Outdoor Festival – Interview w/ Kid Acne, Sam3, Motorefisico, Scorpion Dagger e Madame

5 questions to 5 artists.
Ready? 3,2,1 go!

Tell me five words you love and five you hate.

Kid Acne: “You are an amazing artist”/”You should be more successful” 

Sam3: I can resume to you also in 1 word, love freedom –  hate nonsense.

Motorefisico: We love every word with a special feeling for “motorefisico”.

Scorpion Dagger: I love these words for no other reason other than they’re monosyllabic (I love one syllable words), and fun to say: Pants, Goof, Booze, Dude, Sweet. I hate these words because annoying people I know obsess over them: Intelligence, Controversial, Globalist, Edgy, Deep State.

Madame: I love: WORDS, NATURE, FIGHT, NOSTALGY, SURPRISE. I hate: INTOLERANCE, STUPIDITY, IMPOSSIBLE, RAIN, INDIFFERENCE.

What is the best thing about the city you came from?

Kid Acne: My friends. 

Sam3: I came from a small village and the best thing is that I scaped from there.

Motorefisico: Caos, traffic, the fact that living in Rome it’s not for everyone. 

Scorpion Dagger: Montreal is an extremely creative, fun, and affordable place to live. It has an openness and feels that makes it truly unique to North America.

Madame: THE FOOD! 

How and When did you start “making art”?

Kid Acne: I have made art in some shape or form for as long as I can remember. I’ve always drawn. Drawing is probably my preferred form of communication in all honesty. I began painting graffiti when I was 12 and shortly after, I began making fanzines and comics. I learned to screen print when I was 15 and made my first record when I was 17. I designed and printed the sleeves myself. The same year, I exhibited my first canvas in a group show called ‘Graffiti Bastards’ in Birmingham, UK. From there, I got my first commercial jobs, designing club flyers, T-shirts and record sleeves for other people, which lead to more work, while simultaneously painting Graffiti and Street Art. All these outlets have informed my ‘style’. I’ve been steadily refining that style over the past 20 – 25 years. 

Sam3: I never did art i just draw.

Motorefisico: After that one of us, Gianmaria, almost died for a bacterium in his brain. When he resurrected, we decided to do something of our life. Our first drawings have been made under a bridge three years ago.

Scorpion Dagger: I’ve been making art for as long as I can remember. My parents were always great at encouraging my brother and I to express ourselves through creativity.

Madame: I started when i was a kid because i come from an artistic familly. My granpa was a painter and my dad as well. So my parents put me in front of paper and colors rather than TV.

What are you proposing here for the Outdoor Festival?

Kid Acne: The brief we were given this year was ‘Heritage’. I was thinking about our current place within the timeline of history and how we’ve arrived at where we are today. I was also thinking about my own role within the narrative of Graffiti and Street Art and where my work fits into the bigger picture of this huge, international movement. I have painted a slogan that reads HERE WE ARE. In the context of the exhibition, both the artist and audience have undoubtedly taken different routes in life, yet for this brief moment, we have come together and arrived at the same point within this physical space, so HERE WE ARE (but how did we get here?). For me, it is also about acknowledging the present moment as well as whatever life throws at us, all the nonsense in the world that we can’t control – “Well, here we are. So, I guess we had better make the most of it!”. The artwork will last for 1 month before it is painted over. It’s ephemeral. I like that. It makes it more special somehow. 

Sam3: It’s a video I did when I was living in Rome for a while, the video justifies itself.

Motorefisico: For the Outdoor we have drawn something that could be confusing. Our work is called “Labirinto Semplice” (Easy Labyrinth”) and it’s a hallway where you can lose yourself. 

Scorpion Dagger: Landscapes, scenes of nature, interrupted.

Madame: I’m proposing a new way to interprete the michelangelo’s Pieta, with the light of my modern culture. Just a way to create dialogue between past and present, as i usually do in my work.

What do you see in the future? 

Kid Acne: I have no idea what the future holds, but I hope it involves more projects like, where people are brought together in real life, rather than just through social media. The internet is a fantastic tool and has lots of positives in terms of connecting us, but has a lot of negatives too. I don’t think it’s good to be experiencing so much of life through tiny screens with preordained algorithms. From a creative perspective, I plan to continue exploring the ideas currently present in my work – the slogans, the architectural studies and the female warriors (known as Stabby Women). I’m also working on a new Kid Acne music project. Don’t call it a comeback! 

Sam3: Human bones. 

Motorefisico: In an hour we’ll be at lunch. It’s difficult to see further. 

Scorpion Dagger: I’m an optimist, so I see things, on a whole, getting better; Even Though, oftentimes, it doesn’t feel that way.

Madame: I love the surprises!

Short video for Breakfast – Balcony, a wake up call to react

Short video for Breakfast – Balcony, a wake up call to react

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art

Sometimes the simplest ideas conceal the most powerful meanings.
A place that should protect us can become a cage, a space that should allow us to stay in contact with the outside becomes the only window on the world.

Balcony, the short video by animator Davide Dell’Edera of the Budapest-based Airplan studio, is a wake up call to react.

To defend us from a daily life that often imprisons, obliges, bores and does not allow to express basic or fundamental needs.
A scream that breaks the silence causing an intense reaction that initially dismays, and a few seconds later, comes clear and strong as a punch in our stomach.

Mini People In The Jungle, the mystical animals of Dawid Planeta

Mini People In The Jungle, the mystical animals of Dawid Planeta

Giulia Ficicchia · 2 years ago · Art

Fear can be the best friend or the worst ally of a person, it can freeze him or her or it can push him or her to do more. The reality is that when a little bit of courage comes and the person decides to get close to it, to watch it, to study it, he or she recognizes to be bigger than it and he or she transforms it in a memory.

The Polish artist and graphic designer, Dawid Planeta, has transformed his fear, or rather his depression, in illustrated animals with eyes full of lights, apparently frightening, huge animals, whose eyes hides something more than a desire to flee in front of them, behind them there’s joy, passion, that you obtain going through that unpleasant sensation that they initially provoke on you. The human characters in this illustrated series, Mini People in The Jungle, do that, standing, getting close, sometimes with open arms, as they want to invite the animals to not be afraid of them.

The depression becomes for Dawid an occasion to be more creative, to give it a form, to study it, to know it and to transform it from an enemy to an artistically.

Asian Fake The Origin, a comic that tells the label aesthetics

Asian Fake The Origin, a comic that tells the label aesthetics

Giulia Pacciardi · 2 years ago · Art, Music

To tell the story of the label, its intent, its aesthetics and substance, Asian Fake has launched Asian Fake The Origin, the number zero of a comic that tells the Milanese label through a different expressive form.
Entirely realized by Marco Locati, one of the most talented Italian cartoonists, Asian Fake The Origin tells the stories of the artists linked to the label, Coma_Cose, Frenetik & Orang3, Sorrowland, Martina May, Venerus, Fuera, Fil, Megha, Ketama126, Pretty Solero and Drone126, who become atypical heroes of a fresh and urban contemporaneity.

The comic, made in only 200 limited edition copies, can be won through a contest launched on the label’s official social channels and, subsequently, put on sale.
But if you already want to get an idea, you can go on the Instagram profile dedicated to the project or take a look at the boards we’ve selected for you.
