One of the greatest European writers, Alessandro Ferri alias Dado (1975) is characterized by a strong theoretical approach to his expressive means: as can be seen from his written research entitled “ The style according to Dado”, intending Writing both artistic discipline and poetic of the street. His stroke is recognizable for the personal style that he utilizes, labyrinthine geometric solids and sinuous bands intertwined together, of which proportions are based on the harmonious spatial relationship that the golden ratio produces.
Dado’s style appears deeply “Italian”, with an approach that tends to the rational analysis of the technique: even the virtuosity allow to glimpse a natural tension towards to the introspection of the graphic sign, feature traceable in many Italian art of yesterday and today.
