Hi everybody ! my name is Lisa Cutrino, I live in Bari and I study to the Academy of arts, in the painting course.
I have always had a strong interest in the arts even before attending high school in Lecce. By the time I learned to understand what I liked doing and what not. Now I can say that in my way to doing art I do not exclude anything, each instrument can be useful to make the best of the artwork.
My work is based on the representation of degradation in all its forms and on many times satirical denunciation. The end of my job is to communicate, to generate a positive and negative response to the viewer. My work is straightforward and easy to read, my subjects and my “scenery” always take everyday scenes or commonly items like an example.
Everything is a source of inspiration. I look around constantly, no matter where I am, I think the important thing is to create connections between thought and what we see. Even a poop in a flowerbed can be a source of inspiration.
I don’t know, I’m constantly surrounded by people working in this field, and as I said before I often look around, I take the positive and the negative from everything and I assimilate it.
There is a poor interest in the young artist and to the initiatives related to them, but we could do more. There is raw material, but we need to learn how to use it better.
Create prize contests, a workshop open to the public, space where you can make cyclical exhibitions. Emoticon glasses These are choices. I think that today you can make yourself known without going out of the puglia or italy. There are many competitions that allow this. Everything is in the artist’s skill in knowing how to move and let his work know to the public, propose himself in galleries, participate in competitions, make exhibitions. Everything can be a showcase and a source of visibility
I know artists who have decided to stay in Puglia and now they are international artists. You have to be determined and consistent to get results.
Finish the academy and devote 100% of my energy to my job. Future projects are many, perhaps too many.
There will certainly be an opportunity very soon.
