Italian artist Alessandro Siviglia immersed himself in art from an early age. He was initially drawn to street art, where he was able to express his artistic interests by graffiti writing on large public spaces using the alias CROW. After a 15 year stretch of taking a bold, guerrilla approach to art Siviglia began to hone his current style which combines his street art background with more traditional artistic conventions.
In his figurative works, Siviglia emphasizes the difference between a painting and reality, and the different ways of seeing, or perceiving, the world around us. He is drawn to observe the people, lifestyles, and stray animals, which he uses to reflect in his work the concept of relativity –accounting for both his observations from cities and his childhood memories of street art.
Siviglia’s paintings bring to mind the work of Picasso with a nod to the Cubism era. He has exhibited in Italy, the United States, and Hong Kong and has received several European prizes.
