Rosario Salerno

 

Rosario Salerno is an Italian sculptor and comic author residing in Berlin. Currently, he favours the sculptural technique of ceramics, as it allows him to induce mental and physical closure to the concept of the human body. 

His current project 'Party Animals'  is inspired by the underground culture of Berlin nightlife. They are portraits of people that one could meet on the city streets, in the U-Bahn, in clubs, idealised and crystalised in shining glazed ceramic. Each of them is accompanied by an animal alter ego or animal soul.
