This is the place for stuck artists.
For practicing artists who are tired of feeling stuck and alone, Vittorio Bustaffa is offering mentorship classes to overcome creative blocks. Students will get a personalized method toolkit for moving forward even when you are afraid of facing the unknown. Unlike a painting and drawing class in school, you will not be told what how to create or what to represent. Like walking in the woods, having one friend makes all the difference.
"The technique of painting, if learned as an end in itself, does not lead to any original and satisfactory result, both on a personal and professional level. For the painter, thought is inside the material, the technique serves to find that thought." Vittorio Bustaffa
Hi, I am Vittorio.
I am a professional painter and a visual art educator, I studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Venice and I have participated in collective and personal exhibitions of painting and illustration in galleries and institutions in Italy and abroad. I also teach advanced painting techniques and I coordinate the courses of the Illustration department at the International Comics School of Padua and Brescia.
I understand what it means to feel stuck in the creative practice. I myself discovered that to be able to work with freedom, efficiency and joy I had to redefine my habitual patterns of drawing and painting, and explore relationships with a deeper sense of purpose and meaning.
Over the course of my career I have deepened the study of the relationship between aesthetics, neuroscience and creative processes related to drawing and painting. I now mentor artists of all levels and help them to overcome their fears and get unstuck.
"Painting and drawing are material activities that cannot be learned without considering that we are a single entity of body, mind and spirit." - Vittorio Bustaffa
