Massimiliano Esposito

Tauromachie

Tauromachie

Material: Acrylic on cardboard
Size: 120 x 80 cm

This my artwork (Bullfighting, 2019) is a sarcastic and cruel metaphor for racial hatred. More generally, it represents "the killing" that the so-called "white man" causes to all other races and cultures.
Maximilian was born in Milan, Italy, on December 17, 1969. He started painting as a child and despite his art school training, he has maintained an instinctive approach to his work, letting his subconscious dictate his subject matter. The recurring figure of a pre-adolescent child, neither male nor female, lends a coherence to this free-form universe. Since moving to Paris, France, in 2012, his work has focused on that unripe phase of human existence when gender is still undefined and sexuality has yet to be expressed. The melancholy and reflective characters he portrays are experiencing the often difficult and painful transition from childhood games and innocence to the first upsets of adolescence and adulthood.
