: oil, watercolors, oil pastels or acrylics.

Michele Petrelli descrive il mondo moderno attraverso macchie di colore, abbinate con precisione seguendo la natura del colore stesso che si deposita sugli oggetti. Si prefigge di osservare la materia in modo analitico, ma anche trascendente ed astratto con un gusto personale. La scelta dei tagli è permeata dalle vibrazioni del cuore, più di quelle della mente e contribuisce, insieme alla tecnica a creare un'esplosione emotiva nell'osservatore.
Petrelli è un narratore, ama il linguaggio illustrativo e preferisce le tecniche tradizionali: olio, acquerelli, pastelli ad olio e acrilici.


  • ABOUT

    From psychedelic influences of the celebrity pop-art to refinement of minimalist language, Michele Petrelli is devoted to a personal, "bright" neo-expressionism. Petrelli moves deftly from the creation of realistic design projects, at the cartoon illustrations and caricatures.
    The subjects of his illustrations are grotesque characters are sometimes suspended in the air, others they sink into the depths, others emerge from a tangle of forms, lines of light, dissolving in the abstract.
    Many of his paintings are shown at the Tornby Gallery Bindslev - Danimarca.

    His concepts are made by traditional techniques on canvas, paper or by digital art. Infinite perspectives of mighty architecture or so thin as to be moved by the wind are the backdrop of the intense oneiric storylines.
