Dancing close to the sky

“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”  W.B. Yeats, The Land of Heart’s Desire

The more I have the chance to work with dancers, the more I fall in love with this art!

See here some of the photos taken to the talented and beautiful Stephanie Collins in a very special location: Trinity Laban Conservatoire!

School of Calligraphy

He prefers to be called GEP, but his full name is Giuseppe Caserta. I really enjoyed meeting him and joining his class for two hours weeks ago. I learned many things about his art and I was captured by the speed of his hands witch moved on the paper armed of ink and pens. He likes to define himself a “writer”, his art is a melting-pot of calligraphy, spray-art, painting. He writes using gothic, humanistic types as an old copyst with attention to details and with a eye both to the history and tradition and to the modern art. Just think he uses tools made by hand in the same way like centuries ago. And now, look how he teaches to his students! In that classroom I felt like I was in a studio of a Renaissance artist.
