A musician and a painter together : Andrea Castello and Alberto Seganfreddo. Two prodigies who have connected their forms of expression to get across how art can be considered as a combination of many experiences and emotions, directed to impress and to create a new vision of what is surrounding us. From all this was born Vood, a crew that brings art to a new level.The first of a series of innovations is painting to the beat of music : the artist follows the melody of the moment to get the inspirations and to create new paints. To capture that moment and to show that all art is evolving, creative moments are taken and reassembled in a video by the staff members. This shows how, mixing creativity and innovation, you can break old patterns and you can access a new expressiviness. Vood is a way to say enough to art known up to now and to convey to the public the new artistic concept. Vood is a union of young talents “fightings” for new horizons. Vood is comparable to a creative factory that produces more and more current, fresh and provocative graphics. Italo Aliani, video editor and graphic designer, allowed to create a logo where Vood is not just a word, but an innovative symbol.
Do you want to know my story ?My name is Alberto Seganfreddo and I feel like I was born twice.My physical birth took place on April 16 1984 in Arzignano, from two fantastic parents, a musician and a painter. I would say that art was written in my DNA and in fact soon it came into my life making me born again. The passion for drawing was born when I was 8 thanks to my grandfather Bruno Cozza ( poet of Vicenza ) who brought me to the world of design and who helped me drawing the first lines accompanied by his hand.First works illustrated everyday life situations and represented what was surrounding me. During my childhood, in a kids challenge whose motif was “fairytales”, I got excited; I realized how I could convey with pictures and I understood that art would have always been part of my life. During my artistic career I focused on rapresenting comics, surreal places and fantastic characters.At the age of 22 I realized a shirts clothing line with my own first brand; a new adventure that allowed me to experiment new horizons. I’ve also cultivated my passion for music and within 3 years I composed many songs that I collected in 3 albums. I collaborated as a graphic designer for a project at Ferplast S.p.A., leader in the production of accessories for pets. Then I went to Venice where I became refined in painting and water color finishing and I was in the top 10 of a painting competition. After a time off I restarted to paint with a new concept, where emotions and memories gave an important signify. Later I started to organize theme parties taking care of every minimal detail of scenic design.About a year ago I met Andrea Castello, with whom I created a perfect combination of painting, music and video: the arts that had most influenced my life at that time. Vood is an experimentation of 3 arts that could express a new management view of a fresh movement.Now I’m working on spinning paintings, called 4/4 ( four-four time ), created by musical sound with a video that you will see. The site you are reading has been designed by myself and the graphic designers that organized all the set.I hope that everything we will do from now on, will be for you a starting point to evolve the present.
My name is Andrea Castello and I was born in 1986 in Vicenza, when Queen were playing at Wembley stadium in London, when Madonna made her debut with “True Blue” album, when the “Boom” was a landmark for the night-life in Vicenza.What to say… I touched the keys of the first piano at the age of 10 in a famous hotel in Vicenza , then my mother understood that nobody taught me how to play “Jingle Bells” but I was able to play it, and that was the strange thing. I’ve been sent to a music school, first to private tutor and then I attended the conservatory. I decided to organize my first parish party starting with two compact discs and a live mixer. The next day I was contacted by a lot of families, that were shocked about my event; too much transgressive for those conformists. I took this experience as a reason to improve and, updating myself in musical and technological environment, I opened my first disco-bar at the age of 20 called “En Plein Air” in Vicenza, where I took care of the artistic direction and management. Being the owner of a bar required big responsabilities that allowed me to develop administrative expertise. In 2012 I met Alberto Seganfreddo with whom I created an artistic collaboration that gave me the opportunity to combine my music with his painting. Vood idea was born in Formentera, a place that inspired me to create a “source of artistic ideas” that I named Factory. After a time off I decided to restart to cultivate my passion for music concretely, launching my registration studio, where I can express my art introducing a new musical style.
