“The World of Enrico Garff” introduction to the pictorial universe of 21st century master of painting
A supremely insightful and deeply scrutinizing into the deepest spiritual levels of Artist’s artistic realm interview released by the ‘So Cultures’ online cultural magazine.
My first play-ground mate was a tree. I grew up in a rather lonely childhood surrounded by nature in my mother’s private garden secluded from the mayhem of the world. My deep connection with nature, combined with the loneliness stimulated my fantasy to build up an imaginary world. The vacuum of a human relationship filled by my growing creativity triggered to fullfill the emptiness with colours, stories, imaginary beings and fantasy shapes. An arid soil was my foundation for a fertile imagination where I developed my artistic perception like a “third eye” shedding light into the darkness. I started early just after overcoming the age of a toddler drawing horses, pirates, Zorro and other marvels. I grew up mainly surrounded by female figures: by the record my mother, my cousins, 9 aunts. My father who was unanimously recognised mastering an outstanding singing voice vanished quite suddenly out of my life. His artistic sensibility is something I although inherited. I can still recall waking up in the morning at the echo of his soothing and harmonious voice sounding in my mind like a warm embrace while singing a beautiful Napolitean tune named la “La Montagna” (the Mountain). However excelling in a different artistic field, I can feel how he transmitted his musical pathos into the touch of my brush through his DNA, influencing my way of painting with the ancient Italic classical heritage still running in my veins. At that time when I still hadn’t developed much awareness of my skills and knowledge of what I was doing, the first recognition of my dawning talent came from a Lady deemed to be an art connoisseur by the pictorial circles of the time. I remember how she claimed to notice already plenty of action and dynamos embedded in my early stage drawing and painting attempts. In my nineteens, I learnt to appreciate the French impressionists and then the renaissance masters, especially Masaccio.From “The World of Enrico Garff” So Cultures Cultural Magazine Interview
