Mario Loprete (b. Catanzaro, 1968) is a graduate of Accademia of Belle Arti, Catanzaro. His work focuses on the research and documentation of the world of hip hop. Mario uses concrete as a support of his new works, as the Internet has cleared all geographical boundaries, and it's a material created by the ancient Romans, but today it's a modernity and contemporarity indicator. Mario will have a solo exhibition in Venezia, at Manni Art Gallery, from 29 August to 31 October (curated from Lara Caccia). Find Mario on instagram and learn more on his website.
