GIANCARLO MONTUSCHI

Giancarlo Montuschi was born in Faenza in 1952 and his artistic career began when he was still very young. Tuscan by adoption (he has lived and worked in Anghiari since 1976), Montuschi has numerous exhibitions in Italy and abroad to his credit. One can perceive in his work the direct contact with Pop Art breathed in the 1970s and the link with the ceramics of Faenza, the city that gave him birth. Of ceramics in his work, the nostalgia for colour leaks out due to the type of impasto and tonal tones. Painting won him over with the world of fairy tales, medieval bestiaries and then with comic book sagas, in particular that of Flash Gordon. Blue is a colour dear to his heart and the asexual blue figures of conical-hatted Magi in communication with the starry macrocosm stand out in his works like a trademark and recur throughout his production. Today, with the Astro-Pop series, elements from the sci-fi-inspired imagery of the 1930s and 1940s merge into a contemporary landscape borrowed from American cinema. The different outcomes he has arrived at over the course of his 50-year artistic career are today a true, authentic, great wealth. In December 2022, Montuschi began his collaboration with the Galleria d'Arte Piero Della Francesca, a historic contemporary art gallery, which mainly deals with his large-format production, exhibiting works of monumental dimensions such as the 2x2 m and 3x2 m.
