Christian Calabro is an artist based in New York. He is well known for his advanced technique in collage art and has held a solo exhibition not only in the United States but also in Switzerland and Denmark. Although he fully uses digital technology, Christian also collects paper material from all over the world, emphasizing the importance of production in analogue.
Christian’s mix of Swiss and Italian influences his art production. “The Italian part of myself enjoys working with new, unpredictable work, and the Swiss part of me understand’s shapes and functions and shaping works.” Christian loves using vintage photos in some of his artwork. “To me, it feels a bit like a match made in heaven. I love using vintage material in my collages, so being approached to create something commemorating HOPPY using some of their vintage imagery was very exciting.”
