Roberto Coda Zabetta is an artist that finds his strength in the power of action and in the use of the black and white colours that reports a pictorial wisdom. He’s a clever artist with the ability to associate faraway cultures and geographies with iconographies and worlds as if it wold be the one and only. He has a flooring and uncomfortable contemporary sensibility, for the burning themes and the disenchantment that is not blent, it’s clear in every artworks.
