Exhibiting Artist: Harti
With both Italian and German heritage, marrying and raising a family in Scotland before moving to Jersey, The British Isles, Harti has spent his life observing and studying the diversity and history of cultures and lifestyles both from a religious, political and societal perspective.

A qualified clinical and neuro psychologist (University of Zurich), Harti is also a composer and animator. His life-long professional interests and sustained learning have culminated in an electrifying, truth-telling series of artworks expressed on vast canvasses that capture and question the sense and meaning of life, God and belief systems, consciousness vs nothingness, our insignificance in the universe and quintessentially our lost self.
Harti’s practice typifies the modernist pop art movement, with a nod towards the pre-Baroque Tenebrism style for heightened dramatic effect.
Harti’s aim is to stimulate self auscultation, engage self-archaeology, question every day absurdities and challenge the viewer to peel back layers of their own mind, while combining it with the need to entertain.
