All the art pieces are gently provided by Deodato Arte, an historical art gallery based in Milan.

Deodato Arte is a brand that encapsulates different activities such as promotion, project development and artworks selling, all concerning Contemporary Art.

Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the United Kingdom and the United States during the mid- to late-1950s. The movement presented a challenge to traditions of fine art by including imagery from popular and mass culture, such as advertising, comic books and mundane cultural objects.

One of its aims is to use images of popular (as opposed to elitist) culture in art, emphasizing the banal or kitschy elements of any culture, most often through the use of irony. It is also associated with the artists’ use of mechanical means of reproduction or rendering techniques.

In pop art, material is sometimes visually removed from its known context, isolated, or combined with unrelated material.

Pop art is widely interpreted as a reaction to the then-dominant ideas of abstract expressionism, as well as an expansion of those ideas. Due to its utilization of found objects and images, it is similar to Dada.

Pop art and minimalism are considered to be art movements that precede postmodern art, or are some of the earliest examples of postmodern art themselves.

Street art is visual art created in public locations, usually unsanctioned artwork executed outside of the context of traditional art vans. Other terms for this type of art include “independent public art”, “post-graffiti”, and “neon-graffiti”, and is closely related with guerrilla art. Common forms and media include spray paint graffiti, stencil graffiti, wheatpasted poster art, sticker art, street installations, and sculpture. Video projection and yarn bombing have also gained some popularity near the turn of the 21st century.

The exhibition will take place at Officine Milano in Via De Sanctis, 30 and will stand all the week from 17th to 22nd of April.
