PAOLO CASSARÀ, SCULPTOR

Cassarà was one of the first in Italy to work with polychrome terracotta, a technique considered obsolete until its "rediscovery" in recent years.

His polychrome terracotta creations are the fruit of first-hand analysis of the world of youth. They offer an innovative image of sculpture, set in direct contact with everyday life. The artist draws inspiration from the streets, with ironic, subtly melancholy works that speak of the search for an identity in the face of a system dominated by conformity and fleeting fashions.

Paolo Cassarà was born in Monreale, Sicily, on 26 June, 1968. His artistic career began in Milan, where he has lived and worked since 1987. He gave his first personal exhibitions in Turin, Milan and Boston (USA).

He has also taken part in numerous collective exhibitions held at museums and public institutes: in 1994 "Icastica" [Representative art] at the municipal modern art gallery, Bologna; in 1996 "Collezionismo a Torino" [Collecting in Turin] at Castello di Rivoli museum of contemporary art; in 2000 "Sui Generis" at PAC Padiglione d'Arte Contemporanea, Milan; in 2003 "Italian Factory - La Nuova Scena Artistica Italiana" [the new Italian art scene], one of the fringe events at the 50th Venice Biennale, at the European Parliament buildings in Strasbourg, and at the Palazzo della Promotrice delle Belle Arti in Turin.

In 2004 Cassarà was invited to participate in the event "Subway 3004" at Superstudio Più in Milan, in collaboration with the City of Milan, and in 2007 he took part in the collective exhibitions "Street Art, Sweet Art" at PAC in Milan and "Arte e Omosessualità" [art and homosexuality] at Palazzo della Ragione in Milan and Palazzina Reale in Florence.

Also in 2007 he took part in the exhibition "La Nuova Figurazione italiana - To be continued..." [the new Italian figuration] at Fabbrica Borroni, Bollate (Milan) and the retrospective in homage to gallery owner Guido Carbone "Questo mondo è fantastico" [this world is fantastic], at Palazzo Bricherasio, Turin.

In 2008 he was invited to the exhibition "Rumors" at Ex Arsenale Borgo Dora in Turin, which ran concurrently with the Artissima fair, and he also took part in the "Artisti per Arianna" [artists for Arianna] auction with Christie's.
