King Creole

Examplary XXXVII/L. Complete edition: L (in Roman numerals) + 125 copies (in Arabic numerals) + 20 P.A. The work is numbered and hand signed by the artist with embossed stamp of the Mimmo Rotella Foundation. The SeriDécollage collection is published in the Elena Pontiggia catalogue Mimmo Rotella multiple décollages, Milan, Silvana Editoriale, 2005.

Although these are multiples, this collection expresses Mimmo Rotella's iconic artistic gesture, or "the tear"; in these works it is made by hand by the artist, making each copy unique and different thanks to the use of a very particular technique: the SeriDécollage, which consists of superimposing two screen prints on which the artist intervened to create the tears. It is therefore an evolution of the décollage technique that has made Mimmo Rotella famous since the 1950s. What makes this collection iconic is also the use of unique and original subjects, i.e. the posters of the great cinematic classics, such as Casablanca and Roman Holiday, and the films of Marilyn Monroe, Elvis, Sophia Loren, James Dean. This work in particular is in fact the poster of the rock icon Elvis Presley who plays the lead role in the film directed by Michael Curtiz "King Creole" of 1958.
