Malleus is an artistic collective devoted to rock music and to its historical image inventory, born in Italy at the beginning of the new century.
Malleus is three headed omnivore creature.
The iconography at the base of their work originates from a vast scenery including figurative arts, in particular Expressionism and Symbolism, Art Nouveau and Surrealism, Pop Art and Psychedelic Art, and also comics, photography, cinema and literature.
All these ingredients blend in with the main element of their poetics; that is the female form, the primordial goddess, from whom everything comes.
Malleus is Dark Nouveau.
Even in its own small way, Malleus represents an anachronistic and non-logical exception, in a Country that seems to have put aside child dreams, creativity and cultural independence which are suffocated by a media subculture that infects every stratum of society from above.
