Interview: Janzen Albert

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Janzen Albert, the winner of IT’S LIQUID INTERNATIONAL CONTEST 4TH EDITION 2017.

I was born in 1989 in Siberia and grew up in Germany. After 13 years at the School of Music and Art I followed my artistic path autonomously alongside studying Philosophy and Mathematics in Berlin. It was during this time that I discovered my love for the line. Later I went to London to study Logic and became inspired by the autonomous work of artists like Cy Twombly, Gerhard Richter and Zao Wou-Ki. During my Masters of Logic in Amsterdam I won the Luxembourg Art Prize which offered me my first Solo exhibition. Ever since then I continue my work in philosophy and art and seek out for new opportunities to exhibit my work.

Interview: Alessandro Risuleo

 

Luca Curci talks with the artist Alessandro Risuleo during BODYSPACES | HUMANS+HYBRIDS in Rome.

Alessandro Risuleo was born in Rome in 1971 and he was immediately keen on visual communication systems. After twenty years of experience as both art director and advertising agent, which he developed through working at his agency Visual Creative Studio, he has found in photography means for artistic expression that allow him to express his creativity freely. His photographs move between the abstract, the pictorial and the hyper-realism. It is a photographic technique taken to the maximum extent of the expressive potential, including the use of light and shadows, the mastery of digital techniques as well as the sensitivity to new technologies.

Interview: Natasha Monfared

 

Luca Curci talks with artist Natasha Monfared during FRAGMENTED IDENTITIES and FUTURE LANDSCAPES of BORDERS festival in Venice.

Born in Sheffield, Natasha Monfared is a final year student of Fine Art (BA Hons) at the University of Lincoln, based both in Lincoln and Hull as an artist. Monfared personifies her interests through the medias of video and photography, occasionally combining the two to create audio visuals of a raw aesthetic. Her underlying concern on the political and cultural aspects in Iran is a reflection of the artist’s Iranian background, consequently allowing her to make personal responses from experience and visits to the country. As her practice has developed, she currently further investigates today’s affairs affecting women’s place in society which takes place through the propaganda form of social media.
