    Using game engines, digital animation, virtual, and augmented reality combined with his drawings and paintings, Federico Solmi creates satirical and clownish portrayals of political leaders, colonial rulers, and explorers absorbed in extravagant and deranged parties; pompous, imperious parades; and theatrical and contrived events. Inspired by ancient mythology, modern myth, and contemporary celebrity culture, Solmi has blended together historical characters and depicts them as ghoulish, self-indulgent, degenerate devotees of the cults of Bacchus and Dionysus concerned only with their own power and influence.

    Through the absurd behavior of Solmi’s characters, The Bacchanalian Ones asks us to question their relevance and the distorted historical narrative that has led to an era of misinformation, corruption, and hypocrisy.
