An Interview with Vito Stramaglia.
Who and where are you from?
My name is Vito Stramaglia, I was born and I live in Puglia, Italy
What brought you to Art?
In my life there has always been an inner voice that has brought me, since I was a child, to the complex world of art.
What is your driving force?
My driving force is the desire to put life in a canvas. life with its vibrations and its inexplicable simplicity
What kind of work you do and why?
My painting is very material and you can caress and feel almost a skin. I try to get to the beauty from all directions, using harmony but also vehemence, bright colors but also darker blacks. metaphor of life.
Tell us more about your thought process.
Good question. In my painting there is no thought and no rationality. everything comes from an idea while I'm far from the canvas and the colors. I sketch something on a small sheet and when I go to my studio I remain in silence and eyes closed in front of the canvas. when I hear the beating of my heart, I open my eyes and without thinking start painting.
Please share with us the one modern artist whose work you find Interesting and why?
This is difficult for me. there are so many good artists and I can not say if one is more effective than another. my advice is to see all the art of the world without reading the names of the artists. art belongs to the universe, has no ego, and serves all of us to enter a dream.
