Carlito Dalceggio: I Don’t Scream for an Audience, I Shout at the Holy

Interview with Canadian artist Carlito Dalceggio for All City Canvas

We had the chance to talk with Canadian artist Carlito Dalceggio about his latest exhibition ‘I Do Not Scream For An Audience, I Shout At The Holy’ at Celaya Brothers Gallery in Mexico City.

He presented a series of rebel, multidisciplinary, profoundly spiritual and symbolic artworks. Butterfly wings, kites, peacock feathers, masks, organic motifs that remind us of Mexican popular art with a peculiar reminiscence of Picasso’s cubism. The explosion of color, the energetic compositions and the liberating gesture of the strokes awaken the senses, the instincts and the imagination.

This short story shows how Carlito sees the world and his creative process demonstrates us that he doesn’t scream for an audience, he shouts at the holy.

Dalceggio reminds us of the bohemians that Balzac and Baudelaire spoke of; those characters with a wandering, nostalgic and cheerful existence, in search of social regeneration; romantic revolutionaries against the system. It is all about escaping from conformity, which is why his work is not conceived as a mise-en-scène to merely entertain an audience, but as a ritual, a cry – of one and all – to liberate our spirits.
