COURAGE ART PIECE – Silvia Giovanardi explored the myth of PROTEUS and the legends of the islamic JINN

SILVIA GIOVANARDI’S VOCATION SUSTAINABILITY IS AT THE CENTER OF SILVIA GIOVANARDI’S WORK AS A FASHION DESIGNER, PAINTER, AND PHOTOGRAPHER. HER PHILOSOPHY PROMOTES THE RETURN TO THE ORIGINAL MEANING OF FASHION AS A LIFESTYLE. A MODUS VIVENDI THAT RE-DISCOVERS, THROUGH ART, THE BEAUTY OF NATURE. LOVE IS THE MANTRA.

‘I WANT TO BE NATURE’S INSTRUMENT:
BY GETTING BACK IN TOUCH WITH IT AND EMBRACING A MORE NATURAL RHYTHM, WE WILL TAKE CARE OF OURSELVES WHILE RESPECTING THE ENVIRONMENT, LOCAL CRAFTS AND EVERYONE IN THE SUPPLY CHAIN.’

‘Courage’ – Handpainted Armor was commissioned by @cittadellarte for the @circulart_cittadellarte project. Silvia Giovanardi explored the myth of PROTEUS (the shape shifter in the ancient Greece), and the legends of the islamic JINN (the fiery genius in the old persian culture).

‘I created a courageous piece imbued with the ancient Proteus’ and Jinn’s traditions about their magical/miraculous possibility to TRANSFORM, to inspire participants in having the COURAGE to explore the great transformation power of the HEART..And to let the intuitive INSTINCT raise in our souls, asking our mind to be in the humble service of the heart, by loving the expansion of TIME, we only can perceive through its deep signature: the evolutionary change.’
