Les Artistes

"La Gioia" october - december 2014 

Born in 1961 in Italy. Lives and works in Milan.

Stefano Arienti’s work is philosophical, vibrant and carries a strong element of compassion. He draws inspiration from the Arte Povera and Conceptual movements. Through minimal gestures like folding, dying, puncturing or sewing and by using printed images and found objects, he transforms everyday objects in an unusual way. In this manner, he subverts the visual clichés of popular culture.
