This Pambianchi's work presents a total distortion of concepts, In this artwork we find one of the dearest artist's icons: superheroes. Here the artist puts some characters and symbols that change the reality. Personal vision where the artist play with the observer, doing a series of sacrilegious connections used to laugh with the concept of hero and anti-hero. Pambianchi works on the picture with collage and painting. The 2015 work is unique and it's signed by Pambianchi.

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?
