AS IS | Sante Visioni


From Italy

Based in Japan

This time we talked with incredibly talented artist Sante Visioni about art, ways to talk about it and questions to ask.

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 who's 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 focus on developing 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 talking 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!
