FUTURED PAST

FUTURED PAST is a collection of oneiric illustrations that appear to be rich of symbolism, secrets and visions.

What at first sight might be misunderstood as an antique and eerie lithography is instead the result of Andrea’s digital sculpting and 3D rendering.

 The artist reveals:

“With this series, I often experience I am melting with the piece of art I’m working on. Something coming from my subconscious takes the reins on me and the piece itself. Submerged by a succession of sensations, I almost stop seeing myself as the creator. 

The difference between my typical creature work and this genre is dictated by the fact that the latter has definitely not been required nor influenced by industry demand. 

Being transported by pure artistic freedom has been my ticket to travel through the most unexplored corners of my subconscious.”

Andrea was born and raised in Italy, where he has been surrounded by art since his early age. Composition, lighting and storytelling have been influenced by old masters. In fact, his family ran an antique’s business and he grew up among beautiful old prints, sculptures and art pieces.

Back in 2019, when I began to experiment on this series, I felt something really unique. For the first time I was giving vent to my artistic sensitivity. Throughout the process, my subconscious has been playing with cords never touched before, composing new mysterious visual melodies, taking me to the limbo between things I would like to understand and things I would prefer not to know.”

By choice of the artist, the pieces don’t come with a detailed description: “I want each viewer’s personal Interpretation to become the ticket to their own journey.”


QUOTES:

“This series of images is one of the most evocative bodies of work I have seen in a long time. It’s graphic and iconic, all wrapped in a visceral eerie feeling that will keep you dragged inside the piece and will make you stare at it longer and longer each time. This series elevates the 3D genre as a whole to new heights previously not seen in the space.” – Gavriil Klimov, Creative Director at NVIDIA

“There is powerful emotional resonance in Andrea’s art, elevated by sleek, intelligent design that hits you on an instinctive level. It captures one’s imagination the same way great mysteries do. Beautiful & eerie. Alien & visceral.” – Seb McKinnon, Illustrator/Filmaker/Musician

“A unique and personal work that takes 3D to a new dimension. Images with mystery and stories to tell. Definitely one of my favorites” – Nekro, Digital Alchemist

“Andrea is one of my favorite artist, we can recognize his work instantly, always trying and experimenting new things and fresh ideas, keep developing his own worlds unique voice, a great example to follow for every artist”. – Paul Chadeisson, Digital Artist and Art Director

“Andrea’s lithograph series is unlike anything from any other 3D artist I’ve ever seen.
Many have tried to mimic the surreal feel that he creates but fail. They are all 1 of a kind from a 1 of a kind artist.” – Richard Anderson, Flaptraps Art

“When I first saw Andrea’s work I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. A beautiful and eerie marriage of craft and creativity, no one does it quite like him.” – Sean Sevestre, Artist

“Andrea is both a technical mind and a dreamer. Since I met him many years ago his artistic efforts always impressed me as of being on the very overlap between technological frontier and traditional artistic sensibility. An artist dealing with our Zeitgeist.” – Lip Comarella, Art Director / Netflix Animation
