The Beginnings of Antoni Tudisco
He impersonates different origins and cultures: he was born and raised in Hamburg, Germany, by a Filipino mother and an Italian father.
Since he was a child he has always been curious about technology and digital: when he was just 13 years old he opened his first MySpace profile – the forerunner of Facebook – focusing on all those details related to the design of his page and learning programming languages such as HTML, CSS and many others.
The graphic experimentation captures him so much that at 17 he decides to enrol at SAE University where he begins to attend a course in Web Design & Development; Although the programming language of the PC wasn’t something he liked, he finishes the training, and then dedicates himself to the study of the language of creativity but more related to design.
From that moment, having created his own site and understood his own way, a still very young Tudisco, began to be noticed by some creative agencies that entrusted him with projects for their customers.
Tudisco takes the opportunity to demonstrate its eclectic talent, developing his research and launching in September 2012 the project “KILL ART///TRUST DESIGN” which is displayed on the Bēhance platform by over 50,000 people.
The project is described in this statement: “Few artists call themselves designers because they seem to better understand the difference. Artists do not create their work to sell a product or promote a service. They create it solely as a means of self-expression, so that it can be seen and appreciated by others. The message, if we can even call it, is not a fact but a feeling.” Art is Patron-ed, Design is Purchased. Art existed before capitalism, before design was “bought”, things were simply improvements or innovations made by intelligent people or practical users. Art is an invention made by an individual, for individual interpretation “.
Antoni Tudisco's Aesthetic
Today Antoni Tudisco’s style is a real trademark, a signature recognizable all over the world: his works are full of colours, symbols and references to pop culture. His characters are stylish, exuberant and cheeky.
The creative director has never revealed the process or techniques used to give life to projects that leave even the big brands breathless. There is a long list of brands that have chosen to work with Tudisco to create new projects of great impact: among them Nike, Adidas, Versace, Google, Mercedes Benz, D&G but also great characters of the star system and music such as Wiz Khalifa and the DJ Steve Aoki.
In collaboration with the latter, in 2021 he achieved a worldwide success in the crypto world thanks to the sale on the Nifty Gateway marketplace of the NFT collection that was sold for over 4 million dollars and where the NFT “Hairy” went viral on all major social platforms reaching the sales figure for over 800 thousand dollars.
