Painting as well as dancing is one of the oldest known arts. It emerged in prehistory and had the important function to register dangerous situations. The labels were made with the hands, using fruits, insects and other pigments extracted from the nature, as ink.
As time went by, the painting developed as a technique, gaining specific tools. The registration function has remained as a very important thing until the invention of photography in the nineteenth century. From then on, it was gaining increasingly strong status of art.
Even today, it can be said that painting is a way of representing the world under the artist’s eye. No longer attached to the accuracy of other times, painters are able to portray the world in a unique way, using abstract forms for example, with or without colors imparting sensations that make their works alive.
In the 6th episode of “What would the world be without?” we have invited to the great artist Alessandra Barbierato. Her creations reveal the deep essence of the human being, thus discarding the superficial layers.
From São Paulo, Barbierato is a product designer graduated at the Fine Art College in São Paulo, a Bachelor of Arts degree at USP and an artist. She studied drawing and painting in the studio of Professor José Paulo de Latorre.
Her work, often with huge dimensions, focuses on the human being and seeks to transfer to the canvas sensations such as anguish, anxiety, violence, despair and loneliness.
Her incredible collection has already passed through the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts to Carrousel du Louvre, Paris – France, Museum of New Art in Pärnu – Estonia, and many others in Brazil and Europe.
In 2017 Weedoo Studio of Arts And Films had the opportunity to develop a film as a business card for Alessandra’s work. The whole aesthetic concept was based on her paintings to give the feeling of immersion in the world of the artist. Know the result:
