Ettore Cavaliere

Ettore's collages are really lovely--strong, colorful, and experimental. I love how he intertwines images together but also adds in geometric elements (usually it's done one way or the other!)

Ettore Cavaliere
Salerno, Italy

Describe your work in 10 words or less.

My works are a collage of images arousing emotions for their colour or their subject.

What do you like to work with (magazines, photographs, vintage)? Be specific!

I like working with magazines and photos.

How long have you been creating collages and what made you start?

I started with collages about three years ago because I love this technique and I have reproduced it on the computer too.

Are you solely an artist, or do you work in another profession?

I'm not solely an artist, I'm an advertising and editorial graphic designer.

Do you have any formal art training?

No, I'm self-taught. I started painting and drawing.

Explain your favourite techniques.

My favourite techniques are the repetition of image and image cut.

Describe your favourite piece ever created.

I haven't any favourite piece because I think even the most beautiful one stops being that after a while.

What other artists do you admire?

I like pop art like Andy Warhol and Rauschenberg. I also like Mimmo Rotella's and Jacques Villeglé's decollages.

Thanks Ettore!
