Jacopo Pagin’s enthralling paintings are deeply grounded in art history in the multitude of influences they explore, yet highly idiosyncratic and contemporary in their execution. The elongated figures and objects, delicate tones and uncanny, haunting beauty of the compositions echo past artistic periods, such as the Mannerist sophistication of the end of the 16th century, the ornamentation of mid-18th century Rococo and the dreamy, grandiose Neoclassicism of the 1930s.
Jacopo Pagin (b. 1988, Italy) is a painter, installation artist, and sculptor living and working in Brussels, Belgium. Pagin graduated with a degree in painting and decoration in 2013 from the Accademia di Belle Arti, Venice and received his MFA in Fine Arts from LUCA School of Arts, Brussels in 2018. Pagin’s work has been shown in curatorial projects by Germano Celant, Alessandra Franetovich, Carola Cometto, and Emanuelle Luciani. His work is currently the subject of a solo presentation at Make Room Los Angeles, US and has been widely shown internationally, including at Everyday Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium; CB32, Milan, Italy; Castella Malaspina di Massa Carrara, Italy; Manifesta XIII, Marseille, France; HVW8, Berlin, Germany; Chalton Gallery, London, UK; and The Hole, New York, US.
