Born in 1978, Paolo Philippo Parenti graduated in painting restoration at the "Palazzo Spinelli" school in Florence in 2008. He was able to familiarize himself with pictorial matter and oil painting techniques, reproducing the works of 18th century Italian painters such as Tiepolo and Canaletto. He also attended drawing classes at the Bosio Pavilion in Monaco. For the past two years, Parenti has undertaken a symbolic artistic research based on an introspection of the personality and the unfolding of the spirit of the world. As member of the National Committee of the Arts of Monaco, he lives and works in Monaco. Paolo Philippo Parenti "My works testify to the willingness to explore inner thoughts, both personal and collective. Gather feelings that flow into our time and record them on a canvas. I also try to dig into ancient history and bring out the characteristic features of all nations, a common source of spiritual information that is innate and present in each of us, but too often forgotten. My goal is to translate these feelings into simple, understandable and up-to-date language. Sometimes by destabilizing the spectator, (see work "Perplexed reflection, but where is the world going?"), who becomes the protagonist of the work and sees his own image restored on a polished and undulated steel plate. The resulting reflection is distorted and the individual's characteristics have disappeared. While a model dressed in an explosion of colours opens his arms to the sky and encourages the spectator to ask himself: but where is the world going? Sometimes by making people think in an enigmatic way (see work "The Way", "The Walk of the Blind"). Geometry is an important element of construction that characterizes most of my works, as is the use of mannequins that represent humanity. Every artist who meditates on human and divine existence is one day confronted with the questions: "Who are we?, where are we?, where are we going?" It is good to reflect, (see work "Why am i thinking, i think it worth it"), to move away from the void (see "The march of the blind") and to rely on reason (see work "The force of reason") to contemplate what surrounds us. We realize that it is an eternal renewal (see work "Renaissance" and "Infinite")."
