Alessandro Padovan & FBA
Alessandro Padovan (born in 1983), self-taught and graduate Mechanical Expert, began his art by forming an artistic duo called Drill Monkeys Art Duo in 2012 and then continued independently from January 2017. It is an adventure that saw him operate with an alternative technique: self-tapping screws and acrylic paint on panel.
A path that fits into the need to give three dimensionality to the works and to ironically cross over between sculpture and painting.
The screws in fact are placed at different depths and form different planes through which the figures take
The Screw Art technique is a not very well known technique, in the last 7 years Alessandro has managed to be present in Galleries, Auction Houses, Art Fairs in Italy and abroad and at important Charity Gala Events.
In 2016 he developped his first art toys inventing the Peacekeepers and in 2021 he started his new adventure with two friends, founding a new group called FBA realizing additional Art Toys linked to the World of Animal Bricks.
