Homage to Fortunato Depero (March 30, 1892 – November 29, 1960) | Italian futurist painter, writer, sculptor, and graphic designer

Coexist, in an ideal sharing of roles and thoughts, create and give dignity to everything that escapes a hasty glance. All this can be found in the work, Tribute to Depero, by Stefano Bressani.  
The reinterpretation of the famous work "Pupazzo che beve il Campari Soda" is now dressed in fabric and adorned by the masterful hand of its author. It now seems like a ripe fruit, dazzling in its colors, and playful as in a mirror without a wrinkle but made deeper by his story. Work that is both inner and outer to itself, like an inverted perspective, everything is there, at hand, and everything happens in the present. Distant authors, in time and space, who with their vein of madness and infinite faith in the future know how to make certain works an enchantment to come, they have traveled different paths, often far away, but shared in that mysterious and enchanted aura which, only in art, finds appearance and voice. (Robert Phillips, curator)

Artwork selected and included in the official program of Milano Design Week 2021 ( 4 - 10 September)

1973 Pavia, Italy

Stefano Bressani was born in Pavia, a city where he grows and lives and where he refines his sensitivity for beauty. Although always remaining in a separate position with respect to contemporary artistic currents, his early works reveal a language oriented towards reducing the interpretation of the subject to a few signs, aimed at a radical synthesis, composed of rapid lines, of the figure, allowing them, in order to develop a unique and personal artistic language, unique and personal. Works that if on the one hand suffer the fascination of the dominant informal current, on the other never remain "entrapped" by it. carrying within himself a deep desire towards the figurative in a representation brought to the limits and that will behave over the years to his stylistic mark. Compositions where the path of life and the artist's impulse to create are indistinguishable. Creator and founder of what he calls "Art Tailoring" he is the discoverer of a new way of expression where High Craftsmanship and Art merge together, in a synthesis deeply connected to his hard-working land of origin and the path of life undertaken and performed with the sobriety and competence that distinguish those who have not arrived in art through academies or contests but have conducted their studies by observing, interpreting and rendering, with sincerity and creativity, the story of art as the story of life. All Bressani's work contains in itself emotion and reason, passion and rigour, even when the theme is apparently playful as in his colourful architectural visions “SKULTOCITY”, his bucolic fantasy has become a trademark “MALIUMBAS ©” or the multi-handed portrait cycles, a true photographic biography, "SB PORTRAITS". Of extreme conceptuality, but also evidence, full of a disturbing foreknowledge of an existing and coming social sickness, are his works linked to the cycle "KAOTIKA WITHOUT TIME", where the colour disappears leaving space only for black and white, producing spells of full and empty spaces, shadows and lights, restless thoughts reordered in a ended space. Sculptures that incarnate a solid vision of collaborative reality with the business, social and artistic world. His work has found a way to compare with the most diverse aspects of social creativity as in "FOOD_". where we find synergies with well known chefs or his collaborations with the world of footwear and fashion in general by interpenetrating his personal artistic vision to the author's design. His works are exhibited in prestigious collections in Italy and abroad and have participated in major art exhibitiotions.
