Sistine Chapel is the best-known chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope in the Vatican City. It is famous for its architecture and its decoration that was frescoed throughout by Renaissance artists including Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Pietro Perugino, Pinturicchio and others. Under the patronage of Pope Julius II, Michelangelo painted 1,100 m2 (12,000 sq ft) of the chapel ceiling between 1508 and 1512. The ceiling, and especially The Last Judgment (1535–1541), is widely believed to be Michelangelo’s crowningachievement in painting.

ARTIST GUIM TIÓ
“The artist offers “pictographic” portraits in some sort of pantheon of “avatars”, those famous virtual replicas from the various social networks in which friendships, preferences, desires and memories are intertwined. These avatars are a reflection of the users’ personal identities, that they spread on the net in an overt and shameless way. Guim Tió observes this “digital territory” while demonstrating some corrosive irony and reveals, at the same time, the fragility and ambiguity of human condition, unique to our time, that is to assert oneself through image instead of content.” - Original text of Massimo Cova
