OSCAR MASCHERA motto is "Freedom is beauty: because quality of life is also a spiritual condition". It is not easy to think about beautiful things when you are forced to live among neglected objects and in oppressive places, and yet beautiful things are not always more difficult or even impossible to obtain. The artist, in order to execute the objects conceived, becomes an artisan and performs eternal, simple gestures, materialising, in an ancient material such as leather, his and the designer’s abstractions. Succeeding in giving form to ideas, making charming, useful things: this is the magic of Oscar and he achieves it by offering objects which, whilst in new forms, always recall a familiar function.
