Domenico Villano

Domenico Villano was born in Battipaglia on February 12, 1980. In the mid-90s, he began his artistic journey by delving into the world of street art and later immersing himself in the artistic circles of Naples and Campania. His passion for photography grew, and encounters with some figures in street photography led him to deepen his studies in this field. Numerous travels to exhibitions and galleries across Italy greatly influenced him, initiating a period of studying the great contemporary artists that increasingly drew him into the world of pop art.

From this experience, his research began, shaping his style and allowing him to discover new techniques and materials such as newspaper clippings and posters. This marked the birth of his first collages. However, it was after two significant encounters—with Andy Warhol and Mimmo Rotella—that Domenico decided to create his personal style by merging the insights of the father of pop art with the technique of the great Italian master Rotella. The result, as affirmed by Professor Vittorio Sgarbi, is “an informal art, very festive and of instinctive liberation.” A cheerful and lively mix, even more recognizable with the intuition to complete the artwork with enamels and acrylics.

His favorite subjects, in addition to Monroe and Loren, are the great icons of the past. The inclusion of phrases and messages of various inspirations turned the works into true manifestos. The very latest productions have introduced new materials, such as plexiglass, into the artworks. Particularly in crucifixions titled “Un solo Dio” (One God), plexiglass takes center stage, and the artwork assumes a profound meaning—a message to a world facing challenging and transformative times. Art, therefore, serves as a means of reflection, shaking consciences and prompting contemplation on often impersonal opinions. In the end, as Picasso said, “Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
