"Let's Take Care of the Cat"
by sabine7 / February 1, 2008
Argentine artist Claudio Roncoli’s mixed-media paintings are a combination of vintage advertising, traditional religious symbolism, propaganda, digital technology and artistic licence that serves as commentary on the global consumer culture. Roncoli’s own background as a child growing up in his dad’s toy store before teenage years in a seminary is a logical base from where to deal with ideas both secular and sacred. Roncoli’s upcoming solo show, The Great Pretender, is a salute to the tug between innocence and ignorance, and delight and excess, “the dreams that money can buy”.


Artist: Claudio Roncoli
