Unique piece. Techniques: acrylic and pastels on fineart paper

The work is the cover for Gaudio's solo show Welcome to Paradise (14 Sept - 31 Oct '23).

Welcome to Paradise is a fascinating artistic journey into the world transformed by the impact of global warming where the glaciers have melted away raising the sea level while the monuments and skyscrapers of the past emerge from the water, silent witnesses of a civilization that once dominated the Earth. 

The artist's works capture the poignant beauty of this transformation, giving voice to the contrast between the grandeur of human architecture and the power of nature reclaiming its space.

All this becomes the perfect stage for a new reality: a surfer's paradise. 

Imagine surfing the waves that envelop the ancient buildings and leftovers of what was once a bustling city. Imagine water becoming the connecting element between man and his changed environment. Well, by diving into the works the viewer can discover brave surfers turning an apocalypse into an opportunity, defying the new weather conditions.

Welcome to Paradise reworks the boundaries between art, environment and imagination, inviting viewers to reflect on the fragility of our common home and the importance of treating it with care.

Alessandro Di Vicino Gaudio was born in Naples in 1985. He currently lives and works in Milan.

He graduated in 2004 in Painting at the state institute of art "F. Russoli ”of Pisa.

In his paintings he tries to recreate the great upheavals of our time and their influence on mankind. His works, born from the contamination between painting and video, are characterized by the continuous search for movement through the use of videos within the painting.
