BARTEU makes the great international Art collectors fall in love

The emerging artist fascinate big names of art with his Summer Show 2020

The emerging artist Filippo Citterio also know as BARTEU is presenting a selection of his abstract paintings in his first 3D exhibition which can be explored until 21 August this year from his website. After careful selection, viewers will be able to walk through the virtual space and discover his style which is born from a unique technique that juxtaposes action painting and Flair Bartending.

Citterio combines the art of painting with his experience as a bartender, a profession to which he devoted himself for 10 years in the Navigli area, a very touristic zone. His curious process consists of placing the acrylics in a bottle and through rapid and intense movements, capturing the colors on the painting, which requires great skill. This leads him to create a canvas that unfolds within a fixed frame like the static edge of a painting. As a result, the final result of each work is always different and unpredictable so that each one is unique and unrepeatable.

We could also consider his art as a convergence between painting and the spirit of the urban world. Citterio introduces into his creative process a technique belonging to another universe, linked to nighttime experiences in crowded centers. But in addition, in some of his works, he includes the use of stencil, generally associated with street art, to represent different figures. Vivid colors are also a personal stamp and are characterized by the luminosity they generate. All these elements invite people to take a moment and contemplate the vibrant and fascinating composition in the midst of the visual turmoil in which we are immersed daily.

Each painting is a way of capturing the instant of intense action by the artist. Although his body is not explicitly visible, the trace of physical movement is permanently exposed in the work. In this way, Citterio expresses himself through the pictorial plane, the gesture, and the corporal expression reflecting the dynamism of his personality. In his works, the materiality of the painting as a surface and the formal elements are also enhanced. The energetic and gestural character of his style can be related to the abstract expressionism of the movement of Jackson Pollock and Shozo Shimamoto and even to the body paintings of Yves Klein, both as reference points within abstract and action painting.

The artist has transformed his practice as a bartender into this innovative technique that serves as a breath of fresh air within contemporary practices. He appealed to experimental creativity and found a way to manifest his freedom and the spontaneity of creation. The production process is then conceived as a performative act in which painting is the documentary proof of it and the work of art at the same time. Today he is the only one who uses this technique for artistic representation.

Filippo Citterio (b. 1987) based in Paris, was born and raised in the city of Milan, Italy, where he worked as a bartender. Due to his ability to mix easily with people, he has become familiar with various figures in the art world. From an early age, he has been attracted to urban culture, particularly to street art and hip hop. In 2017, Citterio moved to a small village in the French countryside near Paris to continue his career as a bartender. This has allowed him to have enough space to carry out his work.  Citterio prefers not to be pigeonholed into a single style so he prefers to call himself a versatile creator and designer capable of adapting to people's desires but with new and innovative ideas.

History of Art Timeline

The historical past of art is usually told as a chronology of masterpieces created during each civilization. It can thus be framed as a narrative of high culture, epitomized by the Wonders of the World. On any other hand, vernacular art expressions can even be integrated into art historic narratives, called folk arts or craft. The more intently that an art historian engages with these latter sorts of low culture, the much more likely it is that they will determine their work as analyzing visual culture or cloth culture, or as contributing to fields associated with art historical past, akin to anthropology or archaeology. In the latter cases, art gadgets may be called archeological artifacts. Surviving art from this era comprises small carvings in stone or bone and cave painting. The first traces of human-made gadgets appeared in southern Africa, the Western Mediterranean, Central and Eastern Europe Adriatic Sea, Siberia Baikal Lake, India, and Australia. These first traces are general…

How to Show Art Work when the Gallery Says No Thanks

There are places in the town where you live where you can show your artwork when the big gallery you solicited said, "No, thanks."
Other artists may need to find venues other than galleries to show their artworks as well. Visual artists living in art-rich communities where there is a lot of local competition will need to get creative about display opportunities.

Or on the other hand, in towns without large art venues, it is important for artists to find smaller and less obvious places to show your art.

How to Show Art Work When The Gallery Says No Thanks

1. Show Where You Go

The most successful approach to finding a place in your town to display your artwork is to solicit a place that you go to frequently. Make a list of all the places you go to each day, each week, and each month.

Make a special trip, or the next time you visit note if the establishment currently exhibits any artwork, if it is local, and if it is for sale.

Also note if they have available wall space where a…

‘The Painter and the Thief’ Review: The Art of Healing (and Vice Versa)

The Painter and the Thief, Benjamin Ree's documentary on a curious friendship, starts with a crime. The Czech artist Barbora Kysilkova is exhibiting her work in an Oslo gallery — she's recently moved to Norway to live with her husband — when two paintings are stolen. They are worth roughly 20,000 euros together; one of them, "Swan Song," is considered to be her masterpiece. Surveillance footage captures a duo entering the building through a back door and exiting with two rolled-up canvases. The culprits are later identified and caught. During a hearing, Kysilkova approaches one of the accused. His name is Karl Bertil-Nordland. Why did you pick those two particular paintings to steal, she inquires. "Because they were beautiful," he replies.Ree has said that he had come across the case when he was researching the high rate of art theft in his the Scandinavian country, and had originally envisioned doing a short piece on the what, where and why of it all.
