Marshall Vernet
Marco Lupi


Marshall Vernet's photography has been influenced by his love for French cinema and early European black and white imagery.
His black and white photographs have a dark strength to them that combine the look of a charcoal drawing and a classic film noir.

He also traveled the world finding images and locations for Hollywood feature films and commercials. He worked very closely with Tony Scott as a location consultant on such films as "Déjà Vu" with Denzel Washington, "The Fan" with Robert De Niro and Wesley Snipes, "Enemy of the State" with Will Smith and Gene Hackman, and "Domino" with Keira Knightley and Mickey Rourke.
This experience combined with ten years as a commercial director himself has manifested into a collection of very striking and powerful black and white photographs which seem to have one foot in the world of classic photographic imagery and the other in a contemporary world of computerised stylings.
Marshall Vernets's works are on show with CasaGalleria.ART, a young and dynamic art gallery in Ticino at Art International Zurich from 13 to 16 of October at Zurich Convention Center.

Yuri Catania is an Italian-Swiss artist. He began his career as a photographer in the field of fashion and luxury. He has been traveling the world for over 15 years with his New York based photography production house. At the same time, the deepest photographer's satisfactions and emotions come from his intimate research that catches hidden feelings among the particulars, a keen look that captures the great messages of small things, far from the refined luxury sparkle.
The turning point came in 2013 when the curator Rene Julien Praz noticed his works and invited him to exhibit in Paris first at the Palais de Tokyo and then, at the Perrotin Gallery in 2015 in two collectives "Art Is Hope". He continues a path of international exhibitions. Today photography for him is a means of expression and not an end. He creates mixed media art works where he experiments with the use of different materials and forms of language.
His mind is FULL OF BAD IDEAS 🤟

Marco Lupi is a Ticino artist, was born in Balerna in 1958 and lives in Mendrisio. He's renowned all over in Switzerland, French, Germany, and worldwide in cities like London. His paintings speak for him, a sensitive and introverted artist who, through painting, manages to express with strength and character the most intimate part of his life and the feelings related to objects and people who have had a significant role for him.
Marco Lupi paints strange worlds on canvas in sizes 150 cm x 200 cm. Characters with eclectic anatomy, women, and men are full of meaning and become recurring elements in his works. In Lupi's stories, other objects return as a dog, vehicles, and various ordinary things, all in a strongly dreamlike atmosphere.
His art strikes due to the expression of a dual world between dream and reality. Many of his artworks take inspiration from his imagination that he translates onto canvas through painting. At the same time, the truth influences the author who paints to express what is the story of his most intimate family circle.
Marco Lupi's paintings are full of history and emotions. Intense and authentic, the result of a life where the ideals and the good ones represent the true wealth by the author who has the noblest and kindest soul.
There is another element that makes Lupi's paintings magnetic, and it is their three dimensionality. The author signs his artworks by insertion with coloured fabric pieces in the acrylic paste so that the color becomes even more material to amplify his message and make it even more authentic. Marco Lupi's works are on show with CasaGalleria.ART, a young and dynamic art gallery in Ticino at Art International Zurich at Zurich Convention Center.

« Art does not reproduce what is visible, but it makes visible what is not always visible. » - Marco Lupi

Pierre Pellegrini (1968 in Sorengo) had specialised in architectural design and then realised his dream of becoming a sports teacher. During this professional development, he continued to devote himself to photography.
For him, photography is a wonderful means of communicating and at the same time conveying emotions to the viewer. Pellegrini is not quite sure whether it is he himself who is looking for the subjects or whether it is the subjects who are looking for him. But whenever such an encounter takes place, an image emerges that perfectly suits him and his personality.


Veronica Barbato (1981, Caserta) is an artist based in Lugano and Reggio Emilia, MA in Photography with Mustafa Sabbagh at Spazio Labó (Bologna, Italy).
Creator and organizer of independent exhibitions, blitz in villas before renovation, with international and Italian artists. Photography is the medium that accompanies her in most of her projects, but theater and dance have been the fundamental aspects of her personal and artistic formation.

Theater has educated her in performativity, an aspect present in each of her artistic projects, particularly those related to street art, where even the spectators, unknowingly, mingle with her actions.
Her improvisation and resourcefulness, inherited from her theatrical experience, are not only manifested in her artistic practice: these are indispensable in her activity as an organizer of events, which focus on the dissemination and appreciation of art, her own and that of others.
