"I want to believe" is the hope of the third world population that is placed in the promises of the multinationals. The exploitation and the illusion (in the bandana that embellishes a face and which is rich in simulations and logos) versus the desire to continue to believe in the promises of a better future. But the bandana is incomplete, like the illusion.
Spray and acrylics on canvas. Signed on the back. With COA.

Mate is one of the most successful Italian street artists with over 800 walls in Italy, Europe and Brasil. Graduated at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts, he prefers figurative hyperrealism to pure graffiti writing, on canvas and on walls. Each work contains a social message on which Mate invites us to reflect upon.

He defines his work as a continuous work in progress since there are so many social issues that he intends to develop and so many are the messages that the world needs. He has exhibited in several personal and collective collections, enjoying great success with the public and critics, especially in Lugano, Switzerland, a city particularly attentive to new trends in art.

Since 2004, Mate works actively in urban areas and in institutional contexts and is always present at the most important graffiti and art events such as Salone Primo in Permanent Exhibition in Milan, Meeting of Styles, Underground Elements, International Street Poetry Festival, Art on Naviglio.

    Opera giunta in perfetto stato. Critico il costo della spedizione (€ 150), per un quadro di cm 50x40. Catawiki dovrebbe controllare, intervenendo con consigli al venditore e imporre evl. correzioni.
