Smoothly radiant brushwork characterizes Italian painter Bruno Antonio Malatesta’s beautiful works. His softly pointed strokes apply thick, vibrantly saturated color in concentrated fields, mediated through crystalline, curvaceous shape. These curvilinear, floating forms are Malatesta’s symbols, through which he poetically communes and bonds with the human psyche of people the world over. Color and shape is reconciled and communicated through a richly personal — yet entirely universal — understanding of human interaction and habit across diverse cultures. “My goal is to help people to go deeper into their feelings and emotions, getting lost in the soul language shaped by thousands of generations of human beings who are still communicating with us through the signs that are at the origins of our languages,” says Malatesta. In this, Malatesta gets to the root of human exchange and community, and elegantly eschews the existing embrace of fast, fleeting dialogues and connections with others.
Born in Turin, Italy, Bruno Antonio Malatesta lives and works in Almese, near Turin.
