In my paintings femininity is the center of the universe, i use various artistic techniques to give form to my works, i do not like the monotony.
Many of my works are inspired by Pop Art
A bit of history about this artistic movement:
Pop art is an art movement that emerged in the mid-fifties in the UK and in the early sixties in the United States; Pop art has presented a challenge to the traditions of art by including imagery from popular culture such as advertising and news. The material object of artistic expression is, at times, visually removed from its known context, isolated, and in combination with foreign material. The concept of pop art refers not so much to the art itself, but rather the attitudes that determine it.
My idea of pop art was born in 2006, when i had the intuition of decorating the old furniture, with newspapers and magazines. We brought this furniture around Italy, in antique markets and specialized fairs, we have sold many.
So, after that the trend of the ‘pop art furniture’ slowly passed, in 2010 i started drawing portraits and illustrations on ancient uniques pages of books, [some of that era you can find them on sale here].
I do not know if mine is Pop Art understood as pure, certainly is inspired by the same guidelines, i think that my works are a little less ‘Pop’ and a little more ‘Art’ 🙂
Twenty years of experience in the artistic sector.
|This is a part of my studio.
||I use almost always lived materials for artistic support.
The canvases and wooden frames are totally made by hand, usually the fibers are jute, flax or cotton, specially treated by me to paint or to receive paper applications.
|The watercolors and similar are Winsor & Newton, in some cases they are handmade by natural pigments.
||The Indian ink is specially treated by me to draw and paint
