Piccola Città (Small Town)





40 x 40 cm
16 x 15.75 in







 Silkscreen and collage retouched by hand, circa 2020

An architectural complex resting on a curved surface stretches upwards, as if reaching up to touch the cobalt blue sky dotted with stars. Behind the domes of the buildings, the outline of a bright crescent can be seen. The natural points of light from the stars recall the illuminated windows of the buildings below and help brighten the dark night. The small town is spread over soft flowering hills where the artificial and the natural come together harmoniously. Extremely dear to Meloniski from Villacidro, the nocturnal is often the context of his dreamlike and fantastic scenes. Always an experimenter with various different techniques, Meloniski also combines different types of three-dimensional inserts in this work, thus creating an alternation of plastic and dynamic surfaces. 

The work is signed by the artist in the lower right-hand corner and the artist's stamp can be found in the lower left-hand corner. 

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.
