EMANUELE GIUSTO KANTFISH
«I like to place these art images in the spaces of daily life or exhibitions, to generate an immediate impact that inspires to break away in an intimate seduction that induces to dream»
Kantfish, Emanuele Giusto, is an Italian visual artist who works with images, videos, films and writing. He observes reality by questioning everything. For him, reality does not exist without an observer. In his artworks the “real” becomes something inspiring “more than real”.
