Join us to celebrate the Art of the Mask and kick-off Mardi Gras with Sea Funk Brass Band as we parade through the East Village Arts District!
Sergio started to create masks as a teen: and he became a promoter of the Venetian Carnival and his works to be appreciated and exported worldwide, making him a famous mask artist and a favorite of the movie industry.
Innovative yet faithful to the Venetian mask-making tradition, Sergio has always opted for a handmade papier-mache process dating to the XIII century.
Sergio’s masks are entirely handmade using a combination of ancient techniques, passion, and expertise both as a mask maker and painter to deliver outstanding results.
He is renowned for collaborating with the theatre and cinema, especially through his masks featured in Stanley Kubrick’s film “Eyes wide shut”. Boldrin has showcased his creations in Italy, London, Paris, New York, and Los Angeles.
