Arid Rain at Dacia Gallery in NY. Artist Stefano Losi

Unrestrainable, by Stefano Losi, Acrylic and Oxidized Metals on Linen, 48×36

Dacia Gallery is pleased to present “Arid Rain”, the second solo exhibition of works by Italian artist and poet Stefano Losi. The author’s art project, developed between Milan, London, and New York since the early 1990’s, uniquely combines on linen an epigrammatic poetry in Latin and English and dramatic studies of the human figure in acrylic media, sands and oxidized metal minerals as iron, copper, bronze, titanium, and gold.

The main theme of the exhibition, the desperate existential unquietness inherent in the human condition, is captured by “Arid Rain”, a new poetry volume that collects the author’s work of the last two of years, introduced by a foreword of the renowned historian and art critic Renato Miracco. The book will be presented at the opening reception of May 16th.

**Stefano Losi was born in 1969 in Lake Como, near Milan, where he was raised and classically educated in fine arts. After having received his graduate degree at the Luigi Bocconi University of Milan in 1993, he has been senior manager in different International Institutions, and he is currently first officer at the United Nations in New York, where he is also President of the UNSRC Literary Cultural Circle. In 2005 he was nominated Knight of the Italian Republic by President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi.

“Violent Dances Fade” (Libertarian Poetical Fragments) is a personal art and poetry project created in Milan in 1991, and further developed in London and New York, that combines on linen studies of the human figure in acrylics, oxidized metal minerals and intense original poetry. Following a long series of events organized since the early 1990s in Europe, including several shows and poetry readings in formal and alternative spaces, ranging from galleries, to workers unions and social centers, his art has been honored with two solo exhibitions at the United Nations in New York. Antonio Maria Costa, UN Under-Secretary-General, wrote: “This is a “splendid union”… In the words of these poems I find the same hope I cherish when I observe the World.”

Four books collecting his visual art and epigrams, providing an overview of the author’s artistic work in the respective creative periods, were published in 1996, 2001, 2010 and 2013. Stefano Losi’s work has been featured in different international publications, among which a book on Italian contemporary artists curated by Renato Miracco, and published under the auspices of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The author continues to create visual art and poetry in Chelsea, New York.
