Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba is a Massalombarda-born Italian artist and designer who creates other-world pieces that turn ordinary everyday objects into genuine art works. Among them, stands out his series of figurative lamp sculptures that combines animal and human sculptures with vintage light supports and chandeliers.
“Connections between Man and Nature are his favourite theme; interpreting both dynamics and beauties of nature; showing the Man’s attitude affecting the original. He loves thinking about his work as a direct continuation of what he used to do when he was a child, playing with everything he finds, and create what his mind imagined. Actually, looking for the aesthetic component and concept, takes ideas from the same sources he created while playing, daydreaming with everything normally surrounds him. He learned from Art how an idea could be elegant, that’s why he’s always looking for pure concepts and summary.” – Marcantonio Raimondi Malerba.
