Jacopo Pagin is an Italian artist who lives and works in Brussels. He graduated in Painting and Decoration from the Accademia di Belle Arti of Venice. In 2018 he obtained his Master's degree in Fine Arts at Luca school of arts in Brussels. Painting plays a privileged role in its practice, it is often combined with sound and poetry through performance within theatrical-looking environments. The Belgian-based artist has made a name for himself as a painter with exceptional technical skills. Starting out from a series of uncannily figurative but wildly imaginative paintings in the surrealist tradition, Pagin uses his paintings as building blocks for artistic installations that conjure up images of a previously unimagined, solitary universe through a combination of ambient soundscapes and visually shattering imagery. Walking through Pagin’s painterly installations, the visitor is invited to engage with the lushly painted figures.
