Diario di un lockdown by Stefano Chiassai
An explosion of talking drawings and creative energy, as a metaphor for freedom.
Diaro di un lockdown by Stefano Chiassai – Diary of a lockdown by Stefano Chiassai
This aesthetic journey by Stefano Chiassai unfolded between March 2020 and August 2021: a year and a half full of events and emotions that the Tuscan fashion designer has graphically depicted through images that crystallise these many events. He has done so in his own way, giving free reign to his imagination to create a microcosm made up of characters, phrases and meticulous decorations.
A contemporary and private cahier, created at a time when we all felt isolated and alone, at the mercy of uncontrollable news and events.
It is precisely in this situation that art comes into its own – with all due respect to the classical canons – it is about knowing how to make it a sort of refuge from the uncertainties and uncontrollability.
Stefano Chiassai’s graphic creations have been transposed into paper format (it is difficult to define it as a book of art or a coffee table book, or to find a precise definition); it is more comparable to a journey to be re-experienced on an emotional level, without necessarily having to find a beginning and an end.
A journey experienced by everyone.
