Arte Ecologica E Potente Intervista Con Keri Gonzato

Devakrishna Marco Giollo, pittore, artista e «ricercatore» spirituale, porta sulle sue tele la nuova consapevolezza acquisita con la meditazione.

Devakrishna Marco Giollo è una persona intensa e così è la sua vita. Riavvolgendo la bobina e tornando indietro, si incontra una manciata di momenti cruciali che hanno definito la rotta della sua esistenza in modo radicale. La prima epifania è stata quando ha scoperto di amare l’arte.

«Allora ero attratto dagli studi di architettura ma, ben presto, mi resi conto che la mia sensibilità era catturata dal lato creativo del mestiere ma che tutti i numeri, le formule e i calcoli che ci stavano attorno non facevano per me», spiega Devakrishna M. Giollo. A quel punto si iscrive allo CSIA, dove si sente subito a casa: «Ho avuto la fortuna di avere insegnanti brillanti, tra cui Bruno Monguzzi e Nag Arnoldi, che ha lasciato un’impronta inde-lebile nel mio modo di fare arte».

Giollo Interview By Keri Gonzato For COOP

Devakrishna Marco Giollo, painter, artist and spiritual searcher, brings out on his canvases the new awareness he has gained through meditation.

Devakrishna Marco Giollo is an intense person and so is his life. By rewinding the film and going back into the past, we see a handful of crucial moments that have defined the course of his existence in a radical way. The first epiphany was when he discovered that he loves art.

“At the time I wanted to study architecture, but I soon realized that although my sensitivity was captured by the creative side of the profession, all the numbers, formulas and calculations that were involved in it were not for me,” says Devakrishna. At that point he enrolled to the CSIA [college in Lugano for arts and applied arts, Ed.], where he felt immediately at home: “I was lucky enough to have brilliant teachers, including Bruno Monguzzi and Nag Arnoldi, who left an indelible impression on my way of making art.”

Giollo Interview Ciba XYMRA By Diana Lagalante

By Diana Lagalante



- What is the trend color right now?

- I don’t like the idea of the trend colors, but I like warm colors that transfer emotions to a person when the individual is looking at my paintings …



- Who are your favorite artists?An interview with the artist Devakrishna Marco Giollo

- I like Monet, Rothko and also Klimt. Picasso as well, in a certain way, because he is the type of artist who breaks the rules and breaks out of the general scheme of things.



- Who are the artists you dislike?

- Edvard Munch, for instance. He does not care how the individual person reacts to his paintings. You can see all his depression and sadness pouring out of his paintings – which I think is egotistical.



- So, what you are saying is that you have to take into consideration how people will react to your work?

- Absolutely. This is the first rule! My work attitude is to start working...

Giollo Interview By Faiz Kermani For Center Point Basel Switzerland

-You originally studied architecture. When did you decide to become a full-time artist and why?

At a very young age I loved to draw but as soon I started the architect school I realized that all the technical data I had to study was not my calling so I immediately changed to the nearby art school of CSIA in Lugano.

-Which styles of art are your favourite? Can you tell us about your approach to art?

I have a lot respect for figurative art, portraits, bodies and things as it requires a lot of knowledge and technique but I prefer abstract paintings because it always brings me into an unknown space, not knowing where it leads and at the same time still take care of harmony in compositions of forms and colors.

-What is the best thing about being a full-time artist? What is the worst thing?

The best thing for me is being able to be creative, to do something beautiful and to be totally present in the moment while I am painting and have all the...

Ciba XYMARAT An Interview With The Artist Devakrishna Marco Giollo. By Le Vin Chin

- In our first interview with you, we already talked about your philosophy and your approach. This time, can you tell us more about your creative process?

First of all, I have a lot of "material" at home that I have been collecting. It's just objects and pieces, which you can see on the paintings. I can't exist only on a flat surface, I am used to sculpture, so for me, a painting is a three dimensional thing. I see objects that attract me and I just collect them. Then, when I have the object, I depart - it's like going out from a center and it's almost like going out from my own inner center. It's very important for me that I am in a clear space inside when I do that. That means my heart is open, I don't have anything that clutters my mind; that I am in a clean, good space. And then I start placing the objects, I start moving and creating shapes that have some harmony. And then from the center I spread out into space. It's like what I do in my private life as well. I am...
