MILANO in BÌLICO - MILAN on the WOBBLE 2020

This is a snippet of an animation I made ten years ago and that perfectly fits the moment we are all living now.
It was projected during a series of exhibitions I made with artwork dealing with the history of Milan and the crisis it had to endure; all these events were all eventually overcome, thanks to the action of a series of forgotten characters who loved the city. It happened before, it will happen again.
The complete animation is HERE

I made it with the help of Antonio Cova who edited and directed it and Antonello Brogna who created most of the soundtrack.
Happy antivirus week!

STILL LIFE with FUFI and PARMIGIANO REGGIANO

Milan lockdown day 21
Fufi stays home and due to progressing boredom, the renown puppystar has started posing in a series of still lives.
In this case the theme is Italian Parmigiano Reggiano, probably one of the best cheeses in the world.
Thank you Fufi to make yourself useful in these days of doom and gloom.
We count on you.
"Wuf!"

#STRIKEFORFUTUREONLINE - MOBILE HOME

Another Friday for Future, another #climatestrikeonline
My new image for #illustratorsforclimate the Italian Associazione Autori di Immagini's visual action in support of the international environmental movements that fight governments' inaction on all these issues. We are still in the middle of the worst pandemic outbreak of the century, but cannot forget the even larger issues.
Go Greta, go!

Original artwork: Mobile home (2016) - Acrylic and oil on canvas, 80.5x60.5cm

COVID-19 - MILANO's LOCKDOWN - DUOMO

The City of Milan is in a lockdown except for all necessary services. Therefore also all our religious stations have been closed with their activities suspended until futher notice.
Nature has taken this chance to do what it's supposed to do: reclaim what's been taken away.
When all this crisis will be over there's so much rethinking to be done about our society and economy. Luckily there are many brilliant proposals being made online these days, in spite of all those whose main activity is trolling destructively against anybody. Let's be positive and think about what we can do to help one another to change the structure of the whole system which, no need to say, is corrupted to the bone (Go Fridays for Future, go!).

Happy day!

NAVIGLIO GRANDE AT 8:00 am

A cold and eerie morning on Naviglio Grande.
Not a soul around.
Just a sleeping swan right under this bridge in the still waters that have not started flowing again. Spring is yet to come here.

STILL LIFE of a STILL LIFE...

This is probably the very first Still life of a still life painting ever taken*.
Art historians will talk about something else for generations to come.
Nevertheless this audacious artistic act is very improtant in these days of doom and gloom, because it helps distracting from the constant thoughts  about the pandemic and the free-roaming words of so many unqualified politicians.
Well in Fufi we trust.
And in Albers, too...
Happy day!

Painting: Still life with Fufi in Albers room
Acrylic and oil on canvas - 40x40cm n.8

*in my studio in via Conchetta, Milan
