9 Questions to Nicolò Baraggioli.

Italian artist, living and working in London.

What is your art about?

My work expands outward from a central point of minimalism, into a world of texture, color, and material. I am interested in investigating the concept of space, boundary and the aesthetics. My works are representations of that exploration. Focusing mainly on painting, producing minimal abstract works using a combination of materials and a variety of different types of paint creating separate dialogues about simplicity and rigorousness, these works often reference found compositions as well as interests outside of art, such as philosophy, Greek mythology, movies, classical music and nature.

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

I work simultaneously on different works, in this way I can transfer concept and ideas from a piece to another creating a series of work with the same common denominator. To be honest I do not have a specific routine. I like to wake up very early in the morning and start working as soon as I have my breakfast (which is always fresh fruit and coffee). My studio is very simple, clean and tidy. I tend to read a lot of books about Greek tragedy and philosophy. It helps me a lot to develop ideas for new works.

What is fertiliser for your work?

 Architecture, design and nature.
