Statement

Marco Piemonte is an artist living and working in London.
He creates the illusion of life, a life where absurd things happen as he considers the absurd one of the answers to life.
The subjects of his paintings often play the impossibilities of life and ironically the failure of the human being trying to pursue them.
He often utilizes animals to mimic our conditions, painting allegories to represent human’s behaviours, fears and other concerns.
Humour appears in his works as nervous reaction to the absurdity of modern life regulated by technologies where everything is perceived in constant rush, in his paintings instead time slows down almost pausing life…He says, ‘It’s like I make portraits of life.’


...when I was a kid in my bedroom I had toys...and I also had a cardboard box and that was my favourite thing. In that box I could create my own games using anything I had: clothes, parts of other toys, tapes, colours, food, plastic, bottles, images from my comics...anything I could find around. Now I am still doing that, I am still playing the same game..painting in that box.
