Bio

After an experience as author and director for theatre, Tv and cinema, Max Papeschi starts with digital-art. As figurative artist his approach with Art-World was an immediate success among the critics and the public. His work Politically-Incorrect shows a globalized and consumerist  Society and reveals in a realistic ironical way all the horror of this life style. From the Nazi-Micky Mouse to the Ronald McDonald Butcher the cult icons loose their reassuring effect and change into a collective nightmare.  He has exhibit his works in many galleries around the world.
In 2014 he published his biography: “How to sell Swastikas and Live Happy” by Sperling & Kupfer (Mondadori Group).

Max Papeschi arriva alla digital-art dopo l’esperienza da autore e regista in ambito teatrale, televisivo e cinematografico. Come artista figurativo il suo approccio con l’Art-World è stato d’immediato successo sia di pubblico che di critica. Il suo lavoro Politically-Scorrect, mostra una società globalizzata e consumista rivelandone i suoi orrori in maniera ironicamente realistica. Dal Topolino Nazista al Ronald McDonald Macellaio le icone cult perdono il loro effetto tranquillizzante per trasformarsi in un incubo collettivo. Ha esposto i suoi lavori in molte gallerie in giro per il mondo.
Nel 2014 è uscita in Italia la sua autobiografia “Vendere Svastiche e Vivere Felici” edita da Sperling & Kupfer (Gruppo Mondadori).

Después de una experiencia como autor y director de teatro, televisión y cine, Max Papeschi se inicia con el arte digital. Como artista figurativo su acercamiento con el mundo del arte fue un éxito inmediato entre los críticos y el público. Su obra Políticamente incorrecta, se muestra una vida globalizada y consumista, y pone de manifiesto de una manera realista irónica todo el horror de este estilo de vida. Desde el ratón Micky nazi a la Ronald McDonald Butcher los iconos de culto pierden su efecto tranquilizador y el cambio en una pesadilla colectiva.

Après avoir travaillé en tant qu’auteur et réalisateur dans le théâtre, la TV et le cinéma, Max Papeschi devient artiste et s’attèle au digital art. En tant qu’un artiste iconoclaste, son succès sur la scène artistique contemporaine fut immédiat, il devient dès lors un artiste adulé tant par le public que par la critique. Son travail non-conformiste, ironiquement réaliste met en scène une société globalisée et consommatrice révélant les horreurs et les contradictions du monde contemporain et de notre proche passé. Du «NaziFuckingMouse» au «Ronald The Butcher Boy», les icônes cultes perdent leur neutralité médiatique tranquillisante et se transforment en réel cauchemar collectif. Son travail a été exposé dans le monde entier ET dans de très nombreuses galeries et foires d’art internationales.

マックス・パペスキは劇場やテレビ、映画の作家、監督を経験した後、人物画のアプローチでデジタル・アートを始めるやいなや、評論家、大衆から高い評価を得る。彼の“政治的に正しくないショー”はグローバル化された消費社会の現れに対する恐怖を彼なりに皮肉かつ現実的に表現した物だ。ナチス・ミッキーマウスから屠殺者ドナルドダックなど、人々を元気ずけるカルトな象徴を失わせ、集団の悪夢に変えてしまう。彼は主にヨーロッパのギャラリーで展覧会を開いている。

Tiyatro sinema ve televizyon yazarlığı ve yönetmenliği deneyiminden sonra, Sanat hayatına digital- sanat ile adım attı. Sanat eleştirmenleri ve İzleyici halk kitlesinden olumlu eleştiriler alan ve hızla başarıyı yakalayan Figüratif sanatçı Max Papeschi, “haddini aşan uygunsuzlukta”politik ve küreselleşen tüketim bağımlılığını ele alan ironik çalışmalarında gerçekliği tüm dehşetiyle ortaya koyuyor. “Nazi Sexy Mouse”tan, “Katil Mc Donald’s” a kadar kullandığı kült imgeler Papeschi’nin eserlerinde tüm masumiyetlerini kaybederek kollektif bir kabusa dönüşüyor. Max Papeschi’nin çalışmaları tüm dünyada sanat galerilerinde sergilenmeye devam ediyor.

В цифровое искусство Макс Папески приходит после успешной работы как автор и режиссер в театре, кино и на телевидении. Как представитель фигуративного направления, он сразу начал пользоваться большим успехом в художественной среде как у зрителей так и у критики. Его серия работ «Политически некорректный», показывает глобализированное общество потребления, разоблачая его пороки в ироничной манере. Начиная с Микки Мауса нациста и заканчивая Рональдом МакДональдом мясником, культовые иконы современности теряют свой успокаивающий и увеселяющий эффект, превращаясь в коллективный кошмар. Работы Макса Папески выставлялись во многих галереях по всему миру.
