In the continuous quest for his style, Tiziano Autera disrupts cultural constructs and optical systems, moulding perceptions and experiences of the overall exhibition. Abstaining from the given definitions of art, the artist deliberately mixes unconventional and hierarchical techniques like Cubism, exuding a hitherto unseen sense of nonconformity and deep personal research. At stake is a biological investigation of all that is physical and metaphysical. As he flows into his unique narrative,
he chronicles the individuality of his psychologically charged characters, thoughtfully drawn or otherwise vividly coloured, however always distinct from one another. Quick brush strokes parallel chiaroscuro sketches, and fluid figures accompany dreaming and otherworldly women,
for instance: Reflection. The work portrays a seemingly soft coral divinely contouring a feminine face; her gaze is absent and void, yet she attentively speaks to the audience. Autera often pays homage to the women and the feminine figure; in his artworks, the essence of being alive meets beauty and the authentic roundness of flesh.
He immediately caught my eye because his work would stand out as different from artists I have either worked with or seen in the emerging art scene.
I think he is bringing something new, and it cannot be categorised in the traditional 'figurative' or 'abstract' bracket.
Adele Smejkal, CEO & Founder Artistellar
Enfant prodige, Tiziano Autera (b.1992) received his training in art and craftsmanship through his father, who would carve wooden sculptures, whose inherent references are today a visible legacy in Autera’s oeuvre.
Academically trained in graphic design, later on, he reverts to figurative art to feed his profound desire to shape unprecedented combinations.
Hailing from Switzerland, he already counts on a varied roster of international galleries and numerous side artistic and creative projects.
