Pop Art is an art movement born in the United Kingdom and the United States in the late 1950s and early 1960s.
This movement is an expression of society and of the collective imagination, and it is an art aimed at the mass and not at the single collective.
It is so called because it derives from the English term "popular art", always ready to look at and assimilate stimuli coming from external society.
Antonio Murgia was born in 1956 in
Sardinia, Italy. He studied arts and
cinematography. He lived and works in North Italy for many years, currently he
is living in Cagliari. He is an extremely
versatile artist and his extraordinary pictorial and creative ability leads him
to experiment always with new expressive languages.
The recent works of the "Oros Project" cycle are a powerful set of figuration and
abstraction, colours and concepts, expressionism and pop. Many italian and
international galleries are currently showing it.
It’s his way of looking around that
makes him fully understand two of the key concepts describing our world: ORder and chaOS. These two ideas may apparently seem conflicting,
actually they are two coexistingaspects.
They live one next to the other in the human soul too. (M.G.Melandri art
“The art of Antonio Murgia takes inspiration from
Pop.” In the Pop art language, objects and
shapes of daily life are emphasized because they are isolated and separated
from their original context. And yet Murgia, in this process, channels romantic
expressive intensiveness to his works. The matter is moving, the vibrant brush
stroke and the colour prevail with all of their sensual and frantic power. The
multiple colours seem to speak, act, record the tones of emotions to become
supporters of a private and deep expressiveness. Through great colour bounces
and softened shades, the faces are part of a scene reminiscent of the
subconscious. The look is dominated by the firmness of the eyes that become
languid and seem to project themselves into another dimension, towards an
absolutely inner universe. In the works by Antonio Murgia, the colour
annihilates the conscious personality of its shapes, resulting in the
prevalence of subconscious personality made of feelings and thoughts. It is the
individual that belongs to the crowd and the artist makes escape from his own
context to meet him in an inner state, moving from the world of the spirit to
the world of art.(M. Micello art
