All Art is Political by Giuseppe Stampone’s Craftsmanship

Conceptual artist Giuseppe Stampone admits he is “neither a draughtsman nor a painter”, preferring instead the epithet “intelligent photocopier”. And must say copy he does, prolifically, appropriating ephemeral images from the internet, iconic pictures from pop culture and works of classical art, and transferring them to paper using a ballpoint pen. It is a minucious and painstaking process that nevertheless elicits physical pleasure.

By transcribing their content in excruciating detail, Stampone is challenging the meaning of the original images, but more than that, he is manifesting political action: by stretching out time, the artist is purposefully disobeying the speed of the digital age we live in.

Drawing from his own experiences, Stampone’s work tackles an array of international social and political issues such as immigration and colonialism, placing ethical commitment before aesthetics and political activism before neutrality in order to take a stance.
