Painter and illustrator Andrea VENTURA presents his works, titled ‘Sans Souci’, with 2 Agenten at Galerie für Illustration, Berlin. ‘Sans Souci’ discusses the state of mind, in which Andrea approached the works of the exhibition; completely untouched by ‘sorrow’ or headache.
The character of a large-scale sketchbook enabled Andrea to spatially correlate various motifs without any restrictions in regards to content. Hence, any of the small to medium-sized works are full of improvisation, inspired by his memories and various impressions of daily life.
The artist, born in 1969 in Milan, moved from Italy to New York in 1991. His clients include New York Times, Rolling Stone, Manager Magazine, Die Welt am Sonntag as well as many other national and international newspapers, magazines and agencies.
Andrea VENTURA has been living in Berlin since 2009.
