The Heart Guitar
This work is the result of a collaboration with artist Federico Trepichio.
Lospennato built the guitar, and Trepichio painted his intricate drawings on it, a cornucopia of textures and pictorial gestures. These motifs, from spontaneous randomness, somehow create a consistent, fantastic landscape.
Specially commissioned by an art collector in the U.S., this instrument is truly one of a kind.
