Bestiary by Maurizio Olivotto
reveals a fantastic world in which fish can walk, snakes can fly and cats resemble people.
20. 5. – 15. 10. 2023
For the first time in Central Europe, the Italian artist and acclaimed graphic designer, who was a professor at the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence and Macerata for more than 35 years, will present his life’s work. Fantastic creatures in the form of five-legged monsters, dragons and mythical characters will take you beyond the boundaries of common conceptions and, together with the accompanying programme for children, will inspire creativity.
The exquisitely crafted intaglio prints and unique art books blend real and imaginary motifs, combine engraving techniques and experimentation with different materials. Olivotto’s rich imagery refers to mediaeval iconography and reflects his interest in mythology.
