Ruggero Ruggieri

Ruggero Ruggieri

Hi, my name is Ruggero Ruggieri. I was born and live on the Italian coast, quite close to the French border.

What makes an artwork attractive? Could be the perfect execution, the chiaroscuro or the study of perspective and colors? Also!
What I try to convey is "to give an emotion". The thrill of being in front of a unique work, "lived" during its execution, which has its own "individual story". Any of my works has his own story I could tell its detailed. On my opinion, painting is not ... reproducing things as they are, I would have rather chosen photography instead! Painting is sharing my emotions!!! Knowing anybody will see something different in my art, means I've been able to give some of my personal emotions.

- My story as an artist
I belong to a family of artists. Aged 5 years old I spent many afternoons of my summer holiday, together with my uncle Salvatore Murra, while he was painting. I remember I was astonished of the beauty coming out of any gesture of his brushes.
Aged 12 years old I won my first art contest for all pupils of my school. My family were not surprised about my success as they were aware art ran in my veins.

- My inspiration
I admire the fathers of impressionism: Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Degas ... the cubists: Picasso, Braque etc. All of them had the courage to defend their own ideas.
