Alessio Mazzarulli started with arts in 1998, modeling clay until 2000. He is currently living in a full immersion art situation and says:
"Every life's moment is a great inspirations for painting it. For me, painting is to "block the time" in that exactly moment; it's often a faded memory so my artworks are consumed, eroded by time. Sometimes I paint walls also eroded by time, with mosses and mushrooms grown on the walls."
The passing of time is the main topic of his works. Coming from the experience of modeling clay, the third dimension and the sense of touch are characterized in his artworks by their relief, thinking to sculpture.
