Fine Art Projects by Italian Contemporary Artist.
Paintings, Drawings and Digital Art combined to explore and create a unique interpretation of reality.
On these virtual pages I will keep a record of my projects.
Ideas may change and evolve into something totally different.
The mental process is a process of free association,
the aim is to understand my own significance following instinctive "dimensioning" of thoughts.
A. Alenia Laguardia
I was born in Italy on the 29th of February 1980.
I have received the basics of my Artistic Education in Italy, strongly influenced by Classical Art.
At the age of 20, I decided to pursue my Artistic Career in the United Kingdom.
At the age of 24 (2004) I became a Fine Art student, achieving my degree from the University of Sunderland two years later.
Also, undertook a course in business and academic language.
By the end of the first year at the University (2005), Alenia's MusicArt was taking shape.
I do not have a favorite visual artist I particularly inspire to.
I am fascinated by esoteric and magic traditions, I like mythology, psychology, science.
