Interview with the Artist Emiliano Alfonsi

Translation by Costanza Tagliaferri

Q: Tell us about your art technique and what first sparked an interest in this medium.

A: To achieve the sculptural and three-dimensional effect of the painting, all my work with tempera paint is on carved and assembled wooden pieces following a specific order of stratification. I usually paint on lime following the fundamental principles of ancient mural paintings; while the trim of each piece is in twenty-two carat gold leaf.

Interview with the Artist Anna Dittmann

Q: Tell us about your art technique and what first sparked

Saturno Butto: Interview by Costanza Tagliaferri

Q: Could you describe the evolution of your pictorial style between byzantine icons and historical avant-garde?

A: I am not sure if it is possible to talk about ‘evolution’ in the style of my paintings. Apart from researching more sophisticated pictorial textures, technically speaking I have always been interested in bodies and portraits. Even today, I am loyal to my ‘first love’, the human figure. I keep interpreting it on one hand by taking inspiration from my cultural background (byzantine art and historical avant-garde); on the other, by everything I discover observing the world and the people surrounding me.

Q: Are you also inspired by other mediums to create your atmospheres and characters?

Costanza Tagliaferri interview with Zoe Lacchei

Q: Could you describe the evolution of your style, and how you arrived to prefer this medium?

A: My artistic journey has been extremely tortuous. I have been drawing in every field; from porno comics to sophisticated comic strips, from creating videogame’s character design to pure illustration. Every single step of my journey pushed me towards a change, an evolution in both style and content. Today, I am using the medium that not only gave me the opportunity to best represent my ‘visions’, but that also made me recognizable among the other artists working with graphite on paper.
