"Alessandro Sicioldr is conscientiously observant and nurturing of the inner world which emerges from his subconscious mind. Since he was a young boy, Alessandro has paid close attention to the images and visions which would appear to him, and he has continuously documented them through his art. Aided in his creative self discovery by his psychologist and artist father, Sicioldr developed the skill of interpreting his private reality and has therefore been able to build on the universality of his profound symbolism and narratives. Tapping into the archetypal imagery familiar to all of us through our own internal spheres, Alessandro uses his intelligence and perception to strengthen our grasp of what it is that makes us human.
Sicioldr was born in 1990 in Tarquinia, Italy and currently lives and works in Perugia. Training came from his father in his classical painting atelier, where Alessandro learned not only how paint, but also picked up many traditional techniques, including how to prepare wood using Cennino Cennini’s method.

Everything would seem quite normal from the outside, this is because inner evolutions and experiences are subtle, not manifest. What happens under the surface of normality is what really makes the difference. Dreams, visions, fantasies and obsessions have been with me since my early childhood, and I sublimate them through art.
...I have some recurring archetypal themes that sprout spontaneously from my mind in my visions. The great mother, the devouring mother, the trinity, the abyss, the third eye. All of these symbols represent my current state of inner evolution. I give shape to inner characters that have something to say to me. An archetypal symbol is not an allegory but a door toward a world... ' http://wowxwow.com/artist-interview/alessandro-sicioldr-ai
