Max Papeschi

Born in 1972 - Italy

BIOGRAPHY

After an experience as author and director for theatre, TV and cinema, Max Papeschi began creating digital-art. An iconoclastic artist, his work was an immediate success among the critics and the public. His unconventional work shows a globalized and consumerist society and reveals in a realistic and ironical way all the horror of this life style.

From "Nazi-Micky Mouse" to "Ronald McDonald Butcher", cult icons lose their reassuring effect and change into a collective nightmare.

Max Papeschi has exhibited 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).
