To define my creative offering under one label is quite impossible. Indeed, art and aesthetics are my life, and my world is primarily visual and visionary. I work with many different groups and organisations as an arts facilitator, practicing artist, commissioned graphic designer, filmmaker, photographer and musician but in all my passion is to express something of myself and encourage others to do the same and connect with their inner artist.
I am a contemporary mixed media artist specialising in painting and drawing. I enjoy experimenting with ink, pen and painting methods. I work in a range of mediums, however, currently create fine art using pen and alcohol inks on Yupo paper. Often creating unique abstract outcomes which can be refined with a diverse range of drawing and painting processes. I find alcohol inks on Yupo paper enables me to create patterns and forms which can lead into exciting colour combinations. I take my inspiration from the shapes found in nature. I collect natural forms and use these to inspire realistic paintings and abstract patterns, often amalgamating these together to create bespoke artwork.
Influenced by 70’s horror films, he is fascinated by the affect theory behind the colour red and the strong emotional connotations that comes with the colour, such as love and death. He explores the language of paint by using a variety of mark making and different shades of red to create the sense of a twisted non-reality and intensity.
Self-taught Italian artist, since my childhood, I loved drawing, creating things by my hands, and I do it just from imagination. When I was a teenager I started to hand paint t-shirt and others clothes items. I enjoyed with different kind of subjects and techniques. Inspiration can come from many sources, so a few years ago I started to learn to use Photoshop, and found a new fantastic tool with which to represent my “world”. To create gives me a great joy that I hope to convey even to those who look at my work. I took part in the Blue exhibition at Rooftop Arts Centre and in Cluster Photography & Print Fair in London in Feb 2020.
I aim to be a diverse visual artist; often turning to mixed media and photography to illustrate the concepts of space, existence and vision. I tend to focus on detailing and observation, by breaking down my subject matter; usually a location, into layers of image, text and colour. From my perspective, everything is viewed as temporary and my work is a creative exploration of the world that I have suddenly found myself in.
