The painting represents a bizarre and provocative still life with celery and two pears on a cushion, all with unreal colors and unnatural combinations.

Painting of great decorative effect, which expresses the aesthetics of 1970s, a period of great experimentation in Florence.

The author, artist Andrea Chiarantini (born 1951), at the time of creation of these paintings was a student at the Faculty of Architecture in Florence.

The painting, which ironically and with great decorative sense juxtaposes incompatible objects, reveals the provocative spirit of the Florentine movements of the 1970s. (Ufo, Archizoom, Superstudio groups). The young architect at the time will certainly have been infected by innovative ideas on design.

In the heart of Florence in the 1970s, Radical Architecture became a spokesperson for innovative and often provocative design.

The design objects created during this period were ironic and innovative, functional in surprising ways, and designed to challenge traditional conventions, serving as a critique of consumer society. Radical design opposed the advance of Rationalism, preferring projects that were the expression of an alternative culture, often eccentric and unconventional.

The bright colors, inspired by Pop Art, reflected the revolutionary spirit and energy of the movement, while the bold use of color served to capture attention and communicate strong messages.

Finally, the stylistic of Radical Architecture was a blend of influences, ranging from utopian visions of future cities to critical and experimental reinterpretations of everyday objects. This period of great experimentation aimed to break with the past, creating objects and spaces that were tangible manifestations of radical ideals and theories.
