Artist Residency with Federico de Cicco
10:00 to 19:00 Friday+ Saturday | 12:00 to 18:00 Sunday
Federico is an illustrator based in Brighton, UK. All his works are made by hand using pastels, inks and acrylics, and often a combination of the two. In the last few years he has focused mainly on the creation of editorial images for magazines as well as on poster designs, often communicating ideas linked to social or environmental issues. At the same time, he also produces more experimental images based on personal projects.
“Since the beginning of the year I have started drawing outdoors with charcoal pastels. I have been going to places of interest without a clear idea but sketching men in different locations. I visited places where men gather together or where they used to. I went to local organizations, public places and open spaces. During each visit, the experience was always characterized, in different degrees, by a sort of warmth. Men’s warmth that was in front of me during that moment or that used to be, before or a long time ago. This is something that can hardly be experienced if working on your own in the studio and which I was looking for in order to create a bridge between my works and the outside world. This is what constitutes the link between humans. ”
This residency has been organised in partnership with Hundred Years Gallery, which is only a short walk from GreatArt at 13 Pearson Street, London, E2 8JD
