Artist Statement of Carlo Salomoni

"I love dreaming in the daylight, giving life to a surrealism that brings a smile to your face that, just like a medicine, helps us forget the bad in the world. I produce oil paintings, mixed media and acrylics on canvas, wood, paper, terracotta, as well as china drawings, inks, coloured pencils and graphite on paper.

My painting originated in the metaphysical realm, in surrealism, Fantasy Art, in magic realism. My paintings and illustrations evoke a world of dreams and locations in which reality and fantasy melt together. I love to create cycles of different works to guarantee the originality of each individual piece.
