Lamberto Melina, Born in Lombardy and natural talent, Lamberto Melina has developed his innate qualities from a very young age under the guidance of talented artists. Graduated in philosophy, art director and visual designer, since the early 90s he has been dedicated to art with enthusiasm and growing success, exposing in many personal and collective exhibitions in Italy and abroad. In ’96 he ends a cycle and disappears from the art scene until 2008.
During these years of silence he dedicated himself to the theoretical foundation of his own “artistic action”, experimenting at the same time multiple techniques, from video art to computer art, from material art to photography.
As a conclusion of this conceptual path he reappears in public with an innovative stilema, ontologically powerful and fascinating, becoming in a short time one of the most appreciated artists at national and European level, so much so that at the end of 2009 the prestigious Mondadori cultural magazine “Prometeo” dedicated a long interview to him, in which the artist exposes the philosophical and conceptual path. innovator, ontologically powerful and fascinating, becoming in a short time one of the most appreciated artists at national and European level, so much so that at the end of 2009 the prestigious Mondadori cultural magazine “Prometeo” dedicated a long interview to him, in which the artist exposes the philosophical and design foundations of his new, innovative and revolutionary action.
Since then, Melina has been proposing a new path for contemporary art that moves away from the act/meaning equivalence that so much depletes the current art, sinking full hands into the poietic basin, where symbols create the world and not vice versa, where the intelligence of reality is determined by the potential (emotional, metaphorical, symbolic, consciential) and not from the visible surface, mere virtual representation of the senses. In the last 10 years Melina has exhibited in many important institutional venues (including, in 2012 at the 54th Venice Biennale, S.Andrea al Quirinale and Chiostro degli Agostiniani in Rome, Italian Cultural Institute in Prague, etc.) and museums in Italy and abroad and maintains relationships with many prestigious Italian and foreign galleries. He lives and works in Sarezzo (Bs). (A. Zaina curator, critic and art historian – Brescia)
