Ruggero Tommasini Artist Bio:

I am an Italian artist born in Vicenza living in England. I moved to London in 2006 where due to space constrains, I relished my creativity on my laptop exploring different media such as Graphic Design and Web Design and worked for two web design companies and then freelanced as illustrator.  A few years later I met Emily and then decided to leave the City for a better life. We are now living in a much bigger house in the countryside, very close to the sea in the south coast near Brighton, we have two kids who keep us pretty busy most of/all the time. Bless them!! Having more space and being more settled with the space to work has helped me to start painting again and feeling once again myself. I realised I don't want to work in the web design industry but I want to concentrate on painting because I feel Its is essential for my well being. People use music, writing or dance. I use paint as a medium to express what I treasure. It keeps me happy and alive. Every time I paint I pull things from different places of  my mind, channelling them into a painting with the connections made between the eyes, mind and hands. One rule I made, is that I need to have fun while I paint, learn new techniques, grow and be inspired by other artists work. Right now I am inspired by painters such as Terry Frost, Roger Hilton and Peter Lanyton. Painting has to be a therapeutic experience too.  I normally cycle to work and I take photos of shapes or colours that inspire me using them as references for my work. This part of England inspires me and influences my painting with the colours of the landscape. I mainly use oils because I love the translucence, sheen and thickness of the quality of the paint and it's ability to be adjusted if I need a change it until it has dried.  I work in different ways, sometime I apply colours straight from the tube, other times creating thin layers with brushes or knife palettes.  I like playing with shapes and colors. Each painting means something to me. They are a"real" piece of unique art, created from the heart. GSET (link to page)is my favourite so far because I managed to control the colours, entirely inside shapes and lines.   My work is on display in restaurants, homes, selfridges, urban outfitters, london, art markets and interiors's shops in London.
