“The paintings of Omar Canzi arise from informal impulse typical of many past artistic movements that have experienced the abolition of figuration in favor of a more clear and direct expression. The expressive impulse translates directly into colors and overlay materials, in a creative flow in which, together with the elements of subjectivity, also includes suggestions of the substrate urban artist. There are thus works that leaves no room to figuration, able to achieve a strong and direct communication, thanks to a mixture and a synthesis of colors, materials and residues of graffiti. em> ”
