Massimo Agostinelli Lenticular Art Prints
Massimo Agostinelli is an Italian-American, London born contemporary artist from Manhattan, New York, living and working in Switzerland.
He graduated from Webster University and pursued apprenticeships in typesetting, typography, and other forms of printmaking, and had his first original artworks exhibited at a London art gallery in 2014. Combining iconic and pop culture images with palindromes in bold typesetting, his art prints immediately reflect his expertise with typography.
Agostinelli's fascination with words continued into limited edition artworks featuring pop cultural icons, with their bold typeset names morphing into anagrams commenting on them through lenticular art print animation; so 'The Mona Lisa' becomes 'Ah not a smile'.
More solo exhibitions followed in London art galleries and internationally, and from 2017 Massimo began a series of interventions; performance artworks delivered at Switzerland's Art Basel fair, critiquing and commenting on Art Basel, and works by modern artists including Marcel Duchamp, Roy Lichenstein, and Mark Rothko.
The interventions expanded to the London art gallery scene and the 2019 Frieze Art Fair, a year which also saw Agostinelli create a palindrome diptych artwork for the Michelin starred Marea restaurants in New York and Dubai, and an expanding range of original artworks with philanthropic organisations including UNICEF, AmfAR, the Laureus Foundation, and the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa, of which he is a founding patron.
Massimo specialises in drawing, painting, and art prints, primarily working with typography, digital art styles and various forms of word play. He focuses on traditional and innovative cutting edge technologies, using a wide variety of mediums and techniques, within a diverse spectrum of crafts; Massimo is an artist embracing lenticular art prints as an intrinsic feature of his original artworks and their meaning, and we're excited to feature his work here in the Lenticular Art Gallery, just outside London in Kent.
