AS IS | Sante Visioni

Artist

From Italy

Based in Japan


This time we talked with the incredibly talented artist Sante Visioni about his art journey, nature of inspiration, ways to talk about the creative world, and much more




A: Please, tell us a bit more about yourself. What brought you into art?


S: I’ve been drawing since I was a kid because it has always been an activity that helped me express myself. I think sliding into the art world was just a consequence of a natural inclination.



A: What inspires you the most?


S: Listening to people’s stories.



A: Do you have any specific rituals while working(creating)?


S: Nope.



A: What would you recommend to someone new to art (rather artist or just an admirer), what to begin with?


S: To an artist, I would suggest avoiding comparing with others and focusing on the development of their own vision. To an admirer, to not force themselves to understand what they are looking at.



A: Your top 3 favorite adjectives related to art?


S: Cool. Solid. Sold.





A: The best angle to look at art is from?


S: I think in front of it…?



A: The Perfect phrase to start any conversation about art is:

S: I usually say “Ciao”



A: Must-read books to talk about art (or do we even need them)?


S: Just reading books (not necessarily about art) helps you talk about everything.



A: If you could change one thing in the art world - what would it be?


S: Sometimes haughtiness is out of place.



A: Please, share your favorite quote (not necessarily related to art)


S: I recently read: Winners don’t think they need to learn anything. Probably not my favorite, but happy to share it.



Thank you!
