Interview with Andrea Solaja, the Figurative Artist of Light and Dark

Andrea Solaja has not long ago joined Rise Art, bringing her diverse portfolio of summary paintings and sculptures to the platform.

How would you explain your creative design and style?

At the age of 10, I have experienced a awful daily life practical experience: my state was bombed.

My sole source of relief to escape from the horrors of these days was imagining worlds and developing stories within the light of the only candle I had. The shadows projected on the partitions would change into the shapes of the at any time altering figures of my creativeness, I can see my fingers weaving  evanescent aspects which blended with the condensation and the cold. That light shone on an outer house which was too little for a kid. I experienced to create a single to come to be inside, enormous.

I keep my childhood and its goals inside of that tiny flame. I sealed the darkness I had within with the wax and with the wick I tied the reminiscences of a daily life which was not heading to be mine anymore.

My art unfolds all over the narration of that light. My paintings are symbionts of the game of contrasting light-weight and dark which narrate without having revealing, which drain my inner feelings on the canvas blocking the styles from turning into road blocks.

What messages or themes do you want to talk with your get the job done?

I paint the stories that strike my chords, with which I perceive a bond.

As a tailor, I wrap my canvas all-around you to make you grow to be the artwork that you want to narrate. Your previous, your perceptions and your feelings are reworked as the warp and weft of a special tale which has eventually been unveiled. Yours.

How has your follow evolved in excess of the years? Have you constantly worked in an abstract fashion?

Great query.

To be genuine, I have hardly ever believed about it.

In phrases of method, I’m not capable to say greater or worst, let’s say that I have found my mark, my perception. Isn’t this what every single artist aspires to?

My love for Figurative fashion hasn’t alter, but my sight surely has and that is why lots of folks outline my artwork, Abstract.

‘’Nearsightedness’’ is my system, but the model is even now Figurative.

What’s an common day like in your studio? 

Oh, you would be so bored paying out time with me in the studio!

I am so immersed in analysis and in my thoughts that I obtain it tough to be present in the terrestrial earth. I’m extremely gradual in output of my art and the purpose of this slowness is thanks to a ton of analysis guiding every artwork: it starts from the story I want to tell and how I want it to be explained to the preference of the content that greatest fits the tale hrs of sketching… As soon as I have the distinct thought in my head of the ultimate final result, properly which is the instant I commence with the output.

What/Who are your vital influences?


I have always had a enthusiasm for artists who have long gone against the tide, due to the fact you want to imagine in opposition to the tide if you want to have actually revolutionary suggestions. Caravaggio, Artemisia Gentileschi, Marcel Duchamp, Banksy, Lucio Fontana… to identify a few. Folks usually evaluate my functions with Caravaggio’s mainly because of the darkness and I’m wonderful with that if we want to summarise briefly my artwork.

But, the truth of the matter is distinct. I’m obsessed with the tales powering every Artist and their time, the modern society they lived in, but largely the motive which pushed them to make that variety of artwork, their psychology, their soul, their ideas and uncertainties…


I’m a huge lover of Greek mythology, omnipresent in my function.

Who are some Increase Art artists with function you happen to be making the most of at the minute?

Basically a whole lot of them, these kinds of as Iain Andrews, Michele Fletcher, but Johanna Bath’s functions are undoubtedly my favourite. Her art reminds me of Gerhard Richter’s blurry series, but enriched with a feminine contact.


Are you currently doing work on any thrilling new tasks?

My last challenge was ‘’Semi di Luce’’ for ‘’LUCE’’ Artwork Exhibition in Palermo and it was these types of an incredible experience. September is all over the corner with a great deal of enjoyable assignments that I simply cannot hold out to share with you! But now, I require some rest!
