Born in Bergamo in 1980.
He received his degree in sculpture with honors from the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, Milan.
Through the use of different media and expressive languages the artistic research of Dario Tironi refers to particular themes and problems that characterize contemporary society as the ecological implications and consequences of human activity on the environment, global imbalances, the contradictions of a social arrangement based on capitalist and consumerist ideology, the alienation of the human being entangled in existential individualism.
Overall his work appears tense in the difficult balance between a candid and “new realist” participation in the invasive materiality of our times and a sort of ideal and melancholy tension, though balanced by a lively aesthetic, towards the search for a harmony that could be called classical.
In his artistic practice he uses a multitude of heterogeneous materials, often taken from everyday life, found objects and waste materials, products of the contemporary “Era della plastica”: accessories, technological devices, toys and dolls, household appliances and ornaments, gadgets of every type and mass products. The use of this material, as an element characterizing its original stylistic code, assumes an intrinsic value as a tangible product of our society and the objects, loaded with symbolism and reminiscences, acquire the ability to describe the cultural identity and the aesthetic taste but also, precisely by virtue of their obsolescence, the futile desires and induced needs.
He has exhibited in numerous collective and personal exhibitions, his works are present in public and private collections in Italy and abroad, as well as permanently at the Museum of science and technology Leonardo Da Vinci in Milan and Il Vittoriale degli Italiani in Gardone .
