Very primitive, very conceptual, very abstract, very spacious; a magnetism of a graphical design
that fascinates and pervades the formative journey of Roberto Lalli. “Artifex” of the subject and
color, he leaves the path taken by his loved maestros: Tapies, Butti, Royko, Capogrossi.. as he
himself listens to his “Roman” soul.
A Roman of 7 generations who carries the genes of the Eternal City. His story can be traced back to
a young age when he was always active and committed to the daily restoration of frescoes and
sculptures. His enthusiastic attendance of craftmen’s workshops made him love the instruments
of the arts and revealed to him the alchemy of colors.
Today- soils, metals, pigments, woods, cartouches and fabrics have become narrative elements in
the hands of the craftsman.
For the artist his every opera is a wall; a wall that becomes imaginary where the master leaves the
beholders the freedom to interpret his work according to their emotions.
In this way, the spectator becomes a testimony of an evocative and cathartic journey.
The canvas becomes the door that descends into the darkest and lightest part of his soul, a door
that takes one back from a journey, sometimes rough sometimes celestial, in search of the origin
I WAS BORN IN ROME THE 14TH OF MAY 1957. I HAVE BEEN INTERESTED IN PAITING SINCE I WAS YOUNG, HAVING BEEN INVOLLVED WITH PAINTERS WHO WERE LINKED TO AN INFORMAL PAINING TRADITION. FOR MANY YEARS I WORKED AS A RESTORER ON VARIOUS PROJECTS. DURING THIS PERIOD, I DISCOVERED HOW MUCH I WAS TIED TO INFORMAL PAITING AND EVERYTHING SUROUNDING IT. AND SO, I BEGAN TO WORK HARD IN A STUDIO OF MY VERY OWN. THERE I BEGAN CREATING MULTIMEDIA TECNIQUES, WITH AN IMMENSE SATISFACTION. STILL TODAY, EVERY TIME I CREATE A NEW WORK, EVEN AFTER ALL MY EXPERIENCES, I FEEL A TORMENTING SENSATION, PROMPTED BY THE DESIRE TO SUCCEED AND TO CAPTURE PERFECTLY WHAT I SEE INSIDE OF ME. CREATING MY CANVASES WITH ALMOST AN ECSTATIC PLEASURE, TRYING TO FIND THAT PEACE WHICH CHARACTERIZES THE ACTIVITY OF A MODEST PAINTER LIKE MYSELF.
