G Caruso is a traditional italian artist focused on studying and transmitting the knowledge and methods of old classical masters.
After years of intense foundation work in the studio of Antonio Marroni, italian artist preserving the tradition of the “Bottega d’Arte” with all its techniques, G graduated at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera di Milano, with a curriculum focused on figure, pedagogy and symbolism in art.
G Caruso has been a teacher at the Laboratorio Artistico of Milan for ten years before moving to Berlin and starting the collaboration with the Berlin Drawing Room.
G’s personal art and teaching are deeply intertwined through the concepts of constant practice, study of classics and a disciplined approach to projects, always with the goal of discovering new things to then bring to the students.
The love for functional anatomy and the human body bleeds into the sport practice of weight lifting and brazilian jiujitsu, that gives G Caruso the “coach” approach to tutoring and supporting other artists in their projects.
We had a super discussion our perception and perspectives. I’ve learned that instead of when we have to catch a ball or pour water, Amblyopy is a force to see and understand perspective. Because we can see everything in focus.
I love your way of explaining things, you have the ability to make notion get to a deeper level of just mental understanding, which is where they are actually assimilated and and transformed into independent actions.
G is the best teacher you can have. Other than knowing a lot of things and having beautiful tattoos, G is an open and available person, strict when needed and very funny when in a good mood. G has a big passion for the teaching materials and manages to transmit it perfectly to the students, loved like children. If you have potential G will follow you like a guard dog, completely trusting your ability to reveal yourself. Breathing on your neck, but behind the mask of a strict teacher there is an extremely empathic person, with an inate ability to get people and what is going through their minds. It’s hard not to get attached.
G is a true teacher. With the ability to cheer, encourage, see student’s hardships and strengths, even if potential, at the same time.
This is a rare quality that alone would make G precious. But on top of that there are organisational and clarity qualities(dowries) that are so important during a class.
The relationship that creates with students is vital, rich and always deeply sincere
With a didactical approach so lively and spontaneous, G knows how to transmit and infuse the love for art and especially for figure in a fully immersive way. The biggest strength is in the ability to recognise strengths and weaknesses of the students and encourage them to overcome them without creating frustration. Helping them at the same time to find the expressive method more attuned to their own attitudes and beings.
G is one of the few people I know that managed to make the passion for art and teaching a job and that makes everything possible and the time together flows harmoniously and with a very unique balance. G is a great artist, with solid foundations given value through passion and mental openness towards everything that is new in terms of artistic expression.
G approach to teaching is immersive and stimulating, personalised and never expected.
G’s goal is to put every student in the condition, regardless of age, level and skill, to find their own expressive form and this is thanks to an investment in sperimentation and constructive support into finding the expressive message of every person. If I had to use one term to define this way of teaching I’d call it an avanguarde maieutic.
The adjectives that come to my mind thinking about G caress’s way of teaching are essential and effective. Essential because the theoretical expositions are comprehensive but agile and the practical demos are straight to the point. Effective because what you learn this way becomes and invisible tool box ready for use to master subjects, materials, different techniques and find your own style. Everything always with a light heart and a pinch of humor.
I love your workshops and especially your humor and way of getting us into drawing and building up the relationship between us and the people, statues, things we draw.
Your story is inspiring, and a reminder that art is so much more than just the output, it’s a journey of discovery.
Thanks to G I feel secure enough to keep drawing, and to let my hand flow, and to let my eyes see, in a way that even photography didn’t do it. G is an amazing human being and teacher and artist.
I really enjoyed G’s lesson very much: a teacher very informative, very interesting, very likeable and engaged.
