    Mirabilia: Personal exhibition of Bato
    From 21 April to 25 May, Von Buren Contemporary, Via Giulia, 13

    It is a journey into the medieval imagination, dotted with mythological figures, legendary populations and fantastic animals. Bato takes us with his works into a world inspired by different literary sources, from the Genesis of the Bible to the adventures of Alexander the Great, up to the mysterious Letter of the priest Gianni.The style of Bato is characterized by his ability not to give up the form but transform it into a sign, a rapid, incisive and elegant sign, spread on vast white backgrounds. Animals, landscapes, events and travel memories are the sources of inspiration from which he draws to create his compositions. If the works on canvas go in the direction of simplification and emptying of the form, to the point of reducing it to its contour, the sculptures instead represent its volumetric counterpart, with obvious references between the two.
