Arte contemporáneo y la biósfera de Oaxaca

Daniele Crepaldi

(1953-2018 Milán, Italia)

From a very early age he worked in the graphic studio Grafica Uno where he learned print making under the guidance of Giorgio Upiglio. A number of outstanding artists passed through this workshop and Crepaldi photographed them: De Chirico, Lam, Galle, Adami, Alechinsky, Paladino, Corzas, among others. For a time he alternated painting and photography, eventually moving to visual art.

He moved to Mexico City in 1993 and in 1998 moved to his home in the city of Oaxaca.

His expression is austere and his life is replete with spirituality. Crepaldi uses materials such as asphalt, oxides, and tars to compose his figurative, primitive images of great expressive strength, which he calls chronomats.
