The Retouchè David mi Piace, also represents one of the many characters in the bizarre world painted by Yux. Here we see him reinterpreting Michelangelo's famous David, making fun of contemporary society. In fact, as we can see, the David holds a telephone in his hand, with an almost astonished air; below him is an inscription 'LIKE' with the thumb of the famous social media Facebook.         The artist captures the details, emphasising the more comical side of the character through splashes of bright colour and instinctive somatic features. The whole is framed like an advertising poster, where the colours are bright and the outlines black and bold. The slogans accompanying the image complete the work with amusing puns.

This artwork is part of a series composed of 10 copies, signed at the bottom right and numbered at the bottom left; each one is personalised and retouched by hand by the artist

1970 , Italy

YuX, Pierugo Giorgini, was born in 1970. He’s an artist with a multifaceted personality, who paints and immortalizes life in fanciful forms and shades with a colorful palette taken from exotic journeys. YuX has graduated first in an artistic high school in Pordenone in 1988, then at the Istituto Europeo di Design in 1992. 

He has begun his artistic path in the early nineties. His art is like an intense dialogue with the subjects he paints and comes to life through brushstrokes of acrylic, traits of crayons, shreds of posters, pieces of wood and other recycled materials glued to the canvas.

His technique dresses every artwork with a street-urban context to which YuX belongs to. Every artwork is made by an arrangement of symbolic elements that define the features of the figures but leave them free to express themselves as if they were suspended in the wind of what they communicate. His passion for comics, his studies as an advertisement graphic designer, his continuous research and experimentation, his attention to the greatest Art’s masterpieces have led him to cultivate a personal interpretative ideology and a well recognized personal style that YuX likes to define “Pop Expressionism” This artistic itinerary keeps on evolving and cohabits with contemporary events, it embodies a life suspended between real and abstract in which colors, lines, expressions and movements have a single common denominator: the irony of the Grotesque. 

YuX is a face that multiplies itself in innumerable facets, where every face is a character and every character is the mask of itself. While everybody else is watching !!! Today YuX lives and works in Milan. He keeps on divulging his own artistic message through various "not-conventional" show-events.
