Michele Castagnetti allows plenty of wit into his work, but he’s serious about the spirit and method wanting his work to be at the same time elegant and off-putting, he makes pictorial and production decisions that defy and yet speak in the language of high art, and that ape popular visual forms. This jaunty parody is part of the cockeyed charm with which Castagnetti has imbued his canvases. Castagnetti has his cake and eats it, too. – Peter Frank
Born in Italy in 1972, Michele Castagnetti spent his formative years in Rome, studied graphic design at the Ateneo Creativo in Milan and received a Bachelor’s Degree of Fine Arts at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Castagnetti’s work has appeared in numerous exhibitions curated by notable curators and critics such as Mat Gleason of Coagula, Peter Frank, senior curator at the Riverside Art Museum and The Los Angeles Times art critic David Pagel.
