“Art can not avoid being ir-reverent, ir-ritating, ir-regular, ir-rational, ir-respective and all those irs- that make it, above all, alive.”

 

To borrow the words from Charles Saatchi, I’m an «Artoholic». My life cannot avoid art just as art cannot avoid being ir-reverent, ir-ritating, ir-regular, ir-rational, ir-respective and all those irs- that make it, above all, alive. As an art curator I developed many artistic projects and I curated many art catalogues in order to take art to everyone because everyone has the right to experience it. Since art is my passion, and not my profession, I only focus on art that is part of what I am sure it will come to be seen as the number one turn-of-the-century artistic movement: Street Art. In a world that seems ever more destined to put individuals before the collective, and citizens before society, Street Art is the only artistic movement that unites and includes, taking art back to its original meaning. Art isn’t born as an expression of a single individual, but as the expression of an entire community. Art isn’t meant to be a cryptic dialogue reserved for a select few, but rather as an instrument of communication for the masses, one that addresses everyone. Every time we see a work of art on a wall, or along the streets of our city, and we ask ourselves how an artist might have decided to paint on a wall instead on a canvas, we are on the wrong track. The question we should be asking, today, is not why man started making art in the street, but why man might have stopped making art in the street. Street Art is that thing that, while you're walking on the street, or you are in your car or while you're running through the city's streets, it jumps on you, unexpectedly, and makes you say: "What is this?", and that, indeed, is the essence of art.
