Renowned artists and master potters create their works for the “heatArt” line directly on the shapes and surfaces of the Project the Sign radiators
For more than thirty years Domiziani has revolutionized the way of thinking about stone. His craft techniques are the result of careful research and knowledge of the subject: involving the meticulous work of those who know how to see beyond, transforming the unexpected into a formula of uniqueness. The eclectic and resistant combinations in lava and volcanic stone are the effect of the processes that change the shape of the material through the idea, fixed and tempered in an oven that forges its identity.
A system of reactions that investigates the infinite possibilities of a single material: it is this way that every Domiziani piece holds the soul of the material and expresses it in all its sides thanks to a good craftsmanship job. In the heart of Italy, where ceramics are a tradition and a passion embodied in the territory DNA, Domiziani finds his own identity by melting nature and art into recognizable products and loved in every part of the world. Every project is unrepeatable and brings with itself differences in nature, the touch of man and the power of fire, in a combination of uniqueness which make every product unrepeatable.
Digital artist, engineer by profession, was born in Cles (Tn) in 1964. The passion for art led him, from the monochrome drawings of the 80s and 90s, to the more recent “digital painting”, obtaining critical acclaim and considerations.
The iPad screen becomes his virtual canvas on which he draws with his fingers, tracing geometries and shapes that break down and recompose, recalling the most abstract cubism, Miro’s dream-like images and Kandinsky’s “scribbles”. The works are then reproduced on different supports (aluminum, glass, polycarbonate, ceramic, fabrics and leather) giving life to the finished work.
The artist since 2018 is part of ADAC-MART, Archive of Contemporary Artists of Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Trento and Rovereto. From 2020 he is present in a showroom in via Monte Napoleone, Milan, as a representative of digital painting among the Italian excellences.
Busetti exhibits in solo and group exhibitions and his digital works are present in public and private collections in Italy and abroad.
His work has been featured in many editorial publications and websites. Critics: A.Pasolino, D. Radini Tedeschi, R. Perdicaro, F. Pelligra.
Andrea Cagnetti – aka Akelo (from Acheloo, Greek god of waters) – is an Italian sculptor, designer and goldsmith. He is considered one of the greatest authorities in the world in the field of ancient goldsmithing.
Countless publications, reviews and television appearances dedicated to him, which emphasize not only the talent and stylistic originality of the artist, but also the value of his research, subject of study in many art institutes.
Akelo was born in 1967 in Corchiano (Viterbo), a town built from the ancient ruins of the Etruscan city Fescennia, where the culture of the Etruscan populations is still alive. Educated, since childhood, in art and beauty, he begins a spiritual journey and research, with the aim of probing the meanders of ancient thought, through alchemical and esoteric readings and exhausting metallurgical experiments.
The artist likes to define himself as an ancient soul, a Renaissance man who lives in the 21st century, with existential rules that has the rhythm of the mantra “Pray, read, read, read, re-read, work and then you will find”, taken from the volume Mutus Liber.
In the belief that, only thanks to a profound passion, discipline and real motivation, inner elevation and levels of excellence can be achieved.
Akelo’s works – unique of their kind, of inestimable value and technically inimitable – appear only in some moments in history and seem to participate in the endless evolution of civilization, almost precious pieces of a mosaic, in which past, present and future are they follow in a fluid and linear way.
If, on the one hand, they preserve the values and knowledge of antiquity, on the other, they assume a contemporary identity, an expression of the artist’s visionary nature. Which, in a nutshell, “draws” from the past to “create” the present in a constant projection towards the absolute.
Andrea Cagnetti’s works are exhibited in various national and international exhibitions, and in recent years some have been acquired by important museums and private collections.
ICS Ceramics is in Giffoni Valle Piana on the Picentini mountains, a territory of expert potters and ancient clays immediately behind the Vietri coast.
Over the years the company, thanks to the collaboration of designers and artists, has experimented with shapes and decorations by combining technical skills, local traditions, innovation and international suggestions, without ever forgetting its vocation to “handmade” according to ancient artisan techniques, but rather making it the recognizable figure of a refined and exclusive production.
Francesco Paolantoni is an Italian actor, comedian and playwright. He was born on March 3, 1956 in Naples.
“In the beginning was the bread. It is thanks to this element that I began to find a new expression through my mosaic paintings. This is because, as always, during dinners, evidently out of neurosis, I made hundreds of cubes of bread (I should also investigate why I make cubes and not balls as everyone does, but I prefer to avoid knowing). One day I decided to give these cubes a meaning, a reason, and then I began to compose subjects, figures, ideas that have now become another form of communication for me.
However, I was forced to change material: the bread, however noble it might be, made ‘e pappici, invincible little animals that ate on bread, and in this case, of the paintings themselves, living paintings, which were self-eating, a disturbing thing. And then I moved on to my second phase, with the equally noble but imperishable clay, and now I move on to the third, in which I am using leather for the moment: soft paintings. I don’t know where I’ll get to, mah. ”
