Throughout his time sailing the briny ocean blue he experimented extensively with sound, using modified reel-to-reel and self-built devices; after 12 years he went to Lancaster University to study Music, Technology and Theatre. While there he began to pursue his interest in cross art-form collaborations and soundtracks.
Riccardo Attanasio (Artist. Perfomance Artist)
Riccardo Attanasio MAtlakasis Born on this planet, departing to higher dimensions through art.
Creativity transcends the ego, when we are in the void of pure creativity we forget about ourselves and we are a pure channel for art to travel in our body and the audience. My interdisciplinary approach to art does not cage itself in a media or fashion, contemporaneity, concept, etc. My work simply follows the flow of my life at the unison with my spiritual growth. My art exists in this particular period of time but it is not depended by it because it happens where time does not exist (the void). Matlakas showed his work internationally touching the fields of visual art, dance and performance.
