Guido Pierandrei is an Italian artist whose paintings explore the reality of matter through vibrant colours, appealing textures and mixed techniques.How did you get into art?
I always created painted and craft since I remember, but I left it all and came back when God strongly entered in my life. Since then my work reflects this journey.
How would you describe your style? What makes your work special?
It is certainly abstract and informal expressionism but following metaphorical visons as starting point to action. The use of colors and shapes it is always functional to explore the reality of matter and “what lies beyond its veil” through vibrant colors, engaging textures and mixed techniques with Water which becomes the additional tool for determining and guiding colors. Where the canvas is no longer the place to lay the colors, rather, the means to accommodate as much water as possible in a total cooperation of elements. I think of reality as a stratification of levels, the hidden ones are what I imagine and look for; seeking doors that can carry consciousness elsewhere.
How do you go about developing your work?
I start from an internal point of view, a concept, a personal realization that I want to share, removed from the world perceived outside, then a symbolic vision and often a visual metaphor comes to my mind. Then the abstraction is brutally sudden, and Art becomes my way of reconnecting with my higher self and vision becomes apparent, then water and the movement of colors gently and intuitively accompanied by brush or other tools do the rest.
Who or what influences you?
Surely I could mention Rudolf Steiner with his book the essence of colors, Georges Ivanovich Gurdjieff and Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov, among the philosophers, and Joan Miró, Wassily Kandinsky, Mark Rothko and the impressionists among the artists.
Make us curious. What is planned next?
Certainly improve the ability of the message to arrive, and then I'm carrying out a very special project to me even if it is also very strange to think about it, which is called "Eden" which brings together a rare inert gas and Biogeometry or vibrational science by Dr Ibrahim Karim, making harmonic sounds, light and colors work together in harmony, and shape waves generated inside Platonic solids, in an experiment that combines art and science.Instagram
