Premio Antonio Giordano 2016

in Blog/English

Premio Antonio Giordano (PAG) is an urban art festival aimed at promoting all forms of visual arts: painting, sculpture, photography and architecture. Focusing on contemporary art languages, PAG continues the research and experimentation activities carried out by the artist Antonio Giordano (painter, sculptor and photographer), a multifaceted exponent of the transavantgarde movement who passed away in 2013.

PAG promotion and divulgation of visual art in the urban space, considered as the privileged place for the discussion and the knowledge exchange. PAG selects artists from the urban art scene at national and international levels.

The event is organized by Associazione Culturale Antonio Giordano (ACAG), with the support of the town council of Santa Croce di Magliano (Italy). The selection of most suitable spaces, such as abandoned buildings and the most significant urban centres, and the art direction are managed by ACAG; special attention is paid to the selection of artists, namely of their artistic language, differing in terms of culture and formation, but also in terms of painting technique. The choice is based on the most suitable artistic language for the character of the places where the intervention is carried out.

“WALTER” (2016)

A film by Victor Celaya

Produced by All City Canvas

“WALTER” emerges from an urban art mural production that was made last year in Atlanta. Originally intended to be a documentation of the process, we discovered how the lives of the people of the community influenced the final piece. Their personal stories immerse us in the history of the community and allow us to witness the sparks of hope in the younger generations.

5 street artists meet the art of Salvatore Ferragamo

The Italian artist Gola Hundun was protagonist of a new appointment with public art in Bonito for the project Impronte, an event dedicated to Salvatore Ferragamo who was born in the little town in 1898.

The artwork was inspired by a variety of elements related to the human nature and the animal one. A dark background mimics the night on which stands a forest of natural elements like leaves, birds, the golden moon and the profile of a mighty stag.

“Chiarezza di Luna” (“Moonlight”) is the name chosen by the artist, a concept which expresses the desire to freeze that moment in which the sun is not yet finally gone down but already the moonlight overlooks the landscape. It is a time when you can be stripped of the struggles and a breeze refreshes the body and the mind. It comes the night, that breeze relaxes the mind and you can focus on those thoughts that accompanied you during the working day and now, you can see everything with a greater clarity.

The artwork is entirely permeated by the ambivalence of the central figure of the deer, which symbolize the wisdom of the forest and, on the other hand, the representation of the power of life and the creative nature. The deer catalyst power is mitigated by other elements on the wall like leaves and birds. The presence of birds is a detail which was born from the awareness of the artist about the “relaxing nature” of the harmonious flying which symbolize “freedom for the mind”.

As well as the participation of Tellas was very coherent with the project Impronte, in the same way the artwork by Gola Hundun recalls the Salvatore Ferragamo work whose used to include natural and animal elements in his creations, especially in fabrics and silk scarves.

Besides his excellent artwork, which gave new energy to the little square where children and kids usually spend their leisure time, Gola Hundun left a trail of pleasant human exchanges .

The works are going on with Milu Correch, in town from June 17, and Giulio Vesprini from June 24. Meanwhile we are at work on the awaited exhibition in which they will be exposed 5 shoes from Salvatore Ferragamo Museum in Florence on July 27.
