Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
My name is Giulio, I’m a painter since 10 years, although I can live from my artistic work since a couple of years. I actually completed scientific studies and then at the university I went to study art at Brera academy where I graduated as a painter. In the last years I’m experimenting a bit with ‘painting’ and try to stretch its limits and create site-specific installations. Installations when the paint starts to travel into the space around the canvas too.
What do you consider your distinctive achievement?
Recently I created a site-specific installation at Circoloquadro; I’m very proud of this, because it has been quite a challenge for me and I’m satisfied with the result. It has been the first time that I worked on an entire space, creating a 360 degrees artistic experience.
I’m also happy about my research that keeps developing and growing, exploring different fields and directions.
What are you looking forward too?
By being cheeky, to make a fair amount of money with my art. Next to this, I look forward to create new artworks, because every time is a new challenges, a new dialogue and a new process with me and the idea I have in mind.
Which advice would you give to other professionals?
Be honest with yourself, and not do not have to many expectations except for yours. You should trust yourself and be committed to your goals.
What are the challenges that we need to overcome to make cultural entrepreneurship more accessible?
I don’t know. I don’t know because I’m a painter and I’m not trained in entrepreneurship but in artistic techniques. If it was up to me, I would stay in the studio working and dedicate myself to the art. It would great if there will be a person who does it for me.
About the challenges, I think the main one is to find respectful dynamics for the art world, or at least create laws or rules that can protect the professionals involved. It’s important to support the development of professional relationships built upon respect. But that’s a difficult one. There are so many artists and gallerists, that if I don’t agree in creating an artwork on commission for free someone else will do it. But that’s not fair because is killing the professional attitude and the idea of the artist but also of the art world.
