This monograph contains an interview to the artist edited by young critic Ivan Quaroni and a short story by Italian renowned writer Tiziano Scarpa. Thanks to a rich iconographic section, the book presents the voluminous works of this talented representative of the Videogame Art.

For many years the Milanese artist Mauro Ceolin has translated and rewritten images with a technique that is the evolution of traditional painting. Inspired by Pop Art aesthetics, Ceolin analyzes the amount of information surrounding us and selects a series of images to be visually filtered using the vectorial drawing technique. These subjects are taken from the ultra-realistic world of natural catastrophes, from the cybernetic and mass-media environment of videogames and music, from the visual reconstruction of the headquarters of worldwide multimedia majors such as Sony, Google, Oracle, and Intel and from the world of comics. Ceolin uses his deliberately flat style to underline the topicality of various genres often considered obsolete, like portraiture or landscape painting.
