Crossroads: Alice Pasquini Releases New Book
"Drawing is my means of being part of the world." – Alice Pasquini
Alice Pasquini travels continuously and her preferred canvases are city walls. The Roman artist, both a street artist and painter, has developed different threads in her research, from narrating feminine vitality to manipulating the three-dimensional possibilities of her work. She moves from urban explorations to installations using found materials.
Pasquini’s artwork can be seen not only on urban surfaces and walls, but also in galleries and museums across one hundred different cities around the world. Now her work can be seen in print for the first time. Preorder Crossroads: A Glimpse into the Life of Alice Pasquini from Drago Publisher today!
In over 300 pages, 200 images and a number of original extracts from her sketchbook, Crossroads tells the story and showcases the artwork of Alice Pasquini. Alice is a prolific illustrator, creative designer, and painter who has been gifting cities with artwork for over a decade. Through her work, women and children become an integral feature of any urban setting. From large artwork, like the wall of the Italian Museum in Melbourne, to small cameos in London and Marseille, Alice’s creativity shines through in every city thanks to her unique style. The images in Crossroads have been taken by photographers, from the likes of Martha Cooper and Ian Cox. The book is brought together by a foreword from the editor Paulo von Vacano, texts by Jessica Stewart and journalists Nicolas Ballario (Rolling Stones) and Stephen Heyman (New York Times), as well as article extracts by Steven P. Harrington and Jaime Rojo – Co-founders of Brooklyn Street Art [BSA], Serena Dandini, DJ Gruff and Chef Rubio.
"A feminine perspective, seen from a feminine eye. And art sits back and watches. For this reason, Alice continues to paint, to climb up the highest walls or to remain with her head bowed in the pages of her inseparable sketchbook, because, 'She knew she had but to open [her eyes] again, and all would change to the dull reality of adults' as was written in Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland." –Paulo von Vacano, Looking Through a Different Lens
"Bittersweet, gifted beyond belief, and with a work etiquette that has no off button; these are the characteristics that distinguish Alice and make her a cut above the rest." –Jessica Stewart
