The Joy of Creation


Dear readers, I am dedicating this edition to a wonderful human being and a great humanitarian, obsessive with novels, poetry, paintings and art generally. A person with a huge heart, passionate about everything he ever did. To my father, whom I unfortunately lost on this month, eleven years ago. He gave me his eyes, his smile, passion, courage and will, a strong positive energy that leads me through life. He was a big child, just as I am. Some are saying that I am afraid to grow up, some that I am not mature enough, some are just smiling, but in spite of all that, and all of them, I will stay true to myself for the rest of my life. I will love purely and unconditionally, I will dream, fantasize, hope and believe, and I will never be able to hate. I am a child. I am playing, and Musetouch is my playground. I thank Ljiljana Bursac, Jelena Grujic, my Nini Baseema, Ian Furniss, Gines Serran, Mark Sadan and all of you, for playing with me :)

Zoe Lacchei

Zoe Lacchei grew up in a small town near Rome, kind of a quiet place far from the chaos of the city , where her bashful and introvert character probably originates and made her an atypical human being. Being isolated has given her a great abstraction and escapism ability, two characteristics which form the basis of her work as an adult. After high school, rather than attending regular academic courses, she focused on the subjects she loved the most, such as human anatomy and Japanese culture. This last one has affected her enormously: she simply adores Japan, with its contradictions and oddities, with its great sense for the art of image, in a traditional and at the same time modern way, given by Manga, Anime and videogames. If she hadn’t come in contact with this world her artistic production would have been very different. Now she is a popular Italian Artist, known also in USA and Japan. Eclectic, passionate, Zoe Lacchei has published several works and has taken part to many exhibitions. Her unmistakable style is a fusion of several traditional techniques and materials. In April 2004 she realized thirteen paintings for the Marilyn Manson’s Gold Disc (Golden Age of the Grotesque), collected afterwards in the original portfolio: Metamorphosis, the art of Zoe Lacchei. Her work on Marilyn Manson’s visual evolution has crucially marked her artistic career, on a graphic level but also in terms of visibility. A 4-year project that allowed her to distance herself from her former working style, an unprecedented opportunity to be “free” to create whatever she wanted to. Her professional agreement with Marilyn Manson has been going on: in 2007 she realized a new painting for the Gold Disk for the new album Eat Me, Drink Me. In 2007 she completed nine new paintings for the Geisha Project. Since 2007 she has been the owner of a studio-gallery in Rome.

Mia Araujo

An En

Born and raised in Los Angeles, Mia Araujo has long been fascinated by stories and characters, and the multi-faceted complexity that makes each person unique. Mia believes that all individuals contain an entire universe within them, which is invisible to the naked eye. Her work concentrates on giving shape to the unseen forces within her subjects— their thoughts, memories, emotions, and complex histories. These qualities fit together to form a vast, rich inner-landscape of identity and mythology for her characters. Mia draws inspiration from everything, but especially fairy tales, performance art, vintage photography, music, literature, animation, and world cultures. In May 2007, Mia Araujo graduated as valedictorian from Otis College of Art and Design, with a BFA in Illustration and a minor in Creative Writing. The 23-year-old currently shows her work in prominent pop-surrealist galleries across the US. Her work has been published in Imagine FX, Spectrum, Juxtapoz Magazine, Society of Illustrators LA, and the Creative Quarterly.

Jenny Marie S Tell me who is Jenny...

I’m just a 30 year old Print Production Artist quietly slaving away in the agency world by day while enjoying life in my adopted city of Chicago with my boyfriend of 8 years. I earned a B.F.A. in Graphic Design from a fine art school in Washington D.C. and then continued to live and work there for another 6 years before making the move to Chicago in 2008. My artistic background began with traditional mediums, my favorite being oil painting. Seriously though, you name it, I’ve probably worked with it. I’m completely self-taught when it comes to Digital Art. Why do you create, what is the purpose of your art? I create because, well…I just have this urge to create. I was born with it. It’s completely unexplainable and I don’t know where it comes from. My purpose is to add permanence to the ideas and images that drift through my head and hopefully, at the same time, create something visually pleasing that others will enjoy. Where is your inspiration coming from? My inspiration is a difficult thing to pinpoint. It comes from all over the place, but mostly from books, movies, contemporary and classical artists, fairy tales and more often than not, the stock photograph itself. All these things combine to create images that appear in my mind that must be captured and kept in digital form. There is a gentle touch of gothic in most of your creations...does that mean that you are fan of the Victorian era? Oh Absolutely!I find quite a bit of inspiration in Victorian fashion. I also really love the Rococo Era.

In my Mind

musetouch musetouch 127 127


Is 21st century right time for you, also...is Chicago the right place? Realistically…yes. As a digital artist, I certainly couldn’t create my artwork without 21st century technology. As a PrintProduction Artist, Chicago is one of the best places to be for agency work. Unrealistically, I think I could be perfectly happy living as a 18th century French Aristocrat. When do you usually create...are you a night bird like most of the artist are... or everything is a matter of that special moment of inspiration? I create when the mood strikes me. Sometimes I have no desire to create anything, and other times it’s all I want to do. It’s very unpredictable. Inspiration can hit me in the middle of a Tuesday morning meeting or on a Saturday night out at a bar. What famous artists have influenced you, and how? Caravaggio and Bernini have been long-time favorites of mine. Contemporary favorites include Mark Ryden, Ray Caesar and Christopher Shy. The Pop Surrealist movement influences me above all. The mix of the familiar with the unexplainable appeals to my thought processes. It’s cute, mysterious and dark all at the same time. That is something I have always strived for in my artwork. You create in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign...do you think that modern way of creating is giving an artist more freedom than classical techniques? I think the answer to that all depends on the individual artists. But for me, digital art was something totally new and challenging after so many years of working with traditional mediums. With photo-manipulation, I sometimes feel like I have less freedom. My work is derived from stock photography, so sometimes it can be difficult to find that one perfect photo or texture. The level of familiarity and skill one has with the programs used to create digital art can also restrict artistic freedom. How do you see yourself in the future? I can’t tell you. Trying to picture how I want my future to look often leads to disappointment down the road. I’d rather be surprised. I only hope to be happy and still creating artwork to my full potential. MS

Michel Ogier

Michel Ogier was born beneath aerial bombardments on the 19th December in St Etienne in France. In 1960 he joined the Bellecour print works in Lyon to learn the trade of retoucher in heliogravure and for sole baggage at that date “a prize for an ardent disposition for gambling”. During this period, he liked Maurice de Vlaminck for his tormented skies, Bernard Buffet for his rigid lines, George Dumensil de Latour for his purity and Salvador Dali for his imagination. Even if he painted a few small gouaches at this time, as sincere as they were clumsy, he was still a very long way from visualising a path of creation. In 1968 he left France for Switzerland. He worked in the Imprimerie Populaire de Lausanne and revelation comes. In 1971, as an expert, he participated in the new and extended edition of the illustrated monography: Leonor Fini (Constantin Jelenski/la Guilde du Livre et Clairefontaine). He was to hold in his hands the slides reproducing the painter’s works. In 1974 Michel returned to France. He lived off the land for a few years then, he organised stays for young people on the farm where he experienced a new found freedom in sight of the Vercors. A born builder, he endlessly restored the property to satisfy the needs of the group during term time. In 1983 He built his first real studio and during the next year he created seven paintings. His works were then shown to Monsieur Jean Augis, president of the Fine Arts Society of Lyon, who immediately suggested he should take part in the Lyon Salon de Printemps. Today, Michel is a well respected painter and his artworks are in many private collections and galleries worldwide. “Nothing will be rejected, expelled. Everything will take part in the meeting, the osmosis. I think the edification of my painting rests on a yes! A yes, which will be the taking in consideration the acknowledgement of what is. You cannot deny anything about existence without mutilating yourself. Painting is for me the phenomenal good fortune of awareness. Painting not only what I am, but also all of what I am. That is my ambition and my research, which somewhere agrees with yours.” Michel Ogier

Martial Rossig Martial Rossignol was born in 1958. After studies in economics and multimedia, he became professor. Since 1995, he became professional pohotographer. Martial lives and works in Arras, France. “My work is not only based on photography but also on literature. My aim is to make the audience discover photographic fictions by creating original universes. Fiction can be seen as a large space of freedom allowing us to keep our distance from reality, to get deliberately far from outward answers as well as to get lost out of a pre-limited real world. My photographs all appear as showing some actual and genuine stage. In my photographic fictions, the pictures have no origin which can be tracked down, no pre-determined stories, no planned future. The eye and the mind get lost into their depth by creating some possible scenarios or by raising questions. Each photograph is an actual perspective, a snapshot we know nothing about, with no caption. It is an insolvable mystery triggerring some sort of deciphering, some utterly subjective reading, with various hypotheses. What I am interested in is the resistance offered to the eye of the onlookers by the created picture and the meaning they try to discover in it. A picture is a very particular sign which can be interpreted but which cannot be truly deciphered. The language which is used through the speaking image is that of its onlookers who get involved in their own analyses when watching it.” Martial Rossignol

Canuto Kallan Canuto Kallan was born in 1960 in Copenhagen, Denmark. Before studying at the Athens School of Fine Arts, he graduated in 1989 from the Technical College of Copenhagen as a cabinet-maker and was awarded the Silver Medal for Woodworking by the Queen of Denmark. At the same time he was studying at the Technical University of Denmark, from where he graduated in 1990 as a Mechanical Engineer (Master of Science ίn Engineering). In 2003 he graduated with distinction from the Athens School of Fine Arts, where he studied painting and later on printmaking. During the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa he was invited to represent Denmark as one of the five Danish artists in the “2010 Fine Art” world art event and exhibition. Canuto Kallan and the Danish musician Morten Carlsen (member of the famous jazz and world music orchestra, “The New Jungle Orchestra”) started an interdisciplinary cooperation transforming images to music and vice versa in November 2010. Until today he has presented his work in 4 solo shows in Denmark and Greece and has participated in numerous group shows.He is a member of the Greek Chamber of Fine Arts and the Danish Association of Visual Artists. Since 1993 he lives and works in Athens. The works of Canuto Kallan can be found in collections such as: The Collection of Papadrielleiou Gallery in Komotini Greece, the Greek head office of Burmeister & Wain - ΜΑΝ, Piraeus, the Hotel Creta Maris, Crete, the Hotel Knossos Beach, Crete, the head office of Postscriptum, Athens, and private collections.

When did you first realize you are an artist? Art has always played a big role in my life. As a child I was into both music and painting. I was 10 when I won my first prize for one of my paintings. Regarding music I started with the recorder, I continued with violin and viola and ended up on the saxophone. At university,

The Joy of Creation

musetouch 199


when I studied engineering, I could not practice so freely on my saxophone because I was living in a dormitory, so I turned into painting in order to be able to satisfy my inner need for self - expression. I started covering the walls of my room with drawings and colours. Later on, during a trip to Tuscany, I met an icon painter who asked me to become his pupil. Unfortunately, he died a few months before I could complete my studies and then be taught by him. He kindly bequeathed me all of his icons so that I could study and be inspired by them. In the meantime I received the First Prize for the piece of furniture that I had created for my cabinetry thesis in Denmark. The scholarship I received made it possible for me to come to Greece. There I resumed my study of icon painting which then led me to the Athens School of Fine Arts. So I guess it was more a process of my inner needs than a sudden realization that led me to become a painter. Can you tell me more about yourself and your art? The colours in my paintings are probably what characterize my work, and is for a big part the reason for me to paint. I presume this influence comes from my childhood in Denmark, where the nature is grey for 6 months of the year. In the winter it is very dark and often foggy. When it snows it is beautiful and bright, but then the only colour is the blue of the sky. That time of the year was a nightmare for me, while spring, when nature is bursting forth with flowers of all colours and green leaves on the trees, was my rebirth! I live in Athens, which is a crowded place. So my paintings are mainly about people and the relations among them. But when I occasionally paint outside Athens I use the nature as a source of inspiration. Actually my palette became much clearer and stronger following a trip to a Greek island in springtime. The colours in the Greek nature are usually very dull and dusty most of the year, except during the spring. What inspires you to create art and how do you keep motivated yourself? I usually start out from something I “see� that moves my sensations. It may be something I see during day to day life or a photo, a thought or simply a colour and then, based on my feelings, I then proceed. Before I start a painting, I may have a clear idea about what I would do, but usually only for a start and then I follow a path on the canvas. However, I am not in a position to define what leads me during this process. Often it feels like a struggle with myself and the colours. The canvas becomes my battlefield. Many think that an artist waits for the inspiration to come on him, but that is not the way it works, at least for me and most of my colleagues I know off. Inspiration comes by working. One idea gives room to more ideas to come in.

musetouch 201


Is the subject important to you, or do you simply paint to express yourself? It is a combination of both. The subject may be the reason to start out but the actual process of painting leads me to satisfaction. At a certain point I don’t think of the subject anymore but only what happens on the canvas in terms of forms, colours, harmonies etc. Your paintings have a lot of strong emotions in them, are they yours or the subjects emotions? I try to be honest with my emotions, so it is my emotions that guide me in the creation, and not so much emotions I try to put into my subjects. In the end I guess it’s a combination of mine and the spectator’s emotions that the spectator feels in front of the final picture. It is the same about what we see in a picture. What we understand and see is according to our personal experiences. We don’t always comprehend or interpreter images the same way. What artists have influenced you, and how? I could mention two experiences that influenced me intensively; the first was a retrospective exhibition of Emil Nolde’s works and, the second, my visit to the Edvard Munch Museum during a trip to Norway. I believe these two artists was an inspiration to me for wanting to paint much more. I have also been influenced by Marc Chagall and not to forget the Co.Br.A movement to mention a few more. But actually the list is very long. The influence is not always very clear or conscious. Once something has moved us it stays inside us and may come out when we least expect it. What’s the best and worst part of being an artist? The best part is very obvious; you do something you love and cannot live without doing it. To create is a very basic human function that gives satisfaction and pleasure. So in this sense I am very fortunate. The worst part of being an artist are really many and of various substances. Beside the economic problems most artists are facing, I believe the worst part is that the artists’ role is being ignored and especially in times of crisis, like this we are going through now. Art is being regarded as luxury and not something that can bring new ideas and inspiration for creating new ways of facing life and its problems. Big sums are so easily spend on destruction, weapons and wars and so difficult so small amounts are spend on art, that can create much better environments, give new experiences, bring people together etc.

Could you talk about your latest series of paintings and what you are trying to achieve with them? In March 2011 I had my latest show in Athens called “Greener on the Other Side”. It includes paintings that aim at the exploration of the inner and outer world and the projection of the emotional perception of human existence. The title of the exhibition, which is a Danish saying, implies the tendency we have to believe that the “opposite side of the shore”, the “other” reality which we do not experience, is a better, “greener” place - like another “Promised Land”, an unknown world that we idealize. During hard times, this illusion becomes often a conviction and an obsession that obstructs us from paying attention to, and living in, the “here and now”, and from finding our way out through the difficulties in a creative manner. It is a state of mind we all now and then is going through. For the time being it is very apropos in my Greek circles. If you are about to paint your last painting ever...what and how it would be? I know what you mean, but actually every painting is my last painting in the very moment I create them. The way I work, as I mentioned before, makes it absurd for me to talk about a planned final painting. How do you see yourself in the future...do you like to make plans or just letting it be? In life we need both dreams and plans. If we want to achieve something we have to work according to a plan, and not just fly with the wind. It is like sailing on the ocean, you don’t just leave the sails and the wind to decide, but trim the sails and set a course. Anything else will only just provoke disaster. I hope I’ll be able to continue painting, and through my art be able to break down some of the walls that separate people. I come from a family with various origins: fishermen in North Scandinavia, farmers and shoe makers in Denmark, ballerinas in Berlin, pharmacists in Istanbul. As a child I met at home people from different parts of the world, from other continents, Africans, Asians, Latin Americans. That is why I distance myself from those who consider themselves superior due to their colour, nationality, religion, vocation or gender, since, from an early age, I discovered that all humans basically seek and feel the same things. My painted “Walls” for an example are for peace, unity, open discussions, mutual respect to mention a few things and not separation, suppression, fanaticism etc. MS

Ennio Montari Ennio Montariello was born in Naples on May 17, 1960. He graduated from the Art School of Naples. In 1982 and 1983 he graduated from the International Painting Workshops Anacapri (Na): “Issues of the arts: international meetings.” In 1983 he obtained a diploma course in painting (Maestro Domenico Spinosa) at the AABB of Naples. In 1988 he took part as an artist at the Summer Session on “Creativity” at the University of California Santa Cruz. In 1989 he obtained a diploma in drawing and painting OntoArte.

From 1996 to 1998 worked with the Center “Project Man” in Milan. He opened a school of art, theoretical and practical courses in which students participate in different regions of Italy. In 2001, he teaches courses on creativity at the “Summer Session” organized by the International Ontopsychology and the University of St. Petersburg. In June 2003, at the Tournament of the Quintana Foligno, Ennio realizes the postcard page for Ward Morley receiving notable acclaim from critics and audiences. In 2007 he became a member of the International Academy of Modern Art . His artistic training was affected by the lessons of the Renaissance and Caravaggio, but his research also goes through conceptual and surreal. In the early 90s he devoted himself to an art closer to the informal, but then focuses on a more figurative painting that condenses all of its artistic experiences, which tends to the exaltation of beauty as the perfection of the soul, so to a personal vision of the infinite.
