After his experience as an author and director for theatre, TV, and cinema, Papeschi began with digital art. As a figurative artist his approach was an immediate success among the critics and public. His work, Politically Incorrect, shows a globalized and consumerist society and reveals in a realistic ironic way all the horror of this lifestyle. From the Nazi Mickey Mouse to the Ronald McDonald butcher, these cult icons lose their reassuring effect and change into a collective nightmare.
