In this series of 'In the studio', we interview Italian artist Antonio Signorini after his first solo exhibition in the UAE at the Oblong Contemporary Gallery in Bluewaters Island. Antonio Signorini began an in-depth study of primitive art in 2003. His interest has focused on the study of the most important archaeological sites and with particular interest in the Libyan, Saudi and Iraqi caves and on the finds at the inside them. The discovery of new caves in Europe then led Signorini to delve further into his research and work to recreate in the sculptural form, the drawings represented inside these caves, giving back one modern interpretation that connects today's man to his past.
