Matteo Mezzetta

is a French painter. He lives and works in Lyon, France.

“The tales of ordinary routine of Matteo Mezzetta are spread onto homogenous backdrops, where everything is black and white, as in the film noir of the Thirties and Forties. New York, London, Paris and milan are simply an urban horizon against which moments of daily existence take place, captured using two photographic shots which, in the hyper-realistic transcription onto canvas,, allow a double focus on the image as regards both the figures in the frontline and the environment behind them.The vital fux and dynamism of modern life are transferred into a fictitious, cinematic reality, with a retro flavour, accentuated by the grey filter of the shot, that all restore a shade of mystery and suspense to the situations as if this anonymous turning of the screws was hiding the signs of a Hitchcok storyline.”—Chiara Canali
