PHOSPHINE & VACCINIUM MACROCARPON is the new wall created in Turin by Fabio Petani with a citizen project named Murarte.
“Fabio Petani was born in summer 1987 in Pinerolo. After having obtained the scientific high school degree, he receives an M.A. in Cultural Heritage (Faculty of Humanities) from the University of Turin, with an M.A. thesis on Urban Art and the street culture from the origins to this day. This kind of investigation brings him closer to the art scene of Turin. Soon he becomes part of the cultural association Il Cerchio E Le Gocce (particularly active within the art scene not only of Turin since 2001).
His works are characterized by a disarranged harmony of lines, shapes and volumes, which complement each other through the use of faint and harmonious colors, blended into breaking elements. His research analyzes the chemical and molecular aspects of objects giving rise to a lengthy operation of reconstruction of the elements in the periodic table. An increasingly detailed production that brings out an ever-changing organic complexity. Each chemical element, just like each plant, is somehow connected to the environment, the space or the context in which the wall is made. The importance of the connection between work and context is evoked also by his works on wood, paper and other alternative materials. It is through the employment of such materials that Fabio Petani tries to get carried away by the matter, aiming at ending the periodic table with a cluster of artworks able to tell a story about the alchemy between art, chemistry and nature.
