Sylvester Stallone is an artist too. Some doubt? Check is current exhibition ‘Sylvester Stallone Painting. From 1975 Until Today’ in Russia: at St. Michael’s (Engineers’) Castle. Continuation of the exposition – in the Marble Palace. It’s worth!
Yes, before being Rambo and Rocky, Sylvester Stallone had intended to become an artist and in fact, he has never stopped painting in parallel with his work in film. Then, painting for him arises out of an inner necessity, it’s the fastest and most exact way to process and translate his subconscious.
Critics say he is influenced by Basquiat. In fact, his artwork tells us his biography, fifty years of an intense life, full of portraits of celebrities and personal experiences. But his colors are so strong and personal that he gets a new energy, a new world beyond the people who have surrounded the artist.
If you have the chance, don’t miss this event, Yareah friends. On view until January 13, 2014.
