Products with VAT included show a price calculated with VAT tax, so the additional tax of 22% is already added to the price of these products.
The products with VAT Margin apply the additional tax of 22% only on the margin, the difference between the price at which the product is purchased and the price at which the same product is resold.
This Maurizio Galimberti's artwork is a unique piece made adjusting an original poster of the 1972 Olympic Games in Munich by Pierre Soulages, teacher in the contrast between black and white. In this case is evident the influence of graffiti. The artist intervenes in this series of works by overlaying to the original image some polaroid pictures, with the details of the original image itself.

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.
