We had the good fortune of connecting with CLAUDIO PARENTELA and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi CLAUDIO, how do you define success?
being able to simply live your dream day after day … being able to feel free day after day …. dreaming about art, eating art, smelling art, drinking art … getting inside yourself more and more every day to open new doors, new colorful worlds
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
…Oh nothing is easy in this world, nothing really, but everything can become easy if you can make your dream come true.The obstacles, many, there are, every day …. every day is a wonderful adventure. But I don’t like to plan anything …. I always follow my instincts and my feelings. I have decided to devote myself totally to my art 35 years ago, it wasn’t easy, but now I understand that I couldn’t have made a better choice
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I am very lazy …. and I love my house, my things, my study, my kitchen, my cats, my books, my garden …. but of course I invite my friends to my house , I host them in my home ….. so they can share my art, my food …. my life with me
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
