Biography
 
Brothers Boldrin
 
The studio of Sergio and Massimo has, since 1984, been offering authentic masks worked in a centuries-old craft of papier-mâché. The two artists create their artwork by shaping the glue and paper mixture into a clay mold, allowing it to harden, and then applying paint and gold leaf to the front and fabric to the back. 
 
This technique has survived for centuries and achieved great expression in the Commedia dell’Arte, which thrived for 200 years, beginning in the 16thcentury. Many carnival revelers still cloak themselves in the garb of the 400-year-old characters, whose names evoke the colorful world of comedic tradition: Brighella, Pulcinella, Arlecchino, Capitano and Pantalone.
 
The brothers’ work has not only gained notoriety in Europe, but in international fashion design, in Shakespeare festivals worldwide, and in film. In fact, their theatrical masks played a central role in the Stanley Kubrick movie “Eyes Wide Shut”.
 
They create unique pieces that have been embellished with original oil and tempera paints and offer them exclusively through Galerie Elektra in Sausalito, California.
