Biography

Lello Esposito lives and works between Naples and New York and he is well known throughout Italy and abroad. Sculptor and painter for more than thirty years, he is interested in Naples and its symbols – Pulcinella, the mask, the egg, the skull, the volcano, the horse, San Gennaro and the horn – in their various stages of metamorphosis in contemporary terms. Lello Esposito considers himself as a “cult artist”- an emblematic artist who blends tradition and a new personal style making new artistic forms. For his sculptures and installations he uses various types of materials – bronze and aluminum – and paints large canvases. Occasionally he has illustrated Neapolitan editions of classics like Pinocchio (Grimaldi & C. Editori, 1997), Alice’int’ ‘o Paese d’ ‘e Maraveglie (Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Franco Di Mauro Editore, 2002),‘Na Cantata ‘e Natale (A Christmas Carol, Franco Di Mauro Editore, 2006).
