Art Madrid'24 – Bruno Pontiroli

Bruno Pontiroli

Francia, 1989

"Bruno Pontiroli is a dreamer. He lives in a cloud in a world based on a different logic. He studied Fine Arts in Paris. He loves images and animals. They constantly reside in his mind. The elimination of physical rules, unnatural postures and its observation of today’s upside-down world inhabit his work. Bruno Pontiroli creates mind-bending explorations of the relationship between humans and animals. From his dreamlike visions, he conjures up surreal and fantastic universes, where centaurs cut off the head of half-human half-horse creatures, over-eager men can embrace large walrus or jump on twisted giraffes and dromedaries fit their cubic-shaped humps into each other. A poetic and absurd ability to make the impossible happen, while a hippopotamus is standing on his tongue... The artist brings to life our childhood dreams and a new look to the world, at the same time. His recognized and exposed works now subvert the biggest international shows, events and exhibitions."
