Carlito Dalceggio

"I wish I were a brush, to travel on your skin."

Carlito Dalceggio takes his inspiration in travels that define himself as well as his art. Being nomadic, his aesthetic is rooted in a tribal spirit he gleans when traveling.

Originally from Canada, Carlito Dalceggio lives and works in New York for the moment. His studio moves from place to place and follows his envy. During the past ten years, he has lived in Bali, Mexico and Paris. Each of these cities nourishes his creation and causes him to push his aesthetical symbiosis further through different mediums, however keeping painting central. Carlito Dalceggio has been performing “live paintings” in front of people since 1997. He participated in several events such as Cirque du Soleil’s Premiere parties, as well as events for charity benefits.

To him, these performances liven up his creations by the trance sensation between the spectators, the artists that collaborate with him and himself. As a silent dialogue, the artist uses this mystical energy interaction to create his pictorial work.

Carlito Dalceggio’s sketch books are central in his creative process. More than one hundred of these aesthetic adventures are led by a title through which he explores his ideas and his intuitions. A visual story emanates from these inspirations, gathering many drawings and patterns from the environment of the moment. When finished, the artist selects different parts of his sketch books to create a set of paintings. Carlito Dalceggio refuses to sell his books even though he enjoys showing them off. They are parallel episodes of his production, as if they were witnesses of his artistic development and his inspirations.

The pictorial work of Carlito Dalceggio cannot be categorized, but tribal energy, eroticism, mysticism and color exploration are central in his production. His paintings refer to a way of life forgotten by modern occidental societies. In spite of the overwhelming urban environment, Carlito Dalceggio manages to arrange his studio so he can escape reality and recover the feelings encountered during his trips. He gets his inspiration from dialectic symbols he isolates in order to give them a new signification and then juxtaposes them to create a new and more complex symbolism.
