G8 / 750 Stars, the vault of heaven
Three ingredients, distilled from the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua, Mario Pasqualotto used for the project G8 / 750 stars. The ultramarine color blue, the almond shape and the symbol of the star.

G8 / 750 Stars, the vault of heaven

He has translated the work of Giotto, which completely painted the chapel in 1300, into the 21st century, full of symbolism and poetic beauty.

The fact that Pasqualotto uses symbols and colors and art works from the past is not new. His work can be recognized by symbolism, idols, concepts and meanings. He has previously unraveled Monet and investigates mortality on the basis of materials and textures.

For this project the immediate cause was the death of his father from Italy. In early 2014, Pasqualotto visited the Scrovegni chapel in Padua and translated the impression that this has made on him into a series of works that are very poetic.
The shape of the chapel, the symbolism of Christianity, the 750 stars in the roof of the chapel, the color blue and gold, everything can be traced back to the work of Giotto.

Pasqualotto is an internationally known artist with a long list of exhibitions worldwide. His work has been recorded in museums and private collections around the world.
