After having repeatedly amazed the critics and the international Press and after having been given the nickname of “The Modern Leonardo da Vinci” by the British magazine Luxury News, the Italian artist Cesare Catania is now preparing himself for his next exhibition in Monte Carlo with a work of art unique in its kind.

With this work, I wanted to try to overcome the visual barriers that oblige the syndrome of Dalton sufferers to see a different reality than the common one, but not less attractive.

This is what the Italian artist explains referring to what inspired him during the making of his latest sculpture in silicone and steel. And that’s the way that the work number 57 entitled “The Mouth of Etna – E Version” is created and designed by Cesare Catania, just to emphasize the visual features of Dalton’s syndrome sufferers. For the first time in contemporary art that the artist enhances his work of art shaping it on the visual spectrum for the colorblind (more than 300 million people all over the world) .

Vincent Van Gogh, undisputed master in the use of color, was also colorblind. – Catania continues to explain. – I honestly don’t see color blindness as a deficiency: I’d call it more a characteristic. There is nothing more fascinating than thinking of one’s own work of art that changes colour depending on the point of view from which it is observed. The same Andy Warhol had experimented with his Marilyn Monroe, as while changing the color palette, the icon of American myth remained unchanged.

This work of art will be presented for the first time worldwide at the end of September 2017 in the Boat Show period in Monaco during the Top Marques Watches 2017 event, in the exhibition hall of the Hermitage Hotel.

Cesare Catania concludes:

The phrase “ART FOR EVERYONE” has a double meaning for me: “art aimed for the whole world” and “art considered as such from whoever observes it”, regardless of their own cultural, social or even physiological filters. If each of us would look at the colours of the world in our own way, we would all live in a world without prejudice….
