Roberto Alfano

Roberto Alfano, Lodi, 1981. He develops an interest in art in the first half of the nineties, fascinated by the phenomenon of urban art. In this period he realizes his first graffitis. Over the years this practice will turn into an obsessive passion for drawing and painting. The primary sources of inspiration can be traced back to contemporary underground culture, Art-Brut, and the work of the French masters of post-impressionism. In addition to the production and exhibition activities, the artist has formed in the field of clinical art therapy as an expert in the conduction of art workshops and experiential dynamics of artistic expression in situations of psychophysical and social distress. In recent years he has developed his own methodological approach in the context of the artistic-experiential laboratory: the method "Generative Contemporary Art". This provides for the practice of artistic disciplines through the introduction and use of interdependent techniques and languages, aiming at the revelation of needs, the generation of autonomy, and the stimulation of the exploratory system. The approach to the educational and didactic dimension will lead him to focus his artistic research as a function of freedom of expression. Since the end of 2018, the artist has also carried out the activity of trainer as an expert in artistic-experiential workshops. . . . Roberto Alfano, Lodi, 1981. Sviluppa interesse per l’arte a partire dalla prima metà degli anni Novanta affascinato dal fenomeno dell’arte urbana. In questo periodo realizza i suoi primi graffiti. Nel corso degli anni questa pratica si tramuterà in una passione ossessiva per il disegno e per la pittura. Le fonti primarie di ispirazione sono riconducibili alla cultura contemporanea underground, all’Art-Brut e alla pittura dei maestri francesi del post-impressionismo. Accanto all’attività produttiva ed espositiva l’artista si è formato nell’ambito dell’arte terapia clinica in qualità di esperto nella conduzione di laboratori artistico-esperienziali e delle dinamiche delle espressioni artistiche in situazioni di disagio psicofisico e sociale. Nel corso degli ultimi anni ha sviluppato un proprio approccio metodologico nel contesto del laboratorio artistico-esperienziale, il metodo “Arte Contemporanea Generativa”. Questo prevede la pratica delle discipline artistiche tramite l’introduzione e l’utilizzo di tecniche e linguaggi interdipendenti, finalizzata alla rivelazione dei bisogni, alla generazione di autonomie e alle stimolazione del sistema esplorativo. L’approccio alla dimensione educativa e didattica lo porterà a focalizzare la sua ricerca artistica in funzione della libertà d’espressione. Dalla fine del 2018, l’artista svolge inoltre l’attività di formatore in qualità di esperto di laboratori artistico-esperienziali. Ph.credits: Pietro Cocco

“The monotype technique adapts perfectly to a spontaneous/impulsive pictorial approach. During my residency at Varsi Lab, I had the opportunity to experiment, thanks to intense printing sessions with 56Fili, the hybrid solution between monotype and screenprint. This interdisciplinary work led to the realization of the first series of prints “Due Teste di Figure Antropomorfe“/“Tigre Urbana”. The process, dynamic and at times frenetic, leaves ample room for the gesture, indeed it is resolved in the impulsive gesture. This, integrated with the “composure” of screen printing, allowed me to contain the chaotic nature of the composition into clear and defined forms. “Tigre Urbana” is in some way a tribute to Antonio Ligabue, transposed into the contemporary world; the feral forced in the urban reality that rediscovers authenticity when it leaves a mark in its habitat when it re-appropriates the suffocating spaces of some humanized contexts. In short, this series of monotypes has been a pretext for experimenting with new techniques and finding creative solutions to the limits imposed by screen printing, which opens up new artistic research in the field of printing.” Roberto Alfano
