Characters in Nicola Delvigo’s art are born from paper and glue, in a very personal use of the collage technique.
His art cannot disregard the pleasure of manual work , in an act suspended between the lightness of a game and the precision of an artisan.
Among his recurrent themes women: familiar or unknown to the artist but moulded from the same passionate craft.
Very particular is also the use of text, charachters move in a verbal background which is never separate from the human figure, creating an alphabet of feelings.
Nicola Delvigo’s art belongs to a poetic and naif universe suspended between desire, fun and mystery.
