Interview with artist Alan Spazzali —


1. Who are you and what do you do?
I was born in Trieste, Italy. I am a Dutch citizen from Italian origin and actually, I lived in Barcelona, Spain. I acquired my bachelors Degree from the Ecole Nationale Superieur des Beaux-Arts and the Ecole des Arts Decoratief in Paris and my post graduation course at the Rietveld Modern Art Academy in Amsterdam. I have exposed in different countries as the USA, Benelux, Greece, Cuba, England, Germany, Russia, China and France.




2. Why art?
I want to connect with contemporary life through the technology we have now. I paint fragments with varying levels of connection to reality. Within that parameter, I am probing relationships between connection and separation, similarity and difference, image and self. Life through the technology we have now.





3. What is your earliest memory of wanting to be an artist?
At age 15.



4. How do you work and approach your subject?
I have used various styles and materials, all of them expressing their affinity for the forefront and always consistent visual as an artist. Currently my work is characterized its symbolic style, believing that the emotional message of an image can tell a story. I am making an Enlightenment Capsule for the audience to meditate inside — a virtual reality in which people can experience ideas. I usually don’t plan things in advance, I just let it happen. Sometimes waiting, sometimes wandering around until the right moment arrives. It arrives when I feel the energy, accumulated from that precise time and place, in my body. Then I immediately start a work.





5. What are your favorite artwork(s), artist(s)?
Max Ernst is one of my inspirational artists, but also Joan Mirò for my minimalistic Works.





6. What do you like about your work?
The  multifaceted way to express my self

7. What advice would you give to other artists?
Do it for your self-do not think if it can be liked..



8. Where do you see yourself in 5-10 years?
Creating works in virtual reality surroundings.
