I have created this painting inspired by the ancient towers of my city and those of modern metropolises all over the world. I used the Forex foam board for its lightness and sturdiness. Before painting, I prepared the surface of the panel with three layers of plaster. To convey the complexity of the walls and architectural surfaces, I used a variety of materials, superimposing paper fragments with acrylic paint and then highlighting detail with oil pastels and charcoal.

Getting to Know Alessandro

Alessandro’s artistic practice is divided into three series: nature, cities, and figures. Each represents a unique facet of human life on earth, and the artist’s understanding of life’s visual properties. “Representing life is the main purpose of my painting,” says Alessandro. “The human figure, the city, [and] nature are great subjects to study and transfer to canvas or paper, but what I’m most interested in is discovering and highlighting the relationship between forms and colors… This relationship is discovered by the careful observation of reality.” Although Alessandro’s inspirations come from real life, his paintings provide something far more emotional. Color and shape do not represent reality but are instead the artist’s interpretation of each subject. Alessandro creates his vision based in the Tuscan town of San Gimignano, Italy, from his artist studio located inside an old prison building.
