On the occasion of The Wall No. 5, the artist Marco Bongiorni has presented “Green Boxeur/Johnny Tapia”, the first work of a new series of paintings inspired by the boxe world. Bongiorni (1981) lives and works in Milan. Through a constant practice of ancient languages such as drawing and painting, he proposes a research around the mechanisms of perception, reading and visualization of the contemporary. Drawing and painting become probes with which to grasp the fragile resonances that impregnate the cognitive flow and obtain a shift of the very purpose of such practices. Bongiorni’s work is an attempt to resistance to the totalitarianism of calculating reason in favor of the majority elusive lateral mechanisms of imaginative thought. Since 2008 he has been a drawing teacher in NABA (New Academy of Fine Arts, Milan). His latest projects include KANGAL (gallery Six, Milan) and DRAWING AS FIGHTING (Palais de Tokyo, Paris), FLEETING DRAWING (Harabel, Tirana).
