Mattia Biagi

Mattia Biagi is an Italian artist who did a series of tar sculptures that play with the idea of childhood objects losing their innocence. Among the collection, in addition to teddy bears, Mickey Mouses, and musical instruments, are a few fairy tale images. Dark and creepy, that Red Riding Hood image is definitely one that grabs your attention:

"Stay Out of My Closet"
(6 feet tall!)

"Before Midnight I"
fiberglass covered in tar
"Before Midnight"

"Den of Iniquity"


  1. Tar? I hate to make this joke, but . . . lets hope that ol' Brer Rabbit stays away from this exhibition.
