Angelo Accardi is an Italian painter and sculptor with a penchant for the absurd.
Angelo Accardi creates works under the theme misplaced, his images often include ostriches and other large animals in urban or domestic settings. he is also partial to including popular characters from pop culture, such as the Simpsons in his images creating a dichotomy between high art and popular culture.
Accardi's misplaced series are playful but also force the viewer to consider the way humans have taken the habitats from other species we share this planet with.
Placing a rhino in a street scene, or an electro pink sheep in a store forces the viewer to think why that animal has been placed there.
Accardi's work is playful, colourful and vibrant, the thematic use of the ostriches means that his work is recognisable anywhere. Accardi has created a distinct voice and brand which allows him to explore other themes whilst remaining true to his style.
