EXPLOSIVE JUXTAPOSITIONS ARTPOPCLASSIC® by Marco Battaglini "Almost everything you see in my work already exists," explains the artist. "All I do is capture all these elements belonging to different times, places and cultures in a work with the aim of expanding the range of possibilities of the viewer, to stimulate his imagination. I have come to the conclusion that IMAGINATION IS EVERYTHING, it is the vehicle that takes us to where we want to be, helps us create our reality and my art wants to be a way to expand the imagination of the observer, a tool to fly beyond the logical structures ". He continues: “I would like to involve the public and take it beyond what is apparent. It is normal to judge a neoclassical work as something 'noble', 'refined', 'elegant' and 'beautiful' and a graffiti on a wall as something 'insignificant', 'indecent', 'vulgar' and 'ugly' ... I want to be the means to expand the perception of things. Through the confrontation-union of different times, places, cultures, languages, ways of seeing reality. “The multiplicity of readings, which combines graffiti, symbols linked to Western culture and elements of pop art in a harmonious amalgam, forces us to rethink the values linked to the reality in which we live, shows the impact that consumer society has in our way of living and thinking. We are not only consumers of products, but also of images, icons and symbolizations that are part of our culture. My work is an invitation to see reality "without blinders", from above the forest, not immersed in a specific context with limited parameters of analysis. I want to create a cultural and semantic clash with a series of contrasts that induce the viewer to become aware of its essence… and to peer into the potential of accessing infinite possibilities”.

Through a subtle interplay of multiple realities overlapping in the chronotope, Battaglini evidences the contradictions in mental models about the temporal contrast (chronological), and the cultural and linguistic barriers. Compositions which at first seem 'logicals', immediately reveal temporal and spatial limitations that are disruptive in the interpretation of reality. Battaglini invites us to think that in today's global village, with the 'democratization' of culture, the evolution of knowledge, information immediacy, immersed in the heterogeneity, the Patchwork Culture forces us to confront with a need understanding beyond our geographical boundaries of time. Probably the uniqueness of the Italian artist Marco Battaglini is to conceptualize the possible coexistence of the ideals of classical beauty with the anti-aesthetic, the combination of the divine and refined with the vulgar, through a composition that can complement different realities in an eternal instant. His research of multidimensionality leads him to overlap different temporal, spatial and cultural realities, where everything seems to make sense… This is ultimately the Battaglini’s purpose: remove barriers that distort the perception of reality.
