Annachiara Felletti was born in Ravenna on 17 March 1987: since she was a child, she
has been revealed a pronounced aptitude for art and later it has become the subject for
her educational path.
She graduated from fine arts high school Pier Luigi Nervi in Ravenna; then, she
specialised in Game Design and Concept Art at Internation School of Comix, enhancing
The passion for analogic art never faded away, though: after several expositions, she
approached world of tattoo and decided to reinvent herself: attending a course at the
Fashion Look Academy of Rome to obtain the tattooer license.
Always striving to translate the sound into a pictorial representation, she creates worlds around the masterminds behind the music with the purpose of capturing their essence. Working always from within the darkness, her art is inspired by the shadow/light work of Caravaggio, the nightmares of Goya, the surrealism of Dali and the never ending exploration of death.
Nato a Roma nel 1979, Fabio Zanchi è un artista contemporaneo sempre in evoluzione.
Poliedrico e autodidatta inizia precocemente ad interessarsi d’arte e disegno.La sua inesauribile fame di creare attraverso le sue mani l’ha portato nel corso del tempo a diventare un artista completo:pittore, scultore e tatuatore.
I suoi lavori raccontano il suo mondo interiore,stimolando l’intelligenza emotiva di chi li guarda.
Le sue tele acriliche e polimateriche nella forma rappresentano ritratti che sfruttano stati d’animo e intime ossessioni degli esseri umani con quale riesce a cogliere aspetti multidimensionali della nostra realtà psicologica e sociale.
FOLKLORE – Francesco Viscuso
After first appearing at the Beu-Beu Art Festival in Tuscany, FOLKORE by Francesco Viscuso returns to Rome for the 19th edition of the International Tattoo Expo.
On 4-6 May, Palazzo dei Congressi in Rome will host the exhibition project by Francesco Viscuso and curated by Rossana Calbi, that, on this occasion, will be covered with a floral installation.
Alterations of the order of meaning in surreal archaism. Popular beliefs, fairy tales, myths and legends inherited in distorted narratives, yet still live in apparent secrecy. Human history has always been accompanied by the need to ritualize, to believe in enchantment, in magic, in prayer and in sacrifice. It has never been easy to be born, to survive and to accept death. Hence the need to affirm the power of imagination, the faculty of conceiving the elements as supernatural beings and seeking their favor, in a climate of constant tension between desire and fear. Even in the post-electronic era, there is an extra-traditional people, increasingly free from old borders but still supported by old hopes.
Thus Francesco Viscuso explains how his clippings become icons binding past and present; in them the human being explains his life requiring a ritualization. The ritual becomes the symbol it fed itself of and, though substituted in ages and cultures, and even in the most lucid and positivist mind, the symbol is yet the cornerstone for the solidity of thought. Folklore speaks about symbols and their representations, about their links and their past evolutions in which the artist, like a fortune teller, reads the future evolution.
Born in Catania and livng in Rome, Francesco Viscuso graduated in Art Criticism at La Sapienza University in Rome; his artistic research extends to photography, collage, installation, jewelery and ephemeral design. The themes of his work develop in a personal black box that evokes the conflictual relationship between human psyche and natural kingdom. SCATOLANERA PROJECT (Blackbox Project) is also the name of the exhibition project he presented in Milan and Rome; he crafted the projects Pandemonium and Carnival Motel where he confuses literature and real image, sublimating fear into imagination. He has exhibited his works in galleries throughout Italy: Catania, Milan, Rome, Reggio Emilia, Salerno and Salina (Messina).
For the International Tattoo Convention 2018, Francesco Viscuso, after the Beu-Beu Art Festival, presents ten works created with analogic collage on watercolor paper that explain new conjunctures and assumptions to which one can cling to in the chaos of the prevailing logic.

Ink of Ages
Music, inexhaustible source of inspiration and grandeur, is the main theme of the artworks realized by all the tattoo artists involved in this project. The world of tattooing and its art were indeed conditioned from their musical context, especially from some genres like heavy metal and rock.
It’s difficult to imagine modern tattooing without music, a bond that goes beyond temporary trends, with roots chained onto various subcultures, where music and tattoos not only create one aesthetic, but also a strong, recognizable identity perceivable both with sight and hearing.
Ink of Ages got realized for the first time ever at a shared exhibition inside of the Tattoo Expo, in May 2017
