Biography

Paolo Gonzato (Busto Arsizio, 1976) is an artist who works in a post-conceptual and procedural context who escapes a precise definition, establishing a playful relationship with the spectator who is involved in his game of masking and unmasking. Gonzato's artistic career goes through a meticulous analysis of the surrounding space, in a physical but also sociological and emotional sense. The ego of the artist is thus to be dissected and applied to a geometric mental grid that becomes the matrix on which to process his own works both belonging to the horizon of contemporary art (paintings, sculptures, collages, installations and performances) or that of functional art, with works that combine the form of design with the poetics of art.
