Turn Me Around IV - Angelo Accardi - Eden Gallery

About The Artwork

“Turn Me Around IV” by Angelo Accardi presents a surreal and visually captivating space where art and pop culture collide. The walls adorned with artworks by iconic artists such as Da Vinci, Takashi Murakami, and Juan Miró create an eclectic gallery atmosphere. Meanwhile, the floor and ceiling covered with Persian rugs provide a luxurious and surreal backdrop. The playful inclusion of Johnny Depp, alongside beloved cartoon characters like the Little Prince, an ostrich, and a chicken, adds a whimsical touch to the scene. Moreover, the upside-down presence of iconic figures like Buzz Lightyear, Garfield, and a Minion on the ceiling adds an extra layer of surrealism and fun to this imaginative composition—Accardi's ability to seamlessly blend high art and popular culture results in thought-provoking and visually engaging artwork.

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.
