Interview with artist Lorenzo "Loreprod" Anzini
FG: If you should tell someone the story of your life, from where would you start?
Lorenzo: I started to draw at around 3 years old. At the age of 11 mymom bought me my first oil painting set and I never stopped.
FG: How would you describe your art today?
Lorenzo: My art is confused. Sometimes it’s brutal, grows from thestomach and explodes... I like the violence of the beasts, as well as the human condition. Sometimes I take the opposite way and I paint oniric and surrealistic landscape from my place. I live along the sea coast and I like to play with clouds.
FG: Can you mention an artist, artwork or series of art projects that particularly influenced/inspired you in you work as an artist?
Lorenzo: At the age of 14 I was positively shocked by Jean-MichelBasquiat! It has been my Virgilio in the land of art. Francis Bacon too... and of course Mark Rothko, but my list is much longer because I love almost everything. Dadaism is my favourite art avant-gard art.
FG: What is, in you opinion, the purpose of art nowadays?
Lorenzo: Art is for eyes, mind and soul. I love workingaround concept and I like when art is for social communication.
FG: What do you need to feel happy?
Lorenzo: Just painting. Nothing else.
