Mattia Biagi Tar Skull Bust

Mattia Biagi

Not long after graduating art and design school in Milan Mattia Biagi arrived in Los Angeles. He was immediately impressed by one of the city’s most famous landmarks, the La Brea Tar Pits, which became the influence for his initial body of work in the U.S.

“I was intrigued with tar as a medium and how it illuminates and highlights objects in a very esoteric and ethereal sense.” – Mattia Biagi

The mix of a traditional Italian background with life in America has made quite an impact on his creative process.

In this new body of work, Biagi explores through multi-media forms the desire to make tangible a belief in supernatural causality and its cultural nuances.

By traversing abstract sculpture, video, painting, photography and performance he will investigate human emotional reaction to physical objects that have superstitious associations.
