"Life & Death"
Born in 1998 in a little town in Italy, Giovanni Grassi showed since he was young a passion for drawing and colors. At 15 year old he started to attend the lessons of his first master. He received the art high school diploma. Later he attended the atelier of Giorgio Dante and now he’s Roberto Ferri’s student. Giovanni is inspired by great masters of the past and by the nature and landscape that surrounds him. He uses the academic, classical and symbolist art to paint surreal subjects and landscape expressing his emotions, ideals and currently themes.

Photography is a driving force in my life. What I love most about it, is our ability to transform our dreams and nightmares into surreal moments that reach, touch and affect the world around us. A lasting idea like a tangible piece of poetry. And…. I am a sucker for poetry. I have been shooting, touching, obsessing about photography since i was 9 years old. I love emotional art, I love expression, i love individuality. I love strength, courage and evolution. These things are important to me. I am bare bones without this extension of my soul, this ability to create and give myself to the world around me. Some of us communicate with song, with love, with words, I have chosen to share imagery. It is a terrific tragedy to love something so much, so maddening and undefinable. It is as if bleeding becomes a religion. Chords we hear and share like children to the world. This is what I have to offer the world, in blood types and fire storms. Believe in what you love, give it all of you and watch it bloom.
