Tonino Mattu is an Italian artist who currently lives and works in Oristano, Sardinia.
Tonino Mattu's painterly practice is based on the relation between reality and fiction, oscillating between figuration and dissolution into abstraction. His motifs focus in particular on socio-historically relevant themes from the history of the 20th century and contemporary (socio-) political events. Heterogeneous elements are removed from their original temporal and local context and recombined. Tonino Mattus works can be found in private collections worldwide.
