Doménico CV Talarico is a German-Italian artist who lives and works in Berlin, Germany. His paintings are strongly influenced by the nostalgic and sometimes melancholic beauty of the first half of the 20th century. His portraits are all based on real people from that period. They varnished trough time, what’s left from them is the photographic remain. Doménico questions the concept of identity and its fading through time. He uses these photographs and revives people from different decades and sets them up in new fictive arrangements (series).
He takes inspiration from the era of French Art Déco and combines it with a contemporary and reduced form of modern portraiture to build a bridge between the past and the present. His artworks are shown in numerous exhibitions across Europe, they are part of several private collections in Vienna, Paris and Brussels. He is part of the Enter Art Foundation in Berlin and founder of the Goldstaub Collective.
