Skiri

Andrea Schirinzi, born in 1979, aka “Skiri”, is a Milanese artist of international scope.
Rebel and nonconformist.
Iconic and ironic.
L’artista utilizza nel suo lavoro svariati linguaggi di tipo materiale e concettuale, attraverso i quali inventa e rielabora nuovi usi per foto, immagini pubblicitarie e fumetti. Skiri opera sapientemente una sorta di editing, lavorando con soggetti che sono già in circolazione sul mercato culturale, riconoscibili e oramai incastonasti nella cultura della società di massa. Il risultato sono opere di immediata comprensione e al contempo estraniamento, dai tratti umoristici e provocatori.
Not only. In the artist's works, you can breathe that whole sphere of the world of Action Painting; Skiri, to play and have fun all the way, adds and gives the real touch of an artist, almost as if it were his signature, a sketch of paint, dense and material, spontaneous and aggressive.
The artist plays and enjoys mixing and recomposing languages ​​and imaginaries.
It changes and recreates, as a DJ takes and reuses original materials from different contexts and scenarios, to give life to new masterpieces.
As the French art critic Nicolas Bourriaud writes, in his illuminating Postproduction: “The concepts of originality and creation vanish in a cultural landscape dominated by new figures such as the DJ and the programmer, both capable of selecting cultural objects and including them in new contexts. "
The world of Skiri is the fascinating decontextualization and reworking of what we thought we knew. His trial proposes an interrogative vision - never predictable or banal - to the attentive and intrigued observer.
Così, con maestria e sagacia, l’artista interpreta e fa suoi i più iconici e importanti “simboli” del Novecento, dando origine al seducente e intrigante “Iconic Pop”.
