a)CARLITO DALCEGGIO-SECRET SILK SOCIETY- 41 , CURRENTLY IN MONTREAL AT MERCAN DEDE STUDIO


q) Can you describe your path to being an artist? When did you really get into it?


a)I WAS BORN TO BE AN ARTIST; IT IS TRACED FOR ME AND I HAVE A MISSION-THERE IS NO EXILE NO ESCAPE-
I LEARNED ART BY MAKING IT, NON STOP IN A FURIOUS PASSION , TRAVELING ALL OVER THE WORLD LEARNING WITH THE TRIBES, WITH TRADITIONAL MASTERS, WITH PSYCHEDELICS, INSTALLING POP-UP STUDIOS IN MANY DIFFERENT LOCATIONS SUCH AS THE DESERT IN INDIA, PARIS, NEW YORK, MEXICO, BRAZIL... i am a gypsy, like the wind, running for something that does not exist, BUT I KNOW I WILL FIND IT


q) Describe your ideals and how they manifest in your work.


a)I AM A FREEDOM WARRIOR, A SEEKER, AND A PEARL DIVER, MY PAINTINGS ARE RADICAL FREE FREEDOM FLAGS , TALISMAN TO PROVOKE AND CHARM AND TO TRANSFORM



q) Is music a part of your studio time? What do you listen to?

a)MUSIC IS VITAL TO MY CREATION, ALWAYS LOUD MUSIC PLAYING IN MY STUDIO, IT IS CREATING THE SILENCE IN THE MODERN WORLD,,, I LISTEN FROM SUFI TRANCE TO QUAWALLI TO MALI DESERT MUSIC TO NEW TWISTED ELECTRONICA TO TRANCE TO CHANTS TO PROTEST SONGS, EVERYTHING THAT GIVES ME THE KICKS,----- THESE DAYS, I AM INTO SHACKLETON AND FOREVER SHPONGLE,,,, BOLERO DE RAVEL,,,
WE NEED TO CREATE A SPACE FOR RITUAL, A FREE PLACE TO EXPLODE IN ORDER TO ACHIEVE THE GREAT ALCHEMICAL WORK,,,,


q) How would you describe your work to someone?

a)I DO NEVER DESCRIBE MY WORK--- I SHARE THE VISIONS, THE PAINTINGS, THE MURALS, THE WRITINGS, THE FILMS, INSTALLATIONS PERFORMANCES, YOU HAVE TO SEE IT ALL TO HAVE A GLOBAL IDEA OF MY VISIONS, PAINTINGS ONLY EXPRESS ONE PART OF MY MESSAGE


q) Influences?

a)AN ARTIST ONLY RE-TRANSMIT WHAT THE ANCESTORS HAVE LEFT BEHIND AND CHANGE IT , UPLIFT IT,
----HUICHOL ART-HERMAN HESSE- AYAHUASCA VISIONS, THE OCEAN, CHILDREN DRAWINGS, COBRA MOVEMENT, CAROUSSELS, PICASSO, BASQUIAT,TWOMBLY, SACRED TIBETAN ART, ALL SYMBOLS IN THE STREETS, TRIBAL ART, EROTICISM, RED WINE, ALLEN GINSBERG, ALL REVOLUTIONS, EVERY MOMENT IN LIFE,,, PEYOTE, -----NATURE AND TREES---


q) Describe your process for creating new work.

a)IT S A TOTAL TRANCE WHERE I LOOSE MY HUMAN SHAPE, I LOOSE CONSCIOUSNESS, AND I ACCESS A HIGHER LEVEL WHERE I AM ONE WITH THE UNIVERSE, A REAL KICK, AN ECSTASY, A BLEND OF EUPHORIA AND SILENCE, AN EXPLOSIVE MANTRA,


q) What advice do you have for artists looking to show their work?

a)NEVER WAIT FOR NOBODY, NEVER WAIT FOR A GALLERY, CREATE YOUR OWN UNIVERSE ANYWHERE YOU CAN FIND--RISK EVERYTHING YOU ARE, BLOW IT-
AND CREATE A SPACE THAT RELATES TO YOUR VISION-BE TRUTHFUL TO YOUR MESSAGE AND SACRIFICE YOURSELF TO ACHIEVE AND TRANSMIT IT
GET A KICK, A REAL THRILL, PLEASURE IS THE KEY


q) What are you really excited about right now?

AND OTHE THINGS, I AM EXCITED ABOUT THE UNKNOWN

q) What do you love most about where you live?

a)I DO NOT REALLY LIVE SOMEWHERE, I FLY WITH THE PROJECTS AND THEY GUIDE MY GYPSY ROAD,
EVERY PLACE HAVES A SPECIAL ESSENCE, AND I LOVE TO GO PAINT IN SEVERAL PLACES TO DRINK THE PERFUME OF THE FIELD OF JOY AND TRANSMIT IT


q) Best way to spend a day off?

a)THERE IS NO DAY OFF FOR AN ARTIST, THERE IS NO TIME TO WASTE, I PAINT EVERYDAY****
BUT A DAY WITHOUT A BRUSH MUST BE SPENT MAKING LOVE WITH A MUSE AND TRACING OUT
