Gactus Series

“The Gactus transforms itself and integrates the surroundings, molds itself, becomes a layer. The heart retraces its body and takes different forms, becoming unique – cat and cactus – the heart-shaped cactus and the heart’s cat are reflected.” DeniCorsino, 2019/20

GACTUS. Illustrations that connect art and daily life.

Gactus is a character born on March 26th, 2019: a cat that lives over a heart-shaped cactus. My inspiration comes from the interaction with cats, the appreciation for landscaping and the

influence of social media. The Gactus lives in a space without limits or borders, creating its own rules and an imaginary dimension of endless possibilities.

“GACTUS: born from the creative process based on the mutation and on the re-creation of daily life, in which the cat integrates, disintegrates, shapes and becomes a pattern. Its heart (body) and pillow (heart-shaped cactus) become a “like” icon.”

THE GACTUS BECOMES AN ILLUSTRATED BOOK

From a drawing the Gactus became a character and then turned into a bigger project called “Gactus – a creative experience”. Since 2019 this little cat has expanded with so many possibilities that is being illustrated in a book without words.

A visual proposal that connects my creative process to references from the contemporary art and daily life subjects. During the quarantine time also Gactus stayed home and showed us how to be creative. STAY TUNED. COMING SOON. 🙂

“The cat merges with the object, becomes it and vice versa, takes on mirrored forms and colours being itself the continuity of the space.”

The illustration “Tribute to Pistoletto” was built with objets of daily life which are protagonist in social media during the quarantine as rolls of toilet paper. Inspired by the work “Venere degli stracci” by Pistoletto, the illustration re-creates the art of the twentieth century and continues to promote ART to the people.

The idea of “Arte Povera” is still vivid nowadays and is essential to creatively rethink life during the lockdown. A tribute to Mario Merz: the Gactus igloo is made with everyday objects, because we are all at home during quarantine and being creative is the richest path we can take.”
