The collection of Self-Portraits by Adalberto Abbate focuses on the individual and society. The photograph appears torn from the inside, a reflection of the person's identity which is ripped apart. The individual looks confused at society and at himself and can't tell where the truth is anymore, the lines between good and evil have disappeared.
Adalberto Abbate is a Sicilian artist born in Palermo in 1975. He is a versatile artist and his works ranges from photography to sculpture as well as Street Art. He currently lives and works in Palermo.
The common theme in all his work is a deep sociological and anthropological interest, as well as a political one. The artist carefully observes everything that surrounds him, men and society, and represents what he sees in his artworks through a disenchanted and cynical realism.
