Affreschi Pietro Gaeta by antoniolupi
Affreschi Pietro Gaeta
The FRESCO PAINTINGS’ project developed from a collaboration between antoniolupi and Pietro Gaeta, a designer that for years has personally researched the surfaces and the decoration for the bathroom.
This project changed the wall in a painting thanks to a new technology, which allows to transfer a drawing on a surface.
The technology used for this project is very recent and it was refined in the last few months. The decoration is obtained through transfer paper. With this method, the pigments of the drawing in the computer seep directly through the pores of the plaster (rough cement, scratched plaster, unrefined walls, plaster board, surfaces with visible bricks, etc.), as it happens in the traditional fresco technique.
The application is simple, quick and odour free thanks to the use of substances based on water. After the coat of the clinging primer by qualified persons on the surface to decorate, the product takes 30 minutes to become active. Then, the decoration can be applied (a space of about 20 sqm means 8 working hours).
The application is easy, thus the fresco paintings can be adapted to any space, from walls to ceilings, from vaults to domes.
AFFRESCHI is a sustainable project since it does not use chemical glues and it does not modify the features of the surfaces where it is applied. It is transpiring, environment-friendly, it can be used with the best paintings, lacquers and facings available for sale.
The AFFRESCHI collection of antoniolupi is inspired by the Michelangelo’s David. A contemporary and hedonist David, symbol of beauty, force and vigour. The graphics glean from collective imagination drawings, often related to the past.
The decorations presented at the fear are: Flower, Strip and Tomorrow, in different colours. Each can be custom made and adapted to the dimensions of the wall. The collection will widen in the future with other different decorations.
All the graphics presented are characterized by a high degree of blend between different styles: stripes, weave, damask fabrics, brocade, Victorian decorative arts, artistic pieces typical of Renaissance, details of bright crystals, numerical matrixes and words pronounced in the time.
All in a amalgam of figures without time, which can be adapted to any house.
Designer: Pietro Gaeta
