The artwork represents a portrait of Curly Top (Shirley Temple). The frame is modified by the artist's hand, which inserts elements and phrases that distort the original image. Indeed, things that make the work original are the pungent irony and sarcasm with which he mocks the subject and underlines his decadent character. The details, created by collage, that captured immediatly our attention are the horror mouth and the eye, inspired by David Bowie's one. For the realization of the piece of art he uses the collage technique and different materials (oil, resins, acrylic, pencils and chalk) that make the work refined and elegant. The result is a deformed image, outcome of an unlikely vision and a meticulous technique.

The work is signed in the lower right corner. 

1969 Ostellato di Ferrara, Italy

Enrico Pambianchi was born at Ostellato di Ferrara in 1969. He is a self-taught, young and eclectic artist who tries many techniques and styles, using different materials.

At the beginning fe was a figurative painter inspirated by classical art and overall by the art of Wainer Vaccari and Remo Brindisi. From 2000he changes his style: at first he experiment with the informal and abstract painting, at last he is an informal figurative artist who works with mixed techniques.

His favourite subjects are protagonists of comics and historical personalities: from Captain America to Steve Rogers and Frankenstein (the modern "Prometeus" for Pambianchi). He revisits masterpieces by great Spanish masters like Rembrandt and Velazquez and he also works on movie sets by Michelangelo Antonioni.

He is specialized in collages. He uses resin, oil, liquefied plastic, engraving, pastel. He starts from a photographic picture and he divides it into squares as though he had to do a prospective work. Then he revisits the subject with painting, cutting newspapers, essential notes on the board of canvas which help observants to understand the ironic and sarcastic meaning of the work. 

He defines his style "Iperrealismo Visionario" because he represents historical and modern icons or disquieting personality of pop culture who are looking for release. Popular subjects who recover peace and calm through a great irony which separates them from their distressing nature.

Some works of him are conserved in private collections (Rina Cavallini - Sgarbi's mother and an important collector of Florence) and at the Civic Gallery of Ferrara.

"May Frankenstein wear bermuda shorts with rose flowers to redeem himself? May Mickey Mouse represent Schutzstaffel of Hitler? May San Sebastiano martyrdom by Mantegna happen in Lakehurst (New Jersey) under plumbean skies? May Captain America (Steve Rogers) spare the tagic event of LZ 129 Hindenburg? Have you ever seen "Las Meninas" by Diego Velazquez crying blood?
