Artist Lelio Pederiva was born in Mantua and studied at the School of Fine Arts in Bologna, Italy. Pederiva’s artistic style is heavily influenced by: the theory of perception, the heightening of senses and stimuli and the reconceptualising and fusing of Haring’s and Picasso’s “colourful” vision of the world. The spirited prints of Pederiva are conceived as single compositions; however, they can also be viewed with varying dimensions such as a mosaic of individual faces or observed in its entirety. Many of Pederiva’s prints depict full and fragmented faces with an emphasis on eyes in which each set is unique in shape and detailing from the other. Such graphic forms are conceived as signs that Pederiva gives shape to through his mosaics of faces and in turn becomes a form of an illustrative language that is able to tell stories and ultimately move and amaze audiences.
