Corrado Zeni's works do not represent architectural motifs. Rather the figures are positioned on a white background. The bottom is replaced by a clear, expressive gradient. The white spatial emptiness emphasizes the individual figures and emphasizes the attributes of the "Generation Y". It can be seen that the illustrated people are removed from the urban everyday life situations. Some stand or walk closely together, without communicating with each other and without requesting a dialogue with the viewer. It builds no external barrier between the viewer and the unrelated portrayed person, nevertheless, the posture of the figures makes it impossible to engage in what has happened, to be part of the action. Zeni's work document the contemporary life and modern society on an abstract background, in it on the one hand, disordered, fast-paced nature and individualistic perceptible existence on the other.
“From my point of view, I reversed the basics of my work. For almost twenty years I have been watching people I met by chance, taking pictures, extracting them from their stories and assembling them in my own, very personal and detached story. The technique and the creative process are now free ... The style of painting is more spontaneous, less controlled and rich in symbols. "
