Interview: Aurora Giampaoli

Italian artist Aurora Giampaoli was born in Lucca on November 26, 1984. At the age of 13, she started his artistic journey, first by attending the High School of Art in her home town in Tuscany, and then by getting a degree in Cinema and Audiovisual Arts at the University of Pisa. During this period, her interest in the language of photography began to grow. She started developping a personal style by visiting cinema halls and theatres. It was then she abandoned street photography and decided to refine the art of portraiture. Her lens focused on human figure, explored its complexity, shuns the daylight and reshapes reality, giving us fantastic views of human bodies.

Luca Curci – When you start practicing art and why?
Aurora Giampaoli – I started developing my personal style once graduated at artistic high school, working on painting and photography. Then I noticed that most of my work was about the human figure and I decided to dedicate myself exclusively to it. I make art because it can’t be different; the art improves the quality of life.

L. C. – Can you talk about your artistic work? Which are your inspirations?
A. G. – My artworks talk about men and women without faces and history, they are not portraits but imaginary pictures of an idea of humanity. They are characters and not people. My studies at the artistic high school of Lucca are very important for me: through them and the great protagonists of art history, I’ve understood that our mind is able to carry out great feats. I’m inspired by Caravaggio (the first great master of the light’s usage, for me), by fashion photography, cinema, theatre..

A. G. – I’m working on new series in which portraits are connected with still life and sculpture.

L. C – What was the best advice given to you as an artist?
A. G. – “Per fare arte bisogna durà fatica (To make art, you need to struggle)” by Ezio, my high school teacher of drawing.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?
A. G. – An organization that can create contacts and interactions among so many countries, it’s a resource for culture and not only for art.

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?
A. G. -The opportunities lie where there are relationships and interchanges. I have been attracted by “BorderBody” exhibition because of the possibility to make my art overcome my boundaries and dialogue with artworks by artists from all-over the world.
