About Artan Shalsi
Born in Berat in 1970, in 2003 he moved to Parma, Italy, where he has been living and working ever since. His sculptures and art installations belong to that kind of art that considers form as a simple identity. Geometry and linear volume mark the basis of his work; they lose balance until known perceptions are completely transformed. The artist is interested in paving a way towards opportunities for new identities.
