Anabasis of the Cosmic Ulysses: silkscreen print by contemporary master Meloniski from Villacidro. Under an emerald green sky, an anthropomorphic figurine rides a colorful crescent moon, which the artist transforms with a few strokes into a stylized bird. The skirt of this fantastical coachman is composed of three fragments of trimmings. In this work the artist depicts a glittering metropolis, populated by dense buildings from which he invites us to escape by climbing on the back of the moon transformed into a bird. Always an experimenter with various and different techniques, Meloniski also combines traditional painting and different kinds of three-dimensional inserts in this work, thus creating an alternation of plastic and dynamic surfaces.

The work is stamped and numbered 76/125 at lower left and is signed by the artist at 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.
