From the sketchbook to the walls, Umberto Stagni From the sketchbook to the walls, Umberto Stagni A whimsical personality, who loves to amaze and fascinate his observers, brings his sketches on the walls together with Inkiostro Bianco.
The world of illustration is his home, you could say, and looking at his works you can immediately notice a very strong and unmistakable style. The choice of what to represent is only up to us and reflects what strikes us most about the world around us, everyone can choose his or her preferred way of expression. They are that little piece of me that finally came out the way I wanted. You initially think of a subject, then you look for it between your culture and new sources and suddenly you see it.
Then you make it real. Two strong masks that upset the observer while maintaining a fascinating harmony in terms of colors and composition of forms. In this context the notebook and the pencil are the indispensable travel companions that follow you wherever you go and that welcome every thought, line, sketched sign, to give them the chance to be later reworked and become something more complete. Notebooks are also beautiful to keep.
My closet is full of old notebooks. Sometimes I look at them, and I really enjoy reliving the passage of time. Abandoned ideas emerge from the past, which suddenly become bright and ready to be developed again. Over the years, despite the novelties of the digital age that have certainly influenced my production methods, this characteristic of mine has never changed. I love to always maintain a correspondence with the physicality of the sign in my drawings.
When the times allow it, I work a lot on the strokes on paper: they have much more soul". Precisely because of this desire to tell stories, Umberto looks at wallpapers as a decorative means to make the rooms become "perfect narrative places" that can express the personality of the homeowner or give a unique and unmistakable style to any public place.
Each wall becomes a new story to tell, like a new page in the sketchbook. Related Articles.
