For Mojo (Alfredo Raimondi) painting is like a difficult voyage that will never have a clear destination, but comes close to the essence of art. This road has led him to studying human beings in their bodily and earthly forms which also approach the sublime, or what this excellent painter – but first and foremost Italian tattooist – describes as “aesthetic fury”.
We interviewed Mojo recently on Tattoo Life magazine and he told us this: “Everything begins with observing the subject, and with your own point of view. When I observe the world all around me, I already have a frescoed vision of it, and so my Satyrs come to life in the senile lines of existence. A kind of metaphysical relationship is established with them.”
