ANDREA GALAD: A MACABRE AND EROTIC VISUAL STYLE

Love and Death, Eros and Tanathos, the evergreen center of Galad's research; the balance and the fight between the two and the final fusion, where loving and losing means the same thing. This combination of forces keeps molding the artist's life unmercifully, making him develop a macabre and erotic visual style, filled with beautiful monsters and intense emotions.

ANDREA GALAD: A MACABRE AND EROTIC VISUAL STYLE

Andrea Galad is an Italian photographer and professional dancer, now living and working as visual artist and choreographer in Berlin, since 2014. Galad began photographing in 2009 with a modest reflex, a white wall as a background, a window as a source of light, and friends improvised as models; all simple elements enhanced by peculiar influences such greek mythology and victorian literature; a deep visceral connection with classical sculpture and constant love for art history shaped him and his artworks in a Neo-Romantic artist that speaks about Love and Death.

Love and Death, Eros and Tanathos, the evergreen center of Galad's research; the balance and the fight between the two and the final fusion, where loving and losing means the same thing. This combination of forces keeps molding the artist's life unmercifully, making him develop a macabre and erotic visual style, filled with beautiful monsters and intense emotions.

Through his work, Galad wants to sensitize those people terrified by "bad" feelings, showing them that loss and grief are part of life as much as love and beauty. Galad showcases beauty of the human form and utilizes his heart to explore sexuality, challenging your identity and gender labels; his aim is to raise awareness surrounding nudity censorship and social taboos.
