Ostriches Meeting - Papercut  - Angelo Accardi - Eden Gallery

About The Artwork

“Ostriches Meeting” by Angelo Accardi is a captivating papercut masterpiece that immerses its audience in a surreal and eclectic realm where art converges in unexpected ways. The room within the artwork serves as a visual spectacle, adorned with a diverse array of artworks encompassing the styles of prominent artists such as Modigliani and Lichtenstein. This fusion of artistic influences creates a visually stimulating and harmonious environment. Adding a whimsical touch, three striking pink ostriches assume the spotlight, providing a charming contrast to the traditional art pieces adorning the walls. The presence of Bart Simpson in this eclectic gathering infuses a contemporary and playful dimension into the composition, bridging the gap between classic and modern art. "Ostriches Meeting" invites viewers to ponder the harmonious coexistence of disparate artistic worlds within the confines of a single room, all expertly brought to life through Accardi's meticulous papercut technique.

About The Artist

Originally from a small town in the south of Italy Angelo Accardi moved to Napoli to study fine arts at the Art Academy of Naples. Shortly after, in the early 90s, he set up his personal studio close to his childhood home to embark on his pursuit of painting and sculpture. In the course of his artistic development, Accardi has been on a constant search for new sensations using mixed media to depict figures against differing social backgrounds.

Accardi’s debut on the art scene was strongly characterized by what in Italian art is referred to as “figura,” a representation of the human body, as well as by pictorial and symbolic art. His focus is on the study of humankind and the space we inhabit. Accardi draws from this focus in every one of his collections as he illustrates surreal visions of everyday life under realistic backdrops of urban landscapes.

The cycle of works called Human Collection depicted on an attenuated atmosphere, suggesting the softness of cotton wool – where the figures are masterfully veiled as if by a sheath of moistness – marks a fundamental passage in his artistic development. Ironic and surrealistic, Accardi’s unique perspective and Avant-Garde style has exhibited at galleries as well as several solo and group exhibitions worldwide.

In the last three decades, Accardis’ artistic path led him to contemplate social representations through collections like MisplacedHuman Collection, and Blend. These collections reveal the contradictions in every day, working with commonplace objects and backdrops making the created scene more relatable. Using humor, symbolism, and tributes to famed artists before him Accardi represents culture, history, and even a prediction of the future.
