Getting to know Alice
This lady knows where she is going, and knows what she wants!
A self assured woman, an attribute which shines through in her art, bold but meaningful, straight to the point, with colour enough to tell the story.
It's a pleasure to hook up with you Alice...
RD: Tell us where your from and where you live please and how long you've been an artist?
I am from Rome. Since I was a kid.
RD: Are you self taught?
No. My artistic background is Academic. I studied Fine Arts.
RD: What media do you use now and have you tried other media in the past ?
I am a multimedia artist. I specialized in old style animation and I worked as an illustrator and set designer. My tools are spray and posca.
RD: When your painting on the streets, what methods do you use and do the spots you graffiti influence the colours in your work?
I paint directly on the wall. Sometimes I use stencils, sometimes I paint directly by hand. The colours are influenced by the place, but as you can see I dont use so many colours.
RD: How do you feel Rome influences your works and do you feel the Roman authorities are a bit more lenient on street art because of the Italians age old love for design?
My taste is influenced by my culture. I can not say exactly how. But certainly I do not like pop culture.The authorities do not care about art. If you see them you better run in Rome as in any other part of the world.
RD: Could you tell us about the female inspirations in your art?
I am interested in female models different from street art cliche. I am often annoyed by female stereotypes proposed by artists where women are seen as sexual objects or cartoon heroines. I am seduced instead by real women, strong and independent women. In general, I am interested in the representation of human feelings.
RD: You also do set design, fill us in on that and what projects have you worked on recently?
