Simone Pellegrini


Simone Pellegrini is an Italian artist based in Bologna. His works have a visionary feel, like artefacts describing a forgotten system of beliefs. The works are unique, monoprints on a parchment-like paper, which Simone then hand-colours and distresses with oil to create a sense of age. Their graphic arrangements echo a medieval imagination, depicting Dantesque dreams of symbols and structures where groups of figures wander lost, consumed by its complexity. Cryptic and mystical, they tap into the experience of the intangible, seeming to spring from the parallel way of thinking of dreams and of the night. Simone Pellegrini’s works are in numerous public collections including the Museum of Modern Art in Bologna, the Civic Museum in Monza, Volker Feierabend in Milan, and Bologna Fiere.
