About Dario Moschetta
I live and work in Italy, in Castelfranco Veneto, near Venice. I am an artist who loves to experiment. I like materials such as paper and canvas and acrylic paint, and I like to mix them in unusual ways, mixing glue and color paper and then meld them with the canvas. I like people, and bodies. I love painting towns, the busy life of the metropolis. I want the finished works resemble those posters you see on the street, all torn and worn out by time. The finished works are rough, irregular, uneven to the touch. In short: lived.
I learned to paint by myself.
I will be featured as Artist of the Day on SAATCHIART.COM

Italian artist, Dario Moschetta is facinated with the effect of time on both physical and mental images. This explains the nature of his pieces and why he has chosen to intentionally 'age' some of them through a process which involves water, sandpaper and chisels.
I'm a city girl through and through. I live in Manchester, right in the heart of the action. Every morning I look out of my apartment at the city spread out before me and my heart does a happy flip. So when it comes to beautifully painted cityscapes I'm pretty much hooked. Which is why I must introduce Italian artist Dario Moschetta - a graphic designer, illustrator - and in this case - a painter. These particular paintings - mainly of New York but some of London - are lovingly created with mixed media, collage and acrylic paint. See more of his stunning work at www.dariomoschetta.com.
selection of works created by Italian artist Dario Moschetta. Paintings in acrylic on canvas that blend and overlap strong brush strokes and creative irregularities. Rapid and instinctive gestures, colors, voids and imperfections that turn into faces, poetic plots depicting the human features into fascinating works of art with unfinished perfection
Un universo fatto di linee veloci, che trasmettono grazia e movimento, e una viva intensità emotiva, condita da colori caldi, pieni, che sembrano raccontare storie. Penetrare nell’opera dell’artista veneto Dario Moschetta significa esperire il significato della bellezza, seguire i passi di chi la ricerca, la immagina e la ritrae su tela. Nudi, ritratti, paesaggi, sketch: lavori diversi, realizzati con tecniche speciali, che integrano il classicismo con il pop, l’aura del passato e la frenesia del presente. Ecco alcuni dei suoi lavori e le sue parole, che ci ha cortesemente concesso in esclusiva per Fools Journal.
Un palimpsesto es un manuscrito que se escribe sobre un soporte (generalmente piel curtida) que previamente tenía un escrito anterior y que ha sido borrado por un raspado de superficie. Aunque Dario Moschetta (http://www.dariomoschetta.com/) define sus pinturas de otra forma, realiza este mismo procedimiento con la particularidad de que lo que produce es una convivencia entre el trabajo previo y el reciente.
Cosa contraddistingue l’opera d’arte da un singolo prodotto?
La Qualità è scomparsa definitivamente in questa nostra realtà?
Dario Moschetta (Castelfranco Veneto TV, 1973) contribuisce a provocare ognuno di questi interrogativi. La mostra, allestita nelle stanze della Galleria Chiarugi, non si presenta formalmente come una personale, sembra piuttosto di entrare in una antica bottega dal fascino sofisticato, capace di stupire sin dal primo sguardo...

Dario Moschetta - HDL Magazine interview:
How old are you? What do you feel when you make art?
I’m 40 years old, so I’m pretty young.
When I’m painting and working to some mixed media I don’t have complex thoughts, I just think about giving the right color, the right shadow and the right light to the artwork. I often stop and take a few steps back to look at what I’ve done, and I look at it very differently compared with the way I observe it as I’m working on it. I think about what I can do to improve it, if I’m going in the right direction, if the artwork I’m creating is better or worse that the last one I made. I don’t think about who’s going to look at it when it’s done, I’m the one who has to be satisfied, I’m the one who must like the final result, otherwise I’ll put it away where I won’t see it for a long time or I’ll throw it away...
