Angela Carruba Pintaldi is well-known for her jewel-sculptures torn from the earth and the sky, made of raw, precious stones and meteorites, for her large paintings made of pigments clumped on canvas, for her exciting installations, but also for her being an all-round artist, the central character of each of her works. After a long artistic pause, she returns to MyOwnGallery with an exhibition showing her latest works accompanied by stunning photos by Giovanni Gastel that reveal her many identities.

"Angela", an exhibition staged at MyOwnGallery in Superstudio Più from March 8th to 20th 2022 in Milan, is a story of and about Angela in her different identities, and it wants to be, first of all, a tale about who Angela really is in her different realities as an Artist.

The inauguration of the Atelier Lucchini is the last stage, yet the most important, of an artistic path that has been carefully created through the buildings of Superstudio, a path to welcome visitors and professionals in a surprising environment.

The history of Superstudio is strictly related to contemporary art, as much as it is related to fashion and design as well, three disciplines that mutually benefit from this proximity in an endless circle of mutual contamination.This relation between Superstudio and art is not just limited to temporary contents brought by the various seasons of events and happenings, but thanks to the vision of the founders Flavio Lucchini and Gisella Borioli it has been built a permanent system...


We gladly publish this beautiful story by the journalist and blogger Angus James MacDonald from his RETRO MODERMISM site. This video provides evidence that the new Flavio Lucchini’s "personal fashion/art museum" has definitely enriched the artistic and cultural contents of Superstudio Più, by opening a mysterious space and a new path for art and beauty in the area. FlavioLucchiniArt’s atelier association and museum hosts hundreds of artworks by Lucchini, the Superstudio founder, as an artist, being a new fixture with creativity, adding to the other cultural spaces clustered in Via Tortona: Armani/Silos, MyOwnGallery, Base, Mudec...


What are the origins of sculptures? According to Flavio Lucchini it certainly arises from an idea that turns into a sketch, than into a design, materializing itself in a painting, eventually occupying the space in its three dimensions. The exhibition “FLAVIO LUCCHINI: PAINTINGS & MORE” in MyOwnGallery (Superstudio’s gallery) illustrates this path behind Toys sculptures. The photos have been taken by Angelica Cantù Rajnoldi, a young photographer of great sensivity. There are also other paintings, never exposed to the public, and small sculptures in addition to an immaterial experience to live with your own smartphone. 

Paintings: only the soul of dresses Switching from the graphics of his first works to the art-direction of fashion magazines, he was stunned by the change of the femininity ideal...


I've always thought that women, except for a very few lucky ones, are not given the place they deserve. I have always thought that their disposability and concreteness, combined with other qualities not lacking to capable men and women, could be an added value for those who hold the levers of power in their hands. Without feminist ulterior motives, political judgments or claims of quotas for women, I can only be pleased to see that the pool of women who are now moving the levers of the European Union, Ursula von der Leyen, Christine Lagarde, Angela Merkel, not to mention those just a step below, they are making human and indispensable decisions, also revising treatises and preconceptions. If something is moving at the top is this the signal that now it's up to women?

I've always thought that creativity has no gender, but that of women also has a special sensitiveness and a boost to decoration of its own.
I have always thought that with so many graduates top of their class in polytechnics and art academies, there's no match in the number of professionals known for their talent...


The first of the projects dedicated to female creativity including art, design, architecture and craftsmanship which will reach its peak during the April Design Week with a completely dedicated pavilion, starts in MyOwnGallery.

"Nelle Mani delle Donne" ("In Women's Hands") - a title that says it all - aims to investigate, lightly, carefully, with irony, with foresight, into the world of creativity and begins with two small but significant exhibitions in MyOwnGallery, the Superstudio gallery always open to challenges, trends, new languages. Established artists and architects and young creatives talk about themselves with their work and a talk in the evenings dedicated during the exhibition time...


After the exhibition in MyOwnGallery in 2019 that marks his return in Italy after 30 years, the Korean artist Kim Seung Hwan is designing a great installation of monumental sculptures and a furniture collection that we will see during Milan Design Week 2021, at the Superdesign Show which continues its museum-like contaminations. From August 22, however, a new solo show in Udine.

You began your artistic career in the 90’s, in Pietrasanta. You won the Critic Award during the very first edition of MiArt. How has this all-Italian beginning influenced you?
I was inspired and influenced by the works of modern Italian sculptors. While I was working in the atelier in Pietrasanta, I met several International and Italian artists and I am pleased to have seen some of the finest marble works. I was also excited about thinking of Michelangelo working in the same place as me...

“I am 50. Hard for me to believe it, I say this because I’m still the same, I still have my Dodgers baseball cap, coloured hands... I still get excited when I am given a new Hot Wheels as a present, I still get emotional when I look back at photos of my friends who have gone away too soon; this is the spirit that guided me up to now and it’s the same one that brought me back to MyOwnGallery of Superstudio, with my solo exhibition...”. “THE PIECE (PEACE) MAKER” it is not just an exhibition, but a celebration of “Underground Culture” by Milanese artist Flycat, an indisputable forefather of the first generation of Writing and Hip Hop culture in Italy. To celebrate his 50th birthday and 36 years of artistic career, 100 art works including paintings, sculptures, drawings, and much more, narrate the story and philosophy of the ..
Artist, sculptor, cultural businessman, and over the last ten years, designer, it is hard to define Kim Seung Hwan in only one discipline. “Organismi & Harmonie” presents a hybrid collection between sculpture and design, thus defining the new aesthetic direction taken by the artist. The exhibition curated by Martina Corgnati, highlights artifices and nature, modernism and archaism that reconnect to the geometric and mathematical laws and underlines the impeccable control by Korean sculptor of plastic materials, from bronze to polystyrene up to stone. Kim Seung Hwan begins his career in the nineties at Pietrasanta where he attends the Carrara Accademy, and then continue his journey in Asia. In 2008, together with his wife Lanki Jung, he founded, on the outskirts of Seoul, the large centre for contemporary art Dio Art Center that..

"Man on the Moon” exhibition will be the protagonist in June, it recalls the Ghost Book theme, a new editorial and multimedia project on Italian art photography, founded by Giorgio Racca. Pier Paolo Pitacco, art-director and well-known artist at Superstudio for his numerous collaborations, in charge of graphics and contents explains: “Ghost presents original and uncommon stories, alternating great names and emerging young ones. The number 5 volume, just like the exhibition, is indeed dedicated to the 50th anniversary since the Moon landing. About ten authors describe their personal vision of the satellite with their photographs. An evocative and fascinating exhibition and a step to create a community that shares research of quality and that finds itself in a class publication”. 


If the exhibition arranged by Oroblù, lingerie and hosiery leader, was meant to celebrate its thirty years in collaboration with Giovanni Gastel and Flavio Lucchini that resulted in an exhibition combining the photographer’s magical clics with the art work splendours by the artist, just finished in MyOwnGallery, is to a book curated by Gisella Borioli, that Oroblù asks to immortalize the magical encounter and thank all those who have contributed and participated to the success of the company and event. “Inspiration” is a precious publication, with golden cover, in limited edition, presents inside a little slipcase, that marks a new Oroblù path towards palpable renovation and placement in the highest and most yearned for category of the market. With works by Lucchini and famous poets’ quotes that highlight the feminine beauty.
