The photographic painting of Daniele Galliano in “Una Pazza Felicità” continues to probe and explore the crowd, the collective sphere of a ritual, the pleasure of abandoning and immersing oneself in nature. The protagonists move and float in the blue of the sea or let themselves be sprayed by steaming waterfalls, gathered in small groups or isolated. These are stolen intimate portraits, landscapes, and glimpses from photo albums that seem inspired by our memories.
In this solo show at the metroquadro gallery, Daniele Galliano presents, together with other works from his recent production, his last two oil series, ‘Una Pazza Felicità’ and ‘Let’s Go’, produced in 2019 and previewed at the ArtMiami and Artefiera Bologna fairs. Thus resuming the program scheduled for 2019, interrupted by the health emergency.
Daniele Galliano was born in Pinerolo (Turin) in 1961. Self-taught, he began to exhibit in Turin, where he lives and works, quickly earning in the early 1990s a position of prominence in the Italian painting scene.
In 2006 he took part in the Ninth Biennale of Havana, in 2009 at the 53rd Venice Biennale, and in 2016 at the third edition of Kochi-Muziris Biennale in Kerala.
His work was exhibited in many solo and collective shows in Italy and in the world and became part of international public and private collections.
Over the past years, he also collaborated with various musicians, directors, and writers. In 2015 a monograph on his work was published by Skira.
