The project
“Breaking the rules” is a project that destroys the way of making art. It’s a difficult and painful way to get out from the “confort zone” and to use the media, compositions and ideas never used before to keep on growing as artist and as a person.
The project started in 2015 with the first artwork made for a collective that invited the artists to use the media never used before. The Russian artist mixed up Roy Lichtenstein’s pop-art and Rene Magritte’s surrealism.
Every year the new artworks keep on “breaking the rules”.

Is it possible to travel even when you stay home to stay safe? Is it possible during he lockdown to go through the home space to go forward? I say “yes” and accept the challenge!
My lockdown started 10th march 2020. I kept on sketching all that time. This is the chronicle of my interior journey to the far and close places I have never seen but I would like to.

Don’t miss the limited edition capsule collection of apparel and accessories from t-shirts to phone cases all with the artworks of “Home Made” sketchbook.

Let me introduce my cats. Their names are Susan and Brie and as well as us they shall stay at home for the lockdown. They pass almost all day on the carpet. Looking at them I see the Egyptian sphinxes. There must be a reason why people revere the cats since the ancient times.

It’s Flash-mob time! There are 2 or 3 flash-mobs every day: first we sing to be brave, than we applaud to the doctors, than we dance, than we place music instruments and make noise … It seams to be on carnival of Rio de Janeiro but we are on the balcony of our homes. It is lockdown, there is COVID-19 outside.

Cactus are the unique plants to survive on the balcony that watch south. This little cactus in the spring sun seams to remember its motherland: the desert. It would be great to go their to sketch that surreal lunar landscapes live.

A puddle on the terrace of my home generously left by the huge Turin rain reflects some weeds. It seams to me to see the fishermen houses of Marano Lagunare near Venice reflected in the water.

The face masks are scarce, so I made them for my family. Finishing the last one the memories of my travel to Turkey with my mother back to my mind. I remember the images of belly dancers with the transparent veils on their faces.

On the balcony in a sunny spring day I talk to my neighbour, during the lockdown a balcony became a sort of social club where to meet people and talk awhile. It sems to be in a typical town of south Italy. I have never been to Naples, but I would like to go there one day.

One week 100 people 2020. 9-13 marzo 2020

Come disegnare 100 persone in una settimana durante la quarantena? Ecco la mia storia.

Hai mai provato a ritrarre 100 persone in 1 settimana? Io sì. Nel 2020 per quarta volta ho preso parte alla “caccia” al ritratto veloce che si è svolta dal 9 al 13 marzo. Questa volta avevo dei seri dubbi di farcela. Il coronavirus ha confinato tutti in casa.

one week 100 people 2020
Alcune delle 100 persone disegnate durante la quarantena

8 marzo. Ricomincio da zero. Come da tradizione il primo ritratto della serie “one week 100 people” è il mio autoritratto. A differenza dalle altre volte il giorno prima ho disegnato un autoritratto “non ufficiale”. Mi è sembrato giusto definirlo come “numero zero”. Esprime come non vorrei mai sentirmi.

Autoritratto zero ed autoritratto uno

9 marzo. Quarantena -1.  Il primo giorno della maratona. Volti preoccupati delle mie colleghe in sala mensa il giorno prima dell’inizio della quarantena per COVID-19. Negli uffici ci stiamo preparando a “levare le tende” e sparpagliarci per le case con il telelavoro.

10 marzo. #iorestoacasa. Il primo giorno del così detto smart-working ed il secondo della maratona. Disegno i miei compagni dei “domiciliari”, la mia famiglia, e poi chiunque passi nel raggio del visibile. Del fattorino visto dal balcone ho fatto ben 6 pose veloci!

11 marzo. Tanti auguri a me! è il giorno del mio compleanno ed il terzo giorno della maratona “one week 100 people”. Disegno solo me, mia mamma e la prima foto che vedo sul sito di ANSA alle 21 in punto.

12 e 13 marzo. Sul traguardo. Ci mancava pure il venerdì 13! Nonostante tutto finisco le mie 100 persone. Ogni occasione è buona per disegnare: in coda al supermercato (rigorosamente a distanza di sicurezza), per strada, durante i flash mob quando si canta, si suona e si balla sui balconi. Italia vuole crederci e vuole farcela.

Il ritratto numero 100 è il mio autoritratto sullo sfondo azzurro come il simbolo della speranza.

Il 10 maggio 2020 il lockdown è finito, ma nulla è stato come prima…
