2000 circa.

Hand retouched silkscreen print and collage on canvas.

This Meloniski silkscreen depicts a pyramidal composition of buildings at the top of which there is a woman playing a flute. Sweet music seems to attract a multitude of colorful butterflies that rise to the left of the subject. In the background, a hilly landscape expands, immersed in a red twilight sky that anticipates a starry night blue. The spiraling red sun on the right, ready to set, gives off warmth and gives balance to the scene. The whole city appears suspended in a dream thanks to the luminous effect of the technique used.

The work is signed by the artist on the lower right.

1943 Villacidro, Italy

Meloniski was born in Villacidro, in Sardinia, in 1943. He is a painter, a sculptor and a ceramist and his distintive trait consist in using many techniques and in the experimentation of different materials.

His works are characterized by a dreamful and fantastic atmosphere: thin shapes fluctuate in nocturnal skies where sparkling stars shine. We can find in his works bright colours and love for uncontaminated nature of his hometown.

Self-taught artist who travels all over Europe until he sets up home in Paris and then in Milan. In French capital he studies ancient masterpieces, modern and contemporary art visiting the great museums.

Meloniski keeps on looking for the truth. His apparently fantastic works hide great metaphores about human beings and his detachment from nature. Even his love for flight is protagonist of his famous retouchés where also fishes and boats plough magic nocturnal seas.
