Born in 1983 , Laura Leo (italian artist) shows his artistic inclinations from an early age , she attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna and has participated in numerous scenes in the national and international art scene . She began his artistic career drawing on the world of ' illustration and comics , creating works with a strong symbolic impact and color , in their intense emotional expressiveness , very refined in their sign concise, specific to their freshness and spontaneity of the characters, in which the concept of universally recognized icon starts to be personally developed and then transformed into a completely new image , an inventive mix concrete and where they enter allusions , satire , reality nude and pungent .
Consistent with this concept of transformation and change , the artist arrives at a new artistic poetry , focused on the concept of rebirth and constant evolution that is clearly legible inspiration to Mimmo Rotella and its famous avant-garde posters . Laura Leo , in fact, starts from the idea of the poster, removed from the urban landscape and then ripped and reworked a new life but , more importantly, a new meaning : his works depart from an image and transform into another .
The rift is the point of death and , at the same time , a new life ; a passage, a " scar " that immediately transforms a given concept to another completely different. Where tradition and universally recognized , have turned much of its original meaning ; reversed , transformed into something new . The original elements and new coexist peacefully within an image in which the parties become torn the maximum point of interruption and inevitable metamorphosis.
