Hello! My name is Mattia Carlà, I come from Cavallino, in the province of Lecce. I currently study at the Academy of fine arts of Brera and work in Milan. In life I draw, I love music and I go skate, mainly.
I always knew it was the art of drawing, not because I was good at it, but because I really liked it. I have been aware of it after experiencing many other types of languages.
Not all of my work is born out of precision. For example, I created works for cd covers, logos or animations on the computer. Others, however, arise as pure exhortation and have no expressive or narrative pretense.
I think my home country has had an indirect influence. I appreciate the ancient art of Messapi, who was the ancient inhabitants of my area. Of this artistic culture, I feel very personal symbols.
At the moment I would say Ashton Dame, William Pacheco, and Caterina Dufi … The third is fortunate to know her.
I live in Milan for three years, so I’m not really informed. I know that there are some active spaces, such as the Knoss or Cantelmo workshops. As for official exhibition spaces, I know nothing. Having said that, I know many really good young artists in photography, painting, writing, and music. Many guys in my high school Ciardo have a great talent for example. There are several emerging bands that will soon get what they deserve.
1. Securely a magazine (online or printed) to make cultural and artistic promotion.
2. Remove funding for revaluation of things that then become parking or rotating and start opening up to INTERCULTURAL events.
3. Generally speaking, spaces are needed to create workshops and workshops, covering a thousand areas, not just that. You have to bring young people closer to culture, the world is going to roll do not know if you’ve noticed it.
In my opinion, we should all leave sooner or later, but for their own personal growth, not because of the need to run away from boredom and ignorance. My land Salento is a fantastic place for the views it gives us, the cuisine, the traditions, the sea … Unfortunately, the other face of the medal is that all this is polluted by a profound ignorance rooted in institutions and mafias … The change of route is a very generic thing, everyone has to realize if their place is in the south or elsewhere.
I am currently a member of the Urbino National Art Prize. In the near future, I’m going to finish the academy, and I have a few exams and theses. After that, I would like to take a few months to reorganize curriculum and portfolio. After that, I would like to travel a bit, evaluate a specialist somewhere. My goal of life is to have a campaign and a dog.
I have a strange concept of the term art, I can not link it with the word work. That said, I would say yes, but not in the immediate … I would like to finish my studio, where I can produce it with who I think when I think.
