IN ARTE VERITAS
Lives and works between Lugano and Milan.
Graduated in industrial product design at the European Institute of Design in Milan (IED), he focused his career on communication and visual arts.
Andrea Crespi is a visual artist whose work develops in the continuous investigation of different media and themes including optical illusion, social transformation, the digital revolution, materializing in the interpretation of contemporary cultural changes that often see him involved in various charity and solidarity initiatives.
Crespi’s research identifies art as an instrument of perception and analysis of truth through a search for beauty, sometimes manifesting itself in an intimate, personal and erotic portrait of it.
The proposed subjects often rethink cultural icons in function of a multiple narration of the reality that surrounds us. By harnessing the fluidity of memory, each work redefines itself through the filter of contemporaneity, thus becoming a witness to our time.
If you don't love art, don't follow me.
In a world in constant change, artistic disciplines are blending and cooperating to reflect a more and more hybrid cultural landscape.
Crespi’s multimedia practice lends itself to the demands of today’s public, creating different entry points for people to access contemporary art more engagingly by the activation of different collaborations.
At the same time, Crespi considers the privileges and the responsibilities of being an artist, by taking part in different charity auctions, be coming part of non-for-profit projects and donating works to different causes.
