This month we welcome Italian artist Mario Loprete to the Mad swirl Gallery and boy, are we excited to have him! With a featured collection in both paint and concrete, Loprete seems to have stories within himself that we can’t help but want to listen to. The cement works fit to the shape of his shirts and feel historic, like ancient artifacts, and his paintings carry a certain deepness with them that set them apart from your average portrait. We’re not sure exactly what Mario’s work is trying to tell us just yet…all we know is that we’re listening. He’s got our attention! And we think you oughta give him yours. ~ Madelyn Olson
