Born in 1983, Andrea Casciu graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts in Sassari. Lives and works in Bologna.
Through the survey of small mutations that time work on the body, Andrea Casciu deepens introspective analysis mediated design, studying the relationship of man with his own image. Deftly maneuvering in the action space of the self, the artist unleashes a dual trigger empathetic. In his works transpires the desire to empathize, to enter, but always on tiptoe, in the innermost core of the people. At the same time, each person can perceive themselves in the iconic faces he paints, in a game that challenges fades general anesthesia in the world in which we live. Changes in Andrea’s face, appearing in the streets, pushing us to consider its murals as if they were mirrors, to confront our own reflection, but also with that of a planetary ego, shared and expanded. A subversion of everyday life addressed in an ironic way, the thin line that separates the individual and the multitude.
