Renowned Contemporary Artist Federico Clapis' artworks now in India on Annasach.studio
Federico Clapis is a contemporary Italian artist based in Milan. Ten years ago, Federico began a long inner journey to explore the most intimate conditions of the human soul, living in an ashram in India and continuing his research in the West through various existential paths. Clapis lives his art as a materialization of his experiences, and as a medium of introspection to share with his followers.Technology, a recurring theme in his most famous artworks, is a metaphor for the contemporary in order to explore the human condition.
Federico's notable works include 300 meter long bronze 'crypto-connection' sculpture in London. “Crypto Connection”, situated prominently at Observation Point on London’s Southbank between the OXO Tower and the BFI, has been deemed one of the most ambitious marketing projects in the crypto world to date. The use of classical sculpture in polished bronze together with a provocative futuristic topic juxtaposes perfectly to reflect the dichotomy of cryptocurrency itself: a seemly fleeting trend, yet built to endure.
The piece above Mama Egotchi plays with a modern toy theme. About 80 million Mama Egotchi have sold worldwide. In fact, the inventor won an IG Nobel Prize for Economics. This toy’s established A-List. So, Federico Clapis the sculptor confidently fiddles with the name to entitle his concrete piece. His Ego insertion seems subtle in the name. But it makes a profound impact.For instance, this piece could refer to babies as ego boosters and toys. People have babies for all sorts of egocentric reasons. They sometimes even treat an infant like a Tamagotchi. When an infant first comes home it’s a hamster wheel of: feed-change-burp-feed-change-burp. It’s repetitive to the point of robotic to some degree. But this piece points out that babies aren’t ego boosters or toys. They’re human above all else.
His BabyDrone sculpture is a beautiful and elegant piece of artwork to display in your home. Crafted from magnificent bronze, it has an innocent feel with the newborn baby in the stork blanket while also representing new age technology by replacing the stork with a drone.
