Spiny Ice Cream is the first digital artwork made by Salvatore Zito, in collaboration with Hesos. Salvatore Zito is a famous painter and for the first time he has worked with digital art. Zito plays with the art of contrast, even something tasty becomes painful. His iconic "Cactus ice cream" from the collection "Leggeri stick spinosi", created in the 90's , is now available in 3d for the first time.
Salvatore Zito lives and works in Turin. He graduated in painting from the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts, where he held the chair of Decoration. Classically trained painter with a spectacular technique, he applies this peculiarity of his to all the artistic experiences that he finds himself going through. Zito works in cycles: Ferraris, Coca-cola, watermelons, tides, still lifes, Spiderman and sticks have gradually populated his works, faced in an ever new way: now with impetuous passion, now with cultured quotes , now with lacerating gestures and expressiveness supported by a rich and intense chromaticity. Salvatore Zito loves to be seduced by the intrinsic beauty of color and uses it to build subtle ironies.
