Cracking Art loves William Sweetlove

Cracking Art collective, °1993, Italy - William Sweetlove, °1949, Oostende, Belgium 

In 1993 six North Italian artists, Omar Ronda, Alex Angi, Kicco, Renzo Nucara, Carlo Rizetti and Marco Veronese set up the collective Cracking Art. The basic material for their works is plastic made of pure oil, which in turn is a derivative of crude oil obtained after a thermochemical treatment known as ‘cracking’. For Beaufort01 the collective cooperated with William Sweetlove. Typical characteristics of Sweetlove are the use of bright colours and seductive forms and his sense of humour. Their cooperation resulted in a golden globe covered with branches, shells, starfishes, sea horses and red goats.
