His research is based in advance on an inclusive approach to the whole history of art and the exploration of perceptual interference. He works with natural materials of mineral origin (graphite - copper - bronze) vegetable (phytolacca - coal - ash - ganpi paper - oil), from which he obtains intense and veiled colours and hues. Over the years, Mariconti has studied and studied in-depth, as well as pictorial research that places him firmly in the panorama of contemporary art, expressive research in the sculptural field that is based on the exploration of the expressive potential of lost wax bronze, an ancient technique that carries out a primary role in the evolution of human civilisation.
