Taiwanese artist Michael Lin has gained international recognition for his large-scale painted walls and floors reproducing the floral motifs typical of the domestic textile tradition of Taiwan. Lin was born in Tokyo in 1964 and lives and works in Taiwan and Paris and regularly exhibits in Asia, Europe and the United States.

Each collection contains a set of 6 Espresso Cups

Max Petrone tells us six tales, with a painting technique using coffee that develops without any pre-planned design, but with an immediacy where “the first attempt is always good”. There are no complex frameworks or sophisticated elaborations, only simplicity & playfulness. In this collection, multiple characters take form in a story that starts almost by chance and lends itself to the interpretation of the beholder. The protagonists of Max Petrone’s tales are adventurously searching for something, exploring their worlds to find it, each with their own path to follow. For their stories to continue, they need the time and the imagination of the people who have caught a piece of them, perhaps as they sipped their coffee. Each cup carries with it the trace of a tale told by the artist, suggesting characters and settings, inviting everyone to contribute to the narrative, in a dialogue that is refreshing & sincere.

Massimiliano Petrone was born in Turin in 1983 and is one of the most innovative figures in contemporary Italian painting. His work brings together a variety of techniques, constantly experimenting with new styles using oil paint, spray cans and acrylics. His work also extends to graphics, video and a reconsideration of design objects. In 2015, after the success of his live painting, he began his collaboration with illy at the Coffee Cluster for the Milan Expo. This performance has now been revisited with the new illy Art Collection, that is born from a splash of coffee animated with the graphic touch typical of underground comics.
