The artistic research of Fulvio Ioan focuses on pictorial and graphic language’s development in a narrative and expressionist direction. It is inspired by medieval images and themes from art history, seeking vitality and empathy in lines and colors, assembling figures like pieces of a puzzle.
The art, connected with the grotesque’s irony, is defined as a form of rebirth from social and cultural darkness. It’s a process that seeks to affirm beauty.
An underlying theme is the need to bring back craft to the art-making process. It is a demonstration that graphic techniques have a central role in contemporary artistic research. They are important, elegant and refined.
