|Support: Paper||Height: 84|
Originally born to portray faces, the Polaroid Mosaic becomes the occasion for Maurizio Galimberti to represent architectures and landscapes too. His compositions are equilibrated and every detail interesting for the artist has a correspondence with a single photograph, which means a Polaroid in this case. This work is part of a seiers of single and mosaic Polaroids dedicated to New York City, which is the symbol of the contemporary world for Galimberti and the place where his research on light began in 2006; a mathematically precise collection comes out, with different harmonies which can express themselves through skyscrapers, streets, light and sky.In this case the Polaroids were made on the 23th April 2010.
Polaroid Mosaic by Maurizio Galimberti, signed in original by the artist.
Maurizio Galimberti was born in 1956 in Como. He is a famous Italian artist and photographer. While he was very young, he developd a passion for photography and began to participate to severals contests.
At first he used the analogic photographic film, but then he switched to polaroids, so to immediately see the results of his photos, without waiting. In the early ‘90s, Galimberti left the family business in order to dedicate himself only to photography. In 1991 he started to collaborate with Polaroid, becoming an official Sponsor. In 1995 is published the book “Polaroid Pro Art”, and in 1997 his polaroid mosaics entered in the art collections.
The technique used by Galimberti has been influenced by Boccioniand Duchamp, and it consists in creating a collage of polaroids, each one portraying a different particular of the same represented image. The different polaroids are then brought close together to recreate the image into a collage.
He realized portraits of celebrities such as Lady Gaga, Robert de Niro and Johnny Depp. The turning point was when Galimberti met the collector Fumagalli, because it was thanks to him that the artist began to exhibit in international cities, like Venice, Berlin and New York, of which he created some beautiful portfolios.

if you LIVE IN EU
If you live in Europe (CEE) the price we show you already includes taxes. The works are taxed either with VAT exposed (22%) or VAT with the margin, if you are a private person you do not change anything, if you are a company: in In the first case, you will recover the VAT, in the second, no. When you put the works in the cart you will be separated from the vat exposed.
If you DON'T LIVE IN EU and you want an EXTRA EU shipping
Many works (not all) have an exposed VAT of 22% included in the price, this vat will be spun off! Obviously you will pay the VAT to your destination country, if due. For example if you live in Switzerland you save 22% but you will have to pay 7.7% to your customs, if you live in Hong Kong you will save 22% and you will not have to pay anything to your customs (lucky you).
