My name is John Bellan (born Gianluca Bellan), I was born and raised in Italy in the Trentino Alto Adige region, a region of the famous Dolomites mountains. (World Heritage Site)
I grew up during the 70s and the music of that period accompanies me in the composition of my works, like the wonderful nature that surrounds me and the world of animals that I happen to meet and observe like bears, wolves and deer or foxes.
I define myself 'a border artist', I enter and leave abstract forms to return to almost figurative forms.
In painting as in music to excite I can use to play a song, an electric guitar with extreme sounds, or I can decide to use a cello and who knows, maybe touch other strings of emotions. My pictorial gesture is often comparable to a trip, I start with an idea, a theme, a memory, a photo, a song, a poem and then continuing in the work I decide which way to take, whether to turn right or left or go straight.
