The painter Meloniski was born in Villacidro in 1943.
Completely self-taught, the Sardinian artist moved to Paris in 1969, then to Milan. He travelled all over Europe and visited the most important museums to study the classics and avant-garde artists.
He currently lives and works in the Lodi area, where Meloniski devotes himself mainly to sculpture in marble, bronze and wood, alongside painting and ceramics.
One cannot separate Meloniski the artist from Meloniski the craftsman. The artist ferments his imagery, polarising its integral symbolism; equally, the craftsman controls the primal elements inherent in the material.
Close to organic drives, to the instincts of tactility, Meloniski has developed the three tracks of his research: sculpture, ceramics and painting.
His sculpture was the knowledge of stone, wood and metal (the three elements of the earth); his ceramics exercised the plastic sense on soft and transmutative matter (water and fire); his painting, finally, involved the elaboration of a mixed technique all based on the expressiveness of colour (air).
Since 1991, Meloniski has felt the need to take a break from sculpture; lighter materials, possibilities for play and invention. The material led him to use soft, handmade paper supports. Here are acrylics, tempera, India ink. But the sensory experience continues with sand, fabric fragments, purple, synthetic gold dust. It is a feast of liberated matter, freed from the compulsions of use. We are faced with a well-distilled sensory 'patchwork'. This is the condition for the perceptive concept to express the emotional factor. The magic of myth.
The paintings by Meloniski from Villacidro evoke dreamy atmospheres, in which reality is transfigured into a surrealist fairytale scenario: characters float in the sky playing their instruments, fish ply the sleeping cities, kites soar among the stars.
Meloniski from Villacidro's unique works and silkscreens are very popular with the public, so the Sardinian artist's prices are rising.
