Animus [itw]



Animus played the game of the StreetLove interview. This stencil artist is from Italy.

He chose Animus as his artist name because it has got a psychological root, the term “Animus” was created by C.G.Jung.

He has been involved in this kind of art for the last year and a half, starting somehow by fortuity and somehow by curiosity after having seen a single layer stencil on a wall.

At the moment he’s doing his art by himself, but “I’d like to join the fruits of this passion with someone else

Doing street art is only a hobby for him, he’s an University student.

To promote his artwork, he chiefly uses FlickR and the social networks.

StreetLove THE ART

I mainly work on wood (mdf), plexiglass or metal. The inspiration to create a stencil arises in me from the sensations that the image I’m looking at, gives to me: sensations related both to the esthetical beauty and to the capacity that image has to make me feel positive emotions

He already created about 40 pieces that you can find mostly in Italy, but as well as in Paris and Sao Paulo: this last two cities reached thanks to Urbanhearts’ project called “Street Art Without Borders“.

Furthermore in a short time some copies of his stencils will be pasted in Manchester (England).

My works are not connected one with another. At the moment I’m working on an eight layer stencil

His preferred street art theme is represented by people (or part of people), animals and even surreal creatures, but always something “alive” or something in which he can feel life, something able to make him feel that “warmth” that only life can provide.

In terms of tools, he uses gloves, mask, sheet’s layers and spray cans.

I like to keep a record of each work I realize, therefore I take a picture of every piece

StreetLove THE FUN

There’s no colour I prefer to any other, though lately I do like very much the red colours

His favorite films are thrillers, especially the ones of psychological contents: “for example in the last years I appreciate very much movies with DiCaprio with Scorsese as director

3 things Animus loves in general: the mutual understanding, a warm coffee and his girlfriend.

3 things he hates: the society he’s living in, the abuse of power over every living thing and Mr. Berlusconi.
