Interviewed by Claire Lo

What is the main idea from your artworks?
I think that each of my artwork have a different idea. However, looking back, I can recognize some main themes: the link between object and subject for example like in my puppets and models series as much as the toys for our sad society that don’t know more how to play like in my Irobò giant robots installations, … recently I am working a lot on the relationship between visual patterns and structures in my works, for example the upcoming monographic book Punkie Totalista (240 pages, published by ROJO editions worldwide) will be full of this kind of artworks. The installation-workshop I’ve done last week was a giant structured labyrinth make of recycled cardboards and the idea behind was to talk about the path of life.

What was your first art work? How was that?
I think it was a primary school drawing, a portrait of the Madonna. Pencil. Black and white. Copied from somewhere. It was a gift for my grandfather; he was a painter, Giacomo Tabellini. I was about 10 y.o.

When you create your art work, what did you usually think about?
I usually think to the process, to the path, to the flux, to invent ever new rulez to do it, to the world outside me. I create, each time, my new creative process and I don’t know the result of it. Like a software. This it’s.

Where did you get the inspirations from?
Everyday. Friends. News. Music. Artists. Cities. Forests. Sea. Animals.

When you are creating the visual for your apparel, what do you want to present?
Different ways of doing things. Peace. Better things.

When you creating your drawing, usually how do you get start?
I haven’t a usual way to start. Just take a pen, find a paper sheet and draw. Could be?

What did you usually do when you are free?
I walk. I read. I have fun with friends. I try to enjoy life and smile a lot. I sleep.

Which material do you love to use for your works?
Not a preferred one but for example I love to work with recycled cardboards, chalks, markers, transparent paper, recycled wood, acrylic colors, digital pixels, …

Any plan for 2008?
I will go, with my girlfriend and work comerade Erika to Barcelona to start working on my first international solo exhibition that will open next 9th of January at ROJO.Artspace there. It will be my first x’mas outside Italy, cool.

作品的主要大意是?
在我的創作品裡可以看到不同的點子,然而如
果問到現在的我,仔細想想看我可以大概的仔
細分類為幾個大概的主題,其中一種是存在於
主題與物體間,例如作品裡的木偶與模型裡(
Irobò giant robots installations),其實是
想要讓現在的社會環境增加一些活潑的氣息,
最近的我正努力的處理美化視覺花紋與結構間
的融合點,最好的例子是即將要出版的單版書
籍(Punkie Totalista),其中都是充滿這種
融合繪畫的呈現- 40 pages ROJO editions
www.rojo-magazine.com-。 對我來說,才
剛剛結束一系列利用回收紙卡的大巨人結構繪
畫,還有在背後所隱藏的生命的捷徑。

分享第一件作品?
我的第一件作品其實是在國小的時候畫的,那
時的我才10歲。哈哈哈!跟你們說其實是瑪
丹娜的肖像,因為那時的我很崇拜她,想為自
己留一個很美好的經驗,而主要的是以黑色和
白的色塊與鉛筆做為畫的工具,讓這件作品成
為爺爺的禮物,因為他曾經是位畫家- Giacomo
Tabellini想讓他也可以分享孫子的作品喜
悅。(微笑中)

創作時的想法?
我常常在創作作品時,都只是想到過程何該如
何到達最後的成果,或是可以讓自己有更多的
空間可以想到不錯的點子,只要有新的作品呈
現,就會有新的創意過程,最奇妙的是通常結
果我都不想知道,這才是最美妙的創作經驗。

我的創意來源從?
我的靈感來源都是在每一天的每一分秒所發現
的,像是與朋友的聊話中、新聞的報導中、音
樂的韻律中、藝術家的作品中、城市的發掘
中、森林的沉澱中、海洋的陶冶中和動物間的
互動中,其實在生命的周遭所發生的每一件事
物,都可能是影響你之後創作的靈感之一。

當你的視覺作品成為服裝的視覺時 最想要表
達的是?

為了讓自己以及作品可以有空間進步,所以想
嘗試不同的創作方法來使自己及作品呈現更好
以及和平的氣息。

是如何讓作品開始創作的?
每當我想要創作時,就會利用筆和紙張,兩種
工具就可以開始作畫了,因為靈感是一瞬間的
衝擊,如果不立刻畫下來,它就會隨時的飛走
了,所以才不管三七二十一,隨性的畫下來,
那會是最自然的呈現了。

休閒時的趣事?
在休閒的時候,我會想要在大街上走、在公園
裡讀一本書與朋友們一起遊玩,我試著讓自己
享受人生和無時無刻的帶著微笑,當然睡覺也
是我最喜歡的一件事了。哈哈哈~~

最喜愛的創作材料?
我沒有任何特別喜愛的工具,但是對於回收的
紙板、粉筆、奇異筆、描圖紙、廢舊木材、壓
克力筆的色塊加上數位的技術,這些都是我比
較常用以及有信心的工具。

2008的計畫?
在2008年的新開始,我會讓自己與女朋友一
同走出義大利(我現在的所在地),之後將到
巴塞隆納與comerade Erika 一起進行國際的單人參展,這項展覽
將會在 008年的一月份在ROJO.Artspace,
希望新年新氣象,可以為自己帶來新的新的一
面真的好期待喔!
