INTRUDERS by Tanio Liotta

INTRUDERS is a Bow-ties series made by Pvc and Paper, reproducing 30 Art masterpiece of all time:

the artworks selection in the background of every creation goes from ancients frescos of I century BC to early XX century paintings.

The aim is to renew the meaning of the images, creating a fresh new interaction between them and the small characters who are intruding their space.

The result is an hilarious combination of ancient and modern, in which, this time-travel experiment, tries to revolutionise and updating the original contest of the masterpiece.

Intruders is a graphic folding paper project inspired by famous Art masterpiece, made in 2016 by the Italian artist Tanio Liotta (25 yo from Milan), already famous for his bow-ties, homage to his childhood spent in his grandfather’s tailor shop. He uses them as a canvas, building their shape with different techniques and materials, working on this symbol in order to make small installations in which recreate imaginary worlds taken out from everyday stories, ancient memories and life emotions.
