LODOLA & ANDY

Marco Lodola & Andy

From 19/05/2012 To 28/07/2012

Lodola and Andy, a project that is a true multisensory and multidisciplinary event, focussing on the work of Marco Lodola and Andy, connected by friendship and by an innate neo-pop and futurist talent. This synergy inspires the works in the exhibition: the celebrated light sculptures by Marco Lodola intertwining with Andy’s evoking canvases and design objects. Continuing along the long path of figurative art with the tools of the so called “new media”, the new means of visual art: light, colour, movement and the metropolitan night-scape.
