Alessandro Andreuccetti, San Gimignano Member Since August 2007 Artist Statement Alessandro Andreuccetti was born in San Gimignano, Italy, July 28, 1955. He studied art and architecture in Florence and, after graduating, started his job in 1980 as a graphic designer and painter. From 1978 he was interested in watermedia painting, fascinated with this technique and the support of hand-worked paper. He was showing paintings in many italian towns.
On 1983 he won the 1th prize at "concorso nazionale del fumetto e del Fantastico di Prato" and he started to collaborate with Sergio Micheli of University of Siena and the editor and publisher Nerbini of Florence to realize comics and illustrations. He published two graphic novels and many illustrations for various books.
In parallel with the graphical activity, it continues its artistic surveying searching in the landscapes and the figures taken to model the forms and the colours to amalgamate in new perfectly independent compositions, as it has had way to emphasize the university professor Anna Benvenuti: “…Therefore its paint-brush leads to us, onlooker, between the warm ways of Saint Gimignano, red of history or nocturnal of china, tclose to the forests to butterfly leaves, in the bluesy stormy or the green infinite of the young grain fields. With its chromatics it succeeds, much better than how much it is not possible to the historian, to evoke the thickness of the time inborn in the things, their meant ucronic of compendium. Therefore thanks to the light, before between 'pieces' of the creation - also of that artistic one - it expresses the immaterial substance of the duration, the patina of becoming, the essence of the generations that that time they have crossed and lived covering the same places and watching the same colours.”
