LIVES AND WORKS
LIVES AND WORKS
Mola di Bari
Attracted by the visual arts and storytelling, I always wanted to communicate and interact with the world being able to work on transmedia projects: web, e-learning, cinema, theater, photography, painting, illustration, advertising, and visual journalism.
I worked with Italian Masters, collaborating on the screenplay for theatrical comedies and short films as the Film Adaptation of "Il fascino discreto della parola" by Maurizio Costanzo.
For two years now, my illustrations and political figures' portraits have been published weekly on "La Voce di New York," is a US-based bi-lingual (Italian and English) online newspaper. It is directed towards the Italian community in the United States and those interested in Italian and Italian-American news, language and culture.
I won the Honorable Mention from IPA, International Photography Awards™ of New York in Nocturne Photography's section, 2018, and my digital works have been selected for the AD ART SHOW 2020 in the exhibition throughout September at the Oculus, Westfield's WTC unique architectural complex in New York City. The same works are sponsored by MVVO ART and are for sale on Artsy.net.
I have studied realism in the past but felt that it did not belong to me, as I was not particularly eager to adapt to the "established" laws and norms. I started experimenting with every technique, material, and media until I fell in love with "line art."
In recent years my interest has focused on the issue of INCOMMUNICABILITY. I investigate the inner dynamics to make them emerge from the characters I propose: internal conflicts, uncertainty, jealousy, fear, anger, passion.
"Immediacy" and "storytelling" represent the uniqueness of my style. I never know where the line's immediacy will take me; like watercolor, it may be of great value or lack it.
My research attempts to deconstruct complex three-dimensional objects into single continuous lines while maintaining their sense of depth and character.
The creative intuition can arise from a song, or the visual amazement as I walk the streets of Rome or New York and from a perception or a lived experience.
The figures in the scene are always direct lines, instinctive that intersect and blend with the plot. The characters are "frozen in action." They observe, try to communicate, listen, contemplate in a suspended time. The life moves between ink strokes; the figures become real, claiming shapes and colors in a "new concept of life."
