Lasciate ogne speranza, voi ch' intrate. Calligraphy on the wall.

Leave any hope (expectation), do you want to come in?

Actually I didn't know this famous phrase before I had to write it on the wall, I really like it, and I'm very pleased with the finished result. Using acrylic paint and brush on the wall,  the main problem was to get the proper thickness of the paint, which sometimes allows you to see the "brush stroke" which I really like it, before start to do the work I've asked how they wanted, the work in "black perfect letter" or a "letter which sometimes you can see the brush", they allowed me to leave the stroke of the brush.

The work, took me a while to be avaiable to center it properly, but finally I did it, and the last night before go to do it, I changed everything, the letter size, the name of the author I changed the colour, from red to grey, which really did worked properly. Because is not the same work on paper as a "framed paint" that work on a wall, that belongs to the whole house. And this last modifications worked really well.

Carefull with the Cat! (I've changed a bit the colors to show better the grey text),

How it works the grey text, which belongs to the text, but it wasn't the main thing of the work.
You don't see it at the first sight, you see it at the second, which this is what I wanted.

I'm pleased with the result, and the owners of the house, very pleased.

So all we happy! are you?

PARATISSIMA 2012 meeting Enrique Moya and Giancarlo Marcarli

Ciao a tutti!

The post of today, is about the paratissima, an event done in Turin, where lots of artists show their work, wich for the next year I would like to apply to go and be one of them.

Paratissima! I met Enrique Moya Gonzalez and spanish artist which lives in Arezzo (Itali), because of my travel to Fossano which is not far from turin, we finally meet one each other, after long time! His work is amazing I really like it. Also I meet his friend, Giancarlo Marcali, who also was showing his work, very clever installations, amazing work done using the X-Ray, must to be seen, is difficult to explain it with words.

At first stage, Enrique asked me to do a possible performance at his show, but finally, the perform wasn't done, but not really, because I write all the names of his works on the wall using a pencil, and because we deceided this idea a bit later, when the doors were open, I was still doing the work. A really nice experience, work with pencil on a wall, is gives you a nice feeling.... (The last time I did pencil on a wall was to many years ago, maybe when I was just a babe or at the school)

Also I collaborated on his video installation, that Enrique, covered using Aquari Paper, that I wrote on it using a flat brush with red.

El casament (the wedding)

The post of today, is about a wedding job (not a commission) That I've did very proud to my Friends PD&MM. Who are getting married, my first friend who's getting married! Who's going to be the next... I see that far away... there's not a prediction for this king of things.

The funny thing of this work, is that I've did it in the distance, I'm in Italy, they are in Catalonia, Spain, and the surprise too see the pictures on my mailbox, of a work that I've done, that has been printed somewhere else, and becoming an envelope. I'm happy with the result, I did scan the picture, I had no chance to use photoshop (to have some colour control) I was worried, about the quality of the picture for printing, but, it seems that has been done successful.

Actually I like to do the work, talking with the "costumer" in front of them, and discuss, make the samples, ask what they want, what they are looking for, what they are expecting.... Once I get all the information, I put my imagination and I work. Because at the end this work, is not for me, is for them, so them must to be happy with the result,  but also me, I must to be happy with the result, I can't finish a work that I dislike.

I do work with passion, I'm not a machine, Do you?

I've used, a foundational round hand (my one), and an Italic version, which has a far away feeling of the Glamorous script called Copperplate, but is not a Copperplate, could have something similar by  the thick and things, but is an Italic Script. My own version for this case.

Have a nice week!

PD: If someone is getting married and wants something original, just contact me ;)

PD&MM Molti Auguri! Fins aviat!
