Originally from Canada, Carlito Dalceggio finds his inspiration in travels that define himself as well as his art. Being nomadic, his aesthetic is rooted in a tribal spirit he gleans when traveling. It nourishes his creation and causes him to push his aesthetical symbiosis further through different mediums, however keeping painting central.
The pictorial work of Carlito Dalceggio cannot be categorized, but tribal energy, eroticism, mysticism and color exploration are central to his production. His paintings refer to a way of life forgotten by modern occidental societies. He gets his inspiration from dialectic symbols he isolates in order to give them a new signification and then juxtaposes in order to create a new and more complex symbolism.
His paintings reflect recurrent patterns with deep significations. The circle and the infinity symbol hint at the absolute eroticism of a perfect line. Moreover, he asserts his graphic choices by layering coats of paint, giving dimension to colors and a scheming texture to the surface.
Carlito Dalceggio’s sketchbooks are central to his creative process. More than one hundred of these aesthetic adventures are led by a title through which he explores his ideas and his intuitions. A visual story emanates from these inspirations, gathering many drawings and patterns from the environment of the moment. When finished, the artist selects different parts of his sketchbooks to create a set of paintings. They are parallel episodes of his production, as if they were witnesses of his artistic development and his inspirations.
Citizen of the world, Carlito Dalceggio looks for perfect unity between art and life. He is attentive to each detail of his existence, finding keys towards interpreting freedom. Love, nature, vision and conscience remain themes of his inspiration.
