Italian artist’s Angelo Accardi’s latest exhibition, MISPLACED, connects the art of the past with the art of the present, with colourful, symbolic and layered artworks full of humour and wit.
Artists, characters, and styles from across centuries of art come together in a collection that references history, while remaining contemporary.
Using contrasting references to create ‘opposite poles’ his images use repeated presences of contemporary pop characters linked to mass culture, such as minions, and characters from American Dad! and Family Guy – alongside classical artistic styles.
