Max Papeschi

After an experience as author and director for theatre, Tv and cinema, Max Papeschi starts with digital-art. As figurative artist his approach with Art-World was an immediate success among the critics and the public. His work Politically-Incorrect shows a globalized and consumerist  Society and reveals in a realistic ironical way all the horror of this life style. From the Nazi-Micky Mouse to the Ronald McDonald Butcher the cult icons loose their reassuring effect and change into a collective nightmare.  He has exhibit his works in many galleries around the world. We represent him in China.

In 2014 he published his biography: “How to sell Swastikas and Live Happy” by Sperling & Kupfer (Mondadori Group) and for Giunti Group in December 2018 “Max vs. Max” his last book featuring writer Massimiliano Parente.
