Riccardo Mannelli: A Lion in Winter

Lion of contemporary Italian art Riccardo Mannelli is not unknown in the US -- but when his compelling work is recognized, it is most often by fellow painters who admire his particular combination of advanced techniques in color and draftsmanship and the innovative, refined deliberations of composition he lavishes on his edgy content. Yet it may prove to be the subversive sensuality of his ultra-modern figures and portraits, demonstrating a kind of feminism that is really a powerful revolutionary humanism, together with the rich tenor of his unbowed social and political commentary that will finally capture the imagination of a whole new generation of audiences.

L'illustrazione italiana conquista il mondo, da New York a Nuova Delhi: non è una fuga di cervelli - molti disegnatori lavorano in Italia e pubblicano anche sulle pagine di Repubblica - ma un'esplosione di immagini. Quelle di Riccardo Mannelli sono arrivate a Los Angeles, dove si è appena inaugurata la sua prima mostra negli Stati Uniti. Cento opere alla Building Bridges Art Exchange di Santa Monica, fino all'8 marzo. "Gli italiani espongono molto fuori dal nostro paese perché offriamo talenti, espressività, st
