About the Artists

1981 Milan, Italy

El Gato Chimney was born in 1981 in Milan, where he currently lives and works.


He started his career as a self taught artist, developing an early interest in graffiti, which made him pursue a successful journey into street art, that he still cites as one of his ispirations, along with steampunk culture and surrealism.

As the years went by, his art went through some changes, due to the fact that he acquired both new knowl-edge and technical skills, and that brought him to an introspective research to depict immaterial things, such as emotions and inner visions.


His researches range over a wide variety of subjects, such as alchemy, ancient and modern art, magic, mir-abilia, occultism, popular folklore, spiritualism and tribal art.
The artist says that these studies make him feel particularly fond of the artistic movements of the 800s/900s, but his poetics and his vision belong to the 21st century.


If you allow him to take you on a not easily forgettable ride into his work, you will discover a Bosch-like world where fields made of melty pink icing goodness leave place to abandoned carnivals dripping with desolation and rust – a world seemingly unhabitated by humans, even though flying teapots and tiny metal beings call it their home.


Beware, though, as in his art nothing is as it seems and nothing is left to the case: the artist’s goal is to make the beholder think and wonder instead of being a passive observer in front of the umpteenth meaningless painting.

In the end, numbers and symbols might or might not offer you a solution to the enigma, but they surely will make you want to take in every little detail of the dreamy landscapes, bursting with vivid colours and amazingly lively creatures, only waiting to tell you their own version of the story.
