about the artist's works

Lino Lago seeks inspiration in everyday life to create a painting with a great conceptual load. He puts his ironic and critical vision of the different questions that interest his undeniable technical mastery and manages to configure his unmistakable imaginary. His painting is characterized by its diversity, however ideologically his work can be understood as unitary and coherent since everything is born from criticism and a commitment to current reality. In the series Painting on painting and Attacks, he makes a sort of “desacralization” of classic images, so that he dares to intervene paintings of great masters that he reproduces surprisingly with an intense monochrome pictorial layer or drippings of vibrant colours burst into classic stays. In his most recent series entitled Fake Abstract, he plays with the characteristic elements of abstract painting: line and colour, in such a way that under a painting of flat colours you can guess, through lines, famous classical portraits.
