CRISTIANO PINTALDI

Pintaldi was born in Rome 1970. Grown up in an art lover family of publicists, since 1991 he began to use only the three primary colors, red, green and blue on a black background, placed together in the same way in which the pixels are arranged to give life to ‘picture on the media screens’.

The chosen subjects - who are drawn from popular culture, from television programs, from cartoons, from cult sci-fi films or digital archives from the world wide web. His artworks can be found in public collections as the National Gallery of Modern Art of Rome, the MAXXI Museum of Contemporary Art of the XXI century,the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art (Rome), the VAFStiftung collection at Mart Museum (Trento) and in the Museum of Modern Art in La Spezia, and in many private collections.

Pintaldi has taken part in numerous collective and personal exhibitions. The latest monographs include "Lucid dreams" (2011), curated by Achille Bonito Oliva in the Venice Ex-shipyard, as a side event of the LIV International Biennial Art Exhibition and, in 2014, "Suspended Animation", curated by Gianluca Marziani at the Scientific and Research Museum of the Russian Academy of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg and at the Galleria & Mucciaccia Gallery in Singapore.

In October 2015 an anthology of his was inaugurated at the MACRO in Rome, curated by Stella Santacatterina.
