Alessandro Padovan (born in 1983) is a self-taught artist who graduated with a Mechanical Technician degree. He began his art career in 2012 as part of a duo by the name of Drill Monkeys Art Duo and then continued solo starting in January 2017. He uses an alternative technique: self-tapping screws and acrylic paint on a panel.
The intention of his work is to break the customary boundary that separates painting from sculpture. The screws, inserted to varying degrees, give three-dimensionality to his works and have become the main medium through which his subjects take form.
This Screw Art technique is not well known, but in the last 7 years Alessandro has displayed his works in galleries, auction houses, and art fairs in Italy and abroad, and at important benefit gala events.
His works can be found in art galleries in Las Vegas, Miami, Dubai, England, Germany, Switzerland and Italy.
The originality of this work lies in the technique and the three-dimensional effect obtained by screwing in common screws to varying depths and then painting over them to transform them into a contemporary sculpture/painting work of art.
