The Italian artist Fabrizio Bellanca of Rome is the founder of the exhibition Boston – Vienna 2ways. This journey into the heart of contemporary art of Boston and Vienna is an exchange between Europe and the United States that offers the opportunity to think about different identities and cultural heritages.
Bellanca’s work represents Italy’s experimental side, one for all the world to see. Many paintings portray cities like Boston, New York and Vienna, where the foundation of their architecture and the physiognomy of their people become a source of inspiration for the artist,
who uses a combination of art and technology; in his works, metallic shadows and brushes of color give new birth to the consistency of reality.
The Consulate General of Italy in Boston supports this project, with the hope that contemporary Italian art will assume even a larger role in the international level. We will continue to promote new initiatives that strengthen the dynamic and innovative image of our country. I hope that the public will appreciate the exhibition and I would like to take the chance to give a warm welcome to all the artists that are participating.
