Antonio Riello

Since the early years of his career, he has been interested in digital art, with a particular emphasis on video games, intended as a rich means of self-expression with endless creative potential, especially vis-à-vis the visual arts. The commonality of this artist’s creations is a manipulation of images and objects, together with the relationship between ironic invention and conceptual paradox. In addition to virtual subjects, Riello also incorporates objects and subjects from contemporary society, presenting them through a process of modification and decontextualization that is quite unexpected and entertaining for the user. Disarming invention and unsettling language are used by the artist as an undisguised form of social protest, yet one always cloaked in the ambiguity of the message.
