“Painting is running an investigation. I’m interested in the state of being wrong, in the error, the stumbling, and that specific moment when they dissolve by accident. Human interest stories, news, film references are often the boundaries of my theater, where many figures develop and interwine. And… However, it’s always a matter of dirty hands.”




Bruno Marrapodi (b.1982), lives and works in Milano. Graduated at the Institute of Design he further specialized in painting exhibiting nationally and internationally. Dragged by a mix of local tradition and grotesque fiction he developed an interest for crimes, cabaret, poetry. He recently started to produce short movies and radio broadcasting.
