The artwork by Matteo Guarnaccia, Watermelon Sutra measures 70x100 cm and was made in a limited edition of 100 pieces.
The work shows contemporary archaic figures that become pop in the process, revealing traces of rock'n'roll. The figures, juxtaposing one another, perform a crazy feat where sabotage is confused with archaeology.
Guarnaccia creates in this way a reasoned guide that starts from the psychedelic cave sessions of the Palaeolithic, tackles Attic vascular production, Japanese confectionery, and makes a detour into spiritual, initiatory Indo-Himalayan and pre-Columbian arsenals. In the artist's work, it is no stranger to identifying a study of familiar design and Fifties objects. Flowing allegories, a sense of irony and existential itches in the process of resolution characterise the artistic production of Matteo Guarnaccia.

Active since the early 1970s, Matteo Guarnaccia was a cultural agit-prop artist of the alternative scene. Guarnaccia founded the psychedelic magazine 'Insekten Sekte' in Amsterdam in 1969, which was one of the best expressions of hippie culture. With his unmistakable graphic line, he collaborated with various counter-cultural publications of the period, from the American 'Berkeley Barb' to the Italian 'Fallo!'.
In the 1980s, he became interested in shamanism and traditional cultures, interests that led him to travel to Japan, the United States, South America and Australia. During his long career, he has exhibited in various countries such as Italy, the United States, Japan, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain and Switzerland, also showing in important institutions such as the Triennale of Milan.
The artworks by Matteo Guarnaccia are an interweaving of echoes coming simultaneously from archaic cultures, modern techniques of psychic analysis, and scientific research on the activities of the mind, all appropriately mixed with robust doses of irony.
Guarnaccia has skilfully blended different cultural traditions into a single sign, with a style that remains extremely elastic and magically visionary to this day. The artist has been active in various fields, including design, journalism and fashion. A costume historian and art critic, he has published more than thirty essays on the historical avant-garde and antagonistic creative movements.
"Amusing and philosophical, he has achieved the greatest possible expressive ability in rendering psychedelic fantasies in images" - Albert Hofmann
In 2017, in order to recount the psychedelic philosophy that has come to our society, Guarnaccia Matteopublished a book that traces the places of the revolution, without neglecting the legacy that this aesthetic has had in contemporary digital culture. In the book by Matteo Guarnaccia, Il Grande Libro della Psichedelia (The Big Book of Psychedelia), a literary and visual journey is recounted, covering Mexico in the words of the playwright Antonin Artaud, the Berlin of the German theologian Ludwig Weimer, the films of Federico Fellini and Stanley Kubrick, along with other important figures.
