IGOMENICO (a.k.a ANTONINO GALLO)
Igomenico's works reflect coherent, in-depth artistic research: his mastery of oil and mixed techniques is clear, along with the use of a visual vocabulary comprising of signs and spellings, abstract and figurative, acidic colours for large backgrounds and small monochrome drawings in pen.
Mindful of the abstract tradition, Igomenico does not restrict himself to obsequiously copying the greats of the past. The lessons of his teachers are understood and identifiable in unintentional references to Mondrian, Miro, Klee and Klimt, from whom the artist adopts the metropolitan vibe of street art, stencils and stickers.
