Street artist and painter, but also illustrator and set designer, from her own Rome Alice has managed to bring her pictorial ability (and not only) to the most important cities around the world, which mixes the narration of female vitality, a three-dimensional use of the works and the ability to create installations with the use of unusual materials.

This time her artistic choice is on surfaces like ancient doors, often abandoned and silent houses, preferring shady gates to more predictable plastered and white walls.

Faces of smiling girls, fingers that pluck the strings of a guitar and scenes of everyday life thus return to animate the most inaccessible areas of the village, those on which the wild Nature is returning to take over, slipping between the stones patiently placed one on the other from man over the centuries.

Gola

Gola Hundun was born in Cesena in 1982 and currently lives and works between Rimini and Barcelona. His artistic research takes inspiration from the deep reflection on the symbiotic  and conflicting relationship between the human being and the biosphere. This analysis, combined with the conscious decision to be a vegetarian at the age of sixteen, brings the artist and His poetic vision to be closer the animal sphere than into humans. Explore themes such as coexistence, ecology, shamanism, return to the earth, vegetarianism and spirituality.

Gola was formed at the artistic high school of Ravenna and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna; he became a street artist very young , at 12yo, and therefore well before his academic studies, through the experiences made with traditional graffiti. When he moved to Barcelona in 2004, the local street art scene strongly influenced his sign and pushed him again to relate to the public space. Over time, His artistic journey leads Gola to visit many countries by creating collective and personal projects and exhibitions in São Paulo in Brazil, Jenin in Palestine, Moscow in Russia, Tokyo in Japan, Almaty in Kazakhstan and recently in Miami in the USA and in Santo Domingo in Dominican Republic.

The visual universe that Gola Hundun creates always Allegorical reinterpretations and takes inspiration from the various cultures that he met and still continues to meet as well while traveling. Parallel to the pictorial work, which is made both on traditional surfaces and on the wall, Gola creates installations in the context of the public space, incorporating natural materials, fabrics, live plants, lights, and live performances.

Resilienza (2017/2017) by BosolettiAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

Bosoletti

Francisco Bosoletti (1988) was born in Armstrong, a small town in the central area of ​​Argentina, where he still lives today. Basoletti has always been away from the clamor of the graffiti scene of the big cities and he has been developing over the years a painting street art which enhances his interest in classical art. 

Resilienza (2017/2017) by BosolettiAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

Taking advantage from the fact that he lives in an area where he is free to intervene on spaces without any restrictions, the small city where he lives has become his studio, a privileged place where he can continue nurturing his artistic work.

Resilienza (2017/2017) by BosolettiAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

In recent years Bosoletti has concentrated its production in Italy, with the realization of various projects that include both works in public spaces and research in his studio. Just after his arrival in Italy, Bosoletti's work began to receive great interest. This gave him the opportunity to gain a prominent place in the context of international urban art and allow him to take part in events throughout Europe and America.

Alex Senna

Alex Senna (1982) is from Sao Paulo in Brazil. He began painting on the street in an attempt to reinvent the extreme poverty of his country of origin with the tools and languages of illustration, comics and old graffiti from the nineties. 

Untitled (2017/2017) by Alex SennaAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

His art proposal leads with the intention of creating and strengthening human relationships, relying on vivid expressions that illuminate the monotony of everyday life.

Untitled (2017/2017) by Alex SennaAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

A playful, poetic and fascinating world: that’s Senna!A great folk tale full of universal signals , drawn from a child's imagination: hearts, birds, musical notes, balloons, in most cases traced in a black and white poetic.

Untitled (2017/2017) by Alex SennaAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

There is no solution of continuity between the lines on in his drawings and the lines on his notebooks and the solid brushstrokes affixed by the street artist on the cities’ walls, marking the Urban context with a vision full of simplicity and strong feelings at the same time. The delicate art of Alex Senna offers an alternative way to the harshness that urban art often takes on.

Maria Pia Picozza

Drawing is the start point from which the artistic investigation starts, from that point the research is refined with multiple media: sculpture, photography, audio, animation, interaction, creating large sculptural installations, short stories that often come back to the original sketch translated into 3D  and amplified by refreshed sensorial elements. The recurring thread  of the investigation is the Memory : sedimented and crystallized which thanks to 3D notes and stories is recalled and articulated with traces, maps and real coordinates and imaginations in which space and time overlap in a single unique level.

Untitled (2017/2017) by NespoonAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

Nespoon

She creates “Positive Vibes  Art” working with only good emotions and All her artistic works  to them are dedicated. Sometimes trough her works she takes position about social and political problems to solve  relevant for her . Most of her works contain traditional lace patterns, pressed in clay or painted on the walls. 

Untitled (2017/2017) by NespoonAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

Why lace? Because it contains an universal aesthetic code that can be understood from everybody all over the world: harmony, balance and natural order. Isn't that what we're all looking for? Isn’t this one the porpoise of the street art? Freedom !

Untitled (2017/2017) by UNOAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

UNO

In the 2017 exhibitions UNO chooses unusual supports for his works. Thanks to the using  of the stencil technique, the artist creates very poetic interventions , almost impalpable mood : his poetic is driven by a fragrant wind elsewhere that entrusts the walls and doors of Civitacampomarano with the vision of precious origami and very light paper sheets in free fall, without weight, abandoned tools of a children's game, which maybe could contain messages and promises, news from the past that is waiting for a better future to reveal its mystery.

By updating the lesson of Warhol, Debord and Rotella, UNO stands out for practicing an art that takes up the lesson of advertising communication but changing its own imprinting.

Untitled (2017/2017) by UNOAssociazione Culturale CivitArt

Main Characteristics of his works are the endless repetition of the same image and the use of sprays and fluorescent paints in combination with poster, collage, decoupage and in general the technique of paper manipulation.

The symbolic face of the famous advertising of a chocolate is made by UNO an icon of the possible revolution of the single human being against mass media .
