Fabio Coruzzi
Born in Italy, December 1975. Live and work between London and Los Angeles "I wish that each painting I make should be like a poem of the place where I've been. I wish to become a poet of our time, like somebody would tell: "I've been there", but telling that my way, telling the audience that, no matter where we are, in a boulevard or in a toilet, each single place is like an empty box that need to be filled with the intense energy of our existence. Each place leaves a mark, like a scar, inside us. I wish that scar become poetry" "...Provocative and ironic, Fabio Coruzzi's language describes scenarios of social criticism, reflecting almost specularly the cultural reality of our metropolitan society, sandwiched, as he says, "between concrete and the asphalt". Anonimous figures, chaotic spaces, urban life's scenes,women and men in their working environment, athletes and hooligans at sport events, traffic of the city..Life flows incessantly within Fabio Coruzzi's work and the author become a faithful witness of it..." Maria Vinella - art critic I am interested in the urban environment. The city, a town, a village: these concepts are precious source for human development and evolution. Taking a look at any large metropolitan areas, I discover and rewrite the urban environment like a jungle in which human being find recovery for its daily neurosis. It's a melting pot of different gestures, different perspectives. Mixed media mold together these different perspectives, creating the urban environment, Cities are dirty, aggressive, polluted. They can represent the worst side of mankind. That's the reason why city is the main source for artistic genius. Contemporary culture is made of controversy: modernity includes ugliness, imperfection, contamination, anything that creates texture. I use printmaking with mixed media, because art is reality like any other: layered, textural, controversial, open to imagination, colorful, personal, inspiring. I consider myself a painter caged into printmaking. I always have a stormy relationship with the printing table, maybe because I hate repeating myself. That's why each print I make is melted into painting in order to create a unique piece. Each artwork is an idea and each idea is a unique element. It's a bit like reality itself. Art can be good or bad, interesting or boring: but always unique. "My artworks are made using printing technique mixed with other media such as oil pastels, acrylics, water colors, liquid ink pens, pencils on paper, canvas, wood, fabrics. During my working process, I never make any difference between artworks regarding size, client, price or timetable. Each single work is made with the same intensity, dedication, effort, commitment, passion and love. Each work is made covering the surface, millimeter by millimeter, with no rush and lots of patience. I touch and retouch the surface many times with my pens and brushes, making sure the artwork has its right composition of colors, shapes and textures. I want that my works make always the difference in terms of quality, price and value for money. I want that my art collectors must be fully satisfied and 100% sure that there is no art deal better than the one they will have by purchasing my art. I will always challenge anyone to offer a better product for a better price than mine. Thanks a lot for your trust and respect.
