Interview: Karim Adduchi

Luca Curci talks with the artist Karim Adduchi, the winner of an HONORABLE MENTION of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

Illustrator, painter and fashion designer Karim Adduchi was born in Imzouren, Morocco, in 1988. He grew up between the sewing machines and threads and moved, at the age of five, to Barcelona. As it was his first time ever to attend school, but unable to speak, Adduchi turned to drawing as a way of self-expression. He attended the University of Fine Arts in Barcelona, where Adduchi further developed his art. Drawing inspiration from both the Italian Renaissance and contemporary art, he laid the fundaments for his recognisable style of illustrating. In 2010 Adduchi moved to Amsterdam to study fashion design at the Gerrit Rietveld in which he graduated last year with a striking collection called ‘She Knows Why the Caged Bird Sings’. Just a year later of graduating Karim Adduchi was invited to open Amsterdam Fashion Week.

Luca Curci talks with the artist Dascha Esselius during RITUALS of ANIMA MUNDI festival 2017 in VENICE.

Dascha Esselius was born in Prague, Czechoslovakia in 1953. She lives in Stockholm, Sweden since 1969. Her artwork consists of films, photographs, sculptures, public art and video installations, the last of which are almost immaterial, created by ever changing projections on thin transparent veils all around the spectators. Her first film, which was commissioned by Swedish Television in 1984, was based on the first of these installation.

Interview: Astrid Charlotte Wintgens

 

Astrid Charlotte Wintgens was born in Düsseldorf, Germany. She graduated in Textile Design and Art. She is currently working as an artist in Switzerland and Germany. Besides that, she assisted in stage design and the creation of costumes for actors in London. The fabulous textures and hues of her artworks result in an elegant style that only vaguely hints at decorations. Astrid Charlotte’s goal is to capture emotional and impressive moments on photo and in painting. She enjoys working with different materials and techniques, always curious for new styles. One recent example of a promising combination is digital photography with handcraft. Astrid Charlotte Wintgens exhibited in Vienna, Venice, Milan, Buenos Aires and in Düsseldorf.

Interview: Maya Jimsheleishvili

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Maya Jimsheleishvili, the PUBLIC VOTE winner of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

Maya Jimsheleishvili was born in 1979 in Tbilisi, Georgia. Since she was a little, she has always had a passion for art, specifically painting and music. Graduated in 2003 from the Tbilisi State Academy of Arts in 2003, she works in oil, tempera, gold leaf, ink, pastel, graphite, playing with the materials, mixing them and enjoying the results, even when it is a “failure”. As a graphic artist, one of the very important things for her is “the line” – each line in her drawings or paintings is a stream of energy. “I experiment with different styles hopefully moving to the right direction to find myself. My art has taught me who I am but I still continue exploring the deepest parts of my soul. I enjoy searching for harmony of colors“.
