Who and where are you from?
I'm Ettore Pinelli, I was born in Modica (Sicily) in 1984, where currently I live and work. In 2002, at the age of eighteen, i moved to Florence to study painting and exhibition design at the Academy of Fine Arts, until 2010. I lived important formative experiences in those years.
How you got into this?
My artistic career started around 2006, while i attended the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence. At the same time i started to work in Sicily with some galleries that followed my work. In 2008 I built my first solo-exhibition in a public space. Since then, I work scrupulously, watching carefully and curiosity the scenery around me.
What is your driving force?
What I'm most interested to call attention, is the drift of images that inspire me, a sort of perpetual, uncontrolled and seamless distillation, which shows a disturbing and truthful face of today's reality. The practice of painting and drawing are the means to represent my reflections, closest to my sensibility and that somehow have always fascinated me with all their internal dynamics, which i try to make to surface on a transitional movement from figuration to abstraction, denying and destroying.
What kind of work you do and why?
I'm fascinated about that part of the information documentary, with images and videos rarely able to capture our attention for more than a few seconds. Images of clashes, riots and scenes of animal and human dominance. I'm interested in capturing the most instinctive stage of relationships, stopped moments, unconscious nature of man and animal struggling to stay on the surface, or otherwise disarmed, is overwhelmed.
