  • About the work

Acrylic on panel - 2018 circa

Old tram: artwork by the contemporary Pier Luca Bencini who represents a vision of the Grafton Building of Bocconi University of Milan. Thanks to his highly solid painting and dense of color, the artists pays a tribute to the milanese city in combining three elements that characterized it: the new building of Bocconi, flagship of the Athenaeum, an old traditional tram running in front of it on its line, and the banner with the logo “EXPO” alluding to the universal exposition of 2015 which will see Milan as main guest. The tram reflects on the mirror of the building, while around everything is is motionless.

About the Artists

Florence, Italy

Florentine by birth and Milanese since ever, he paints since his adolescence, trying to tell through shapes and colours what he cannot express and spread in its entirety of reality and its mistery, without a word too much dependent from cogency. In a society where everything is dominated, filtered and mediated by digital and virtual, thanks to his activity of surgeon and dermatologist, Bencini still loves manual skill and the gesture of directly immerging and impacting with the material, transforming and molding it. In this sense, he loves being defined an artisan, as his friend Pippo Basile does, and exactly like him he considers his works, which derive from the manual transformation of the sunstance, one of the most sincere Human expression and one of the closest to the divine gesture of creation. Pier Luca Bencini has always conceived arts as a gift.
The proceeds of some of his exhibitions, such as “Oltre, il paesaggio ritrovato”, have been entirely devolved to the support of missionary works in Africa.
