Stefano Cescon is an emerging talent based in Venice (Italy), mostly known for his works with multiple layers of colored wax, which sit in between sculpture and painting. His recent research is based on the dialectical relationship between specular elements: the balance between surface forces (lateral and frontal) and the tonal passages. Where the shape is constrained or contained in a geometric structure, the wax acts as a counterpart capable of restoring softness and expressiveness to the final result.
He was born Pordenone in 1989, currently lives and works in Venice.
