I have been in love with these famous bricks since I was a child and today I realise how immortal they are. Their beauty also lies in the the fact that they manage to make other 1980s toys immortal. That’s the purpose of my work. This is the stimulus that led me to create my “Alter Ego” works with toys from the 1980s. I wish I could make everyone jump back in time and see our old toys in a different and almost immortal way. From this starting point I also carried out new experiments with new inclusions.

These are the words with which Alessandro Piano describes his work.

The step immediately after the creation of Alter Ego resin works was photography and the creation of prints on PET.

Print on PET with signature on the front, stamp and signature with work name and serial number on the back.

The number in the photos may not be that of the auction.

Shipped in a reinforced tube.
