9 Questions to Francesco De Prezzo. 

Italian artist, living and working in Milan, Italy.

.

What is your art about?

My research focuses on the topic of space. I like to challenge the relationship between body, space and dimension, raising questions about the physical and individual perception of these three elements. In some ways what I do is linked to an existentialist nihilist thought, in my work I often draw objects according to their presence or absence in space.

Please tell us more about your working process, routine, your studio set up and the way you approach new artworks.

I paint parts of my studio in general, just like an old-fashioned painter, with palette and oil colors. This takes me a lot of time. I would be very productive for a few days, another days I step out to upset or delete what I did in the previous days. Sometimes I do not even work on something, I just like being in the studio.

What is fertiliser for your work?

Any thought counts and has consequences when you make art, from the simplest events of my everyday life to the news or even movies, everything leaves a small trace on the art. Solitude also helps me a lot.

The last thing that struck me was a picture of a work by Michael E. Smith that I saw on instagram. And also Luca Guadagno’s movie “call me by your name”.

Have a beer with an artist of your choice? Whom?
