This is Waterfall’s interview with Claudio Parentela in June 2012.

Where are you based?
Italy.

Could you describe your work for us?
Anarchic, dreaming, extreme, simple and twisted, full of knots, shadows, of dark and pink moons and of green and grey suns…

Do you have a creative process you can share with us?
In these last years I love to create with all I’ve under my hands… I like to experiment with all I’ve under my eyes and with whom I feel in love at the moment…. to cut photos,papers,to colour all,mixing all in always new ways…. following my moods and my tastes in the exact moment… I don’t know where my way will take me… it’s an incredible adventure every day ….

Yours naturally…!

What’s been the best way to get your work seen?
Oh…. running on the web with Gooogle…. there is a lot to see…

Good… I work a lot…. and I love my work… I live always in the present…. I don’t know what is the future… I love to live every day richly… to continue to draw every day…
