Watchers



I am always very interested in the ways artists reinterpret my own works, but I also would like to see what they could create just based on my image: a sort of portrait based on my pictures, but not a mere copy of the photo; I am mostly curious about how they could imagine me in a totally different context.

So I decided to start a contest :)
Rules are simple:
- Make a drawing or a painting portraying me, but without just copying one of my pictures;
- Works will be judged based on originality and technique;
- Send the work to shivabel@hotmail.it within the 15th of january, 2015.

Prizes will be:

- 1st place: 3 numbered collectable DVDs of my "Anima Persa" trilogy: "Malacreanza", "Il Mondo Perduto" and "Inferno Veneziano", three artfilms by Cosmotropia De Xam, signed by me + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiria Vision (another project I work with, masters of Witch House);

- 2nd place: 1 numbered collectable DVD chosen from the ones above, still signed + "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiria Vision;

- 3rd place: original movie posters of all three films, signed
+ "Antropophagus" CD by Mater Suspiria Vision

Of course the shipping costs will be payed by me :D

Come and join everyone!!! ^_____^

From my rotting body, flowers shall grow and I am in them and that is eternity
Artist | Student | Photography
Switzerland
I am interested in Fine Arts. True Art; deep and meaningful themes and subjects, things that use to be forgotten and -even more!- rejected, deprecated, censored by both the so-called manistream and the masses.

I particularily have a huge thing about dolls. So Bellmer and his descendants are an important reference. Tari Nakagawa, Amano Katan, Ryo Yoshida, Mari Shimizu & such friends.

I also love the struggle between unreal, surreal and hyperreal.

And I'm deeply interested in the sacred, hence religious and esoteric symbology and objects. I run a personal musical project about this, too.

I also love old medical equipments, taxidermy, freaks of nature... References to such things are always welcome in my imagery.



Favourite genre of music: Apocalyptic, Neofolk, Dark ambient, Experimental, Power Electronics

Favourite photographer: Irina Ionesco, Daikichi Amano, Ken Ichi Murata, John Santerineross, David Nebreda, Slawomir Rumiak, Joel Peter Witkin, Gottfried Helnwein, Pierre Molinier, Ellen Rogers, Paulina Otylie Surys, Andreas Serrano, Sarah Sitkin, Sally Mann....
