Alessandro Pensato


My name is Alessandro Pensato, aka Pencjo.
Self-taught artist, I am an observer and above all a dreamer, I look around and pigeonhole images in my mind. Ideas dazzle me at any moment. I throw the scene that occurred in my mind on a sheet of paper and then I begin the construction of my work. I collect information and images in order to give shape and context to the work I am planning and from that moment an evolution of tests and sketches begins until the decision which will be the final one. I am disturbed by the differences, the indifference and the exploitation of the weakest identities. Music is definitely my faithful companion and sometimes it adds ideas to my works.
My art is oil painting and mixed techniques in pencil, pastel, acrylic and other materials, including recycled materials.
