The Artist Elvino Motti
Elvino Motti was born in Dosso del Liro (Como) in 1952 and now lives and works in Gravedona , he believes that sculpture is an art you have inside, that is inside yourself and it is difficult to become sculptors from nothing. Elvino Motti was young when he started, he attended the Istituto d’Arte and then the Accademia di Brera.
The material Elvino prefers is stone, above all because he can have a direct relationship with the work during all phases. Elvino believes the study of minerals, the study of nature, the deep knowledge and the competence in using techniques he has lead him to evaluate from the beginning the result he can achieve.
A very important consideration for the artist is that a work involves of all the senses, including touch, which emphasizes the emotional impression of a piece itself, during the exhibition this aspect can be experimented.
