Italian artist Giuseppe Veneziano is a painter, focusing on political and controversial themes with a twist of satire through the use of cartoon characters, famous pop figures and politicians.
He has been described as one of the greatest exponents of “Italian New Pop” and of the group “Italian Newbrow”. As described by Ivan Quaroni, one of the critics who has followed Veneziano’s career:
“Today, I can say that Giuseppe Veneziano is one of the most important artists of our generation. The only one who has been able to overcome the elitist boundaries of the art system, to be understood by a wider but no less sensitive to beauty, public.”
