BIO - DALE
Born in Massa (Italy) in 1993 and son to the Art Master Maurizio Fruzzetti, Dale developed a passion for experimenting with colors and imagination at a very early age. Already a Psychological and Social Sciences graduate (2015), in 2017 he specialized in Communications Psychology from University of Padua, moving on to work in Gucci until 2019. The complexity of the contemporary society is the stimulus to embark on a tortuous journey within the human mind, in search of the colour of emotions. He moved gradually towards a personal pictorial research, combining traces of informal art and abstract expressionism with his own emotional and symbolic style. In 2020, as reply of art to the pandemic of COVID-19, he realizes The Walk of Peace, the longest artwork in the world, 5310 meters, gaining the Guinness World Record. His works have been collected in museums, private collections and presented in numerous collective and solo art exhibitions, among which: Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Athens, Rome, Milan, Forte dei Marmi and Venice.

THE WALK OF PEACE
A breaking record artwork for the recovery of Culture
The Walk of Peace with its 5310 meters becomes the longest artwork in the world by a single artist and it is going to enter the prestigious Guinness World Records Book breaking the previous record of 3,3 Km set in the USA.
The Italian seafront, from the jetty of Forte dei Marmi to Massa, City for Peace, has been transformed into a giant colored rainbow with thousands of butterflies on it. A universal message of solidarity and optimism, which deals with different themes: peace and hope to the future, empathy and diversity, culture and environmental sustainability.
From the daily uncertainty raises the artwork The Walk of Peace, a determined message for a positive recovery. I have created a journey into the colors of the rainbow, an immersive experience where people could concretely live a positive dimension. Rainbow is a very simple element that recalls a sense of marvel and wonder. These sensations are into the work also through the lightness of graceful butterflies which fly over fields and oceans of colors. -Dale-
A cascade of bright rainbows painted on canvas shines on the external bastions of the Fortress Fimafede with a message of optimism and hope for the future.
After the realization of the Guinness World Records: the longest painting by an individual, Dale creates a new monumental installation with social emphasis, Kaleidoscope Rain, which is the largest realized by an Italian artist and the biggest in the world on a castle. It is realized by Dale in collaboration with the Ministry of Cultural Heritage – Direzione regionale Musei Liguria and the City of Sarzana.
In the installation, art is the means and the medium of the connection with people, where representations join the simplicity of the creations in a message of hope through a journey in the colors of Peace.
“It is necessary that art is available to the people. We are living in a moment of massive bombardment of information, so I would express a clear and incontrovertible message through art and colors. This means to me: create a deep connection with people and their feelings. The rainbow arises between the shy sunlight and the drops of rain. In this difficult situation we need to be brave, find positivity and hope for the future. This artwork expresses the voice of people through the language of Peace.”
The work is thought to dialogue with the architecture of the Fortress Firmafede, a marvelous place of artistic and cultural events, creating a physical and intellectual interaction with the structure, with the citizens and the passengers who accidentally meet the installation.
Human existence is represented by chromatic relationships that generate structural balances and imbalances through aesthetic stories that blend with the psychic geography of humanity. It is an unfathomable way on a pure rational level to reach a profound feeling that oscillates between the world of consciousness and the invisible.
"Colors becomes the central element in the creative process and allows the expansion beyond the self capturing the relational dimension of the existence in an individual, collective and social emotional expression. -Dale-
Emotional Painting is an artistic mindset, which creates a new way to perceive art through the emotions. The distinctive trait of this style is the kaleidoscopic portrait of the contemporary society. In fact, the subjects are represented mixing introspective elements with the external world. Objects, characters, thoughts and sensations are the elements of a journey in the universe of emotions.
"Art is the voice of creativity. Fluid expression of emotions, sounds, people and stories. Pure vitality. It constitutes the hinge of a universal language, made of different dialects, which bonds human beings and the world the live in. This connection has the force to shape the culture of the society and to be the mouthpiece of the complexity of these heterogeneous voices. We do exist as a community. -Dale-
Experimenta (2019) is a collection of heterogeneous artworks realized to explore new techniques, materials and colors. The common thread of the artworks is the practical research of new ways of visual expression. The colorful realizations joins objects, ideas and words creating an active interaction with the observer.
