About Attilio Calloni

My work is deeply influenced by issues related to ecology and the impact that pollution has on current changes facing the planet that hosts us.
It is also a continuous research regarding the way of representing human emotions and their way of revealing themselves.
It is proposed to develop an understandable language that expresses concepts beyond the aesthetic factor, and that leaves, in the observers, a trace, an emotion that can move consciences, which makes you reflect.

Use daily experiences as a starting point and reconsider the perception of society.

In my works, the influence of a graphic designer training is very evident, especially in sculpture; geometrically minimalist design and propensity to simplify by removing.
Firm intention to regain possession of the instinctive part of ourselves, far from social tendencies and forcing.
Perhaps, for this reason, love for African art, free from contamination; freeing the spirit in a pure, primordial state, diametrically opposed to the imitation of styles that we currently observe.

My artistic path, from materials to disciplines, has always been accompanied by experimentation and the desire to leave behind the works of the past, which also means yesterday, and to reconstruct, in each work, a new analysis of our living identity.


Attilio Calloni was born in Monza on 4/8/1963.
His way of doing art, far from patterns, has already emerged from drawings made as a child.
He attended the state art institute of Monza obtaining the diploma of master of art.
He was a student of the architect and designer AG Fronzoni from whom he acquired the notions of essentiality 'in the forms found in his works.
He has participated in group exhibitions: "artistic-mind and christmas in art.
Every year he participates in a yacht design competition.
Constant experimentation and versatility in the use of techniques: pencil, painting, sculpture and digital drawing.
An absolute artistic totality.
It is a great pleasure to meet, especially in this historical period in which there is a competition for those who shout and stand out more, an artist who speaks only with art, in a low voice, but direct and resolute, pursuing his objectives. Noble achievements, true, tackled on tiptoe, provoking yes, but with sensitivity and knowledge of the cause. Sculptor, Painter, PC Artist, in short, Attilio Calloni perfectly represents a sea of ​​ideas, always on the move, always attentive to current events and what is happening around us. Assimilate everything, and then presents it again in the form of a work of art touching our inner sides of the Soul that we did not know existed.
In many of its artistic expressions, we find the theme of inclination, which can make us think, for example, of the fragility of the human being, in the constant search for a stable point; or again to the perpetual movement, in which we find ourselves sometimes immersed without our knowledge. A dynamism with at the center the idea, the man and his branches. I highly recommend to deepen the knowledge of this great artist.
