Italian Artist Portrays Yiwu
Post Time: 13/06/2017

“Yiwu is a city of great charm. I spent a lot of time on these works. I hope to show both the internationalization and cultural tradition of Yiwu through Pop Art.”

       May 18 was International Museum Day; thus, on the afternoon of May 17, an exhibition of the work of the Italian artist Marco Santaniello entitled “City Art Garden—Wander in Yiwu” opened at the Yiwu Museum. Marco Santaniello introduced visitors to ten of his artistic works, which were elaborately created for Yiwu.

       Pop Art, which Marco Santaniello employed for his creations and which originated in Britain in the 1950s, is a form of art that uses deconstruction, collages, or the repetitions of well-known objects, such as comics, posters, and images of pop stars, high-heeled shoes, or any other consumer goods.
