The first retrospective exhibition by the Italian artist Antonio He, which presents his paintings and sculptures, opens at the Museum of contemporary history of Russia.

As told to journalists a press-attache of the Embassy of Italy in Russia Theodore Danese, this is the first retrospective exhibition of Antonio, He in Russia. , He is an unusual figure, especially in view of his biography — his mother immigrated from Italy to Switzerland, and his father he never knew. «The conflict with the father figure has affected his work. On the one hand, this story is non-standard, on the other — typical. This is the story of migrants,» she said.

According to her, He later discovered his artistic talents, so he put it in the picture of all their inner anguish and feelings that he had accumulated over a lifetime.

«This man lived his life quite lonely, at the same time in his work he expressed everything that tormented him and tear inside. These wild beasts with open mouths that grab prey, produce a frightening impression. We are scared when we look at these paintings. They reveal the theme of emotions of the modern poet,» said Danese.

As noted in the Museum, the exhibition includes paintings and sculptures, He cast in bronze by originals, which were created from the clay of the river Po.

«The worst suffering, will release the artist’s life, expressed in self-portraits: in them he cries out loud in pain like a wounded animal, painting allows tormented soul to find a voice and freedom. Paintings, He filled with anxiety, loneliness, instinctive struggle for existence, the desire to win a place in the sun, a desperate desire to find love and friendship – something without which can not do any one person, in whatever era he lives», — emphasized in the Museum.
