Matteo Mezzetta was born in France, he lives and works in Milan.

He has always been interested in the aesthetic and semantic gap, which comes from the transposition from photography to painting, in shades of gray.

“I am looking for an original elaboration of hyper-realistic codes. Therefore, before beginning to create a painting I work on the photographic image. I develop the concept and then I create the set where the pictures will be taken.
The creative process is finalized to create an original and unique scene that is part of my artistic universe. The selected images will represent the most important cores of my imagination” .

Currently Mezzetta is working on Gravity, a series of paintings mixing the attitude of classic still life works, where precious inflatable sculptures convey the idea of ephemeral beauty, with a research that reveal a futuristic vision linked to spatial aesthetics.
