Cardboard Towns is a blog about paintings, drawings and visual arts by Marco Bigliazzi, which is me.
The title comes from the Cardboard Town exhibition held at the SMS Art Center, Pisa, between june and august 2011.
In case someone cares, here is an interview about all this stuff that was published on the first issue of the Journal Of Urban Cultural Studies and can be downloaded for free.
Città di Cartone, o Cardboard Towns per gli anglofoni, è il blog dedicato ai dipinti e agli scarabocchi di Marco Bigliazzi, cioè me.
Il titolo viene fuori da una mostra che si è tenuta al Centro Espositivo SMS, a Pisa, tra il giugno e l’agosto 2011.

Thank you – you’re really too kind!
Some striking, interesting work in your Cardboard Towns. I’m exploring, among other topics, the link between mindfulness and the creative process. Will be happily following.
Hey, thanks Thomas, you’re welcome.

Thanks Tim – my email addres is just on the right column of this very blog —->
Thanks for the follow Marco! Did you get to see Hoedicke’s paintings? I don’t think your work is similar by the way, just you create the sense of ‘mass’ and volume with the same authority.
Yes, I didn’t know Hoedicke’s work. I think that you’re right, there is something similar. Thanks for your suggestion.
Similar in a good way tho!
complimenti sei veramente bravo .
grazie a te, Pavolo

Hi Elli, and thanks, that’s really kind of you.
Keep on bloggin’.
Cheers – mb
I am very fascinated by your skeches. I will have to take the time to look at all of them.
Thanks nannus – just don’t take it as a job
No, its a pleasure :-)
I hope you will come to Germany for an exhibition.
Well, that would be great
Fantastic and inspiring work. As soon as I started looking at your sketches I thought they’d be great for animation. And then I discovered that you and your production studio make animated films! I have a hybrid animation, live action and documentary film project set in New York at the beginning of hip-hop movement. Your drawings of high-rise buildings are in exactly the style I’ve visualized for the movie. Would love to try and raise some European co-production money and come make a film with you in Italy. Think big… Dream big. Best wishes, Michele (Not a guy but a girl!)
Hey, Michele, thank you! And best wishes for your interesting film project – I know it’s not at all easy funding animation.
Amazing talent, Marco. Thank you for sharing it with us.
Thank you, indeed, Kurt
I love your work- you have all kinds of cool stuff to look at! I will come back again to check out your blog in more detail. Thanks for following my blog!
You’re welcome, neuroticomic
