Silent Cities Bronzi di Riace, Post Metaphysical Art, acrylic on canvas, 80x80x4cm, 2020
They had their hero’s and their idol’s… but the CATASTROPHE obligate them to escape… abandoning the ‘CITY OF SILENCE’
The last BEE died…they poisoned it …. in that city no one wanted to stay …it became “THE CITY OF SILENCE” in a world of extinction
Those who drank that “COCO COLA” …were the last to leave the city in a hurry…finished
throwing the can … THE “CITY OF SILENCE
MICKEY MOUSE had given the CHILDREN a lot of joy…but when everyone left because of the terrible POLLUTION…the VANDALS destroyed everything…leaving empty the ‘CITY OF SILENCE’
They all left in a HURRIED RUSH . . . but VERY SILENTLY . . . BUT the LION
Simply continued to SLEEP . . . and remained there . . . in the abandoned ‘CITY OF SILENCE’
She try to go as QUICK as possible.. but when arrived…she found NOBODY…In the ‘CITY OF SILENCE’
On this occasion, I would like to show my work relating to the Metaphysical World with its mysterious empty ‘piazzas’ all-the-more current to us in our present state of WORLD LOCKDOWN. A LOCKDOWN where objects become central players in a deserted city. I would like my work to make people stop and ponder and to make them feel emotion in this harassed world we live in. It is to them that I dedicate my ART AND ARTWORKS MADE IN COVID 19 LOCKDOWN A HOMMAGE TO OUR CITY.
Philosophically related to POP-ART.

Winning a prestigious award after graduating from the Academia de Belle Arte in Milan, Sebastiano Navarra spent the following decade as a Creative Director in the Advertising world. He pursued a creative investigation that gravitated towards the concept of ‘’The Beauty of Allure’’ that combines Art-Creativity and Marketing. He was part of a group of national/international architects/painters/sculptors that focused on artist-investigation. Sebastiano has initialized another fertile period of art, which ultimately flowed into the creative expression that exists in his present work. It is greatly influenced by his own Italian culture, but he recognizes and loves all the phases in art history.
