Andrea Clanetti (1967) is a figurative painter. Born in Venice (Italy), he moved to Brussels
in 2007 where he has been living ever since. His work is displayed in solo and collective
shows. Since 2010 he is a permanent artist at the art gallery L’Entrepôt, in Monaco
Clanetti draws inspiration from street and Pop art, but tries to seize the reverse side of pop
light motives. Some of his work has been described as “dark” Pop art. His early production
echoes the lasting impression made on him by Emilio Vedova’s late paintings and Informal art.
Cinematographic mythology and film icons are an unfailing source of inspiration. His
compositions strive to capture a moment of suspended reality, often reaching for an emotion
more than a narrative.
His imagery is sourced in stratified memories of movie stills, cartoons and old drawings.
In recent works his inspiration comes from snapshots he collects from newspapers.
Clanetti uses acrylics, watercolor, India ink, charcoal and pastel on canvas or wood.
