ULISSE SCHWARZ

With its fourth release of 2021, Villahangar kicks off a new artistic collaboration, entrusting the creation of the cover of the new track Mbokodo Feat. Tabia by Leo Guardo to the artist Ulisse Schwarz.

An artistic activity that began very early, since he was a child: he has always loved to draw, but his turning point was at the age of eleven, when, breaking a shoulder, for two months he could only entertain himself with the pencil. So, he began by copying photographs: faces, flowers and places, with the intention of learning to draw a little of everything. 

Over the years he has become passionate about landscape, light, color. But with a constant opinion over time: that drawing and painting mean understanding, and that therefore it is not enough to learn one thing mechanically and reproduce it an unspecified number of times.

Over time he has therefore entertained himself in the study of architectures, human figures, objects and the most disparate themes. 

He attended art high school, but, he says “Most of the things I have learned are the result of repeated attempts and an incalculable number of failures and errors”.

Ulisse Schwarz lives in France, where he owns an atelier. He says: “I have a lot of space available, and this helps me a lot, since when I find myself without ideas or do not know what to work on, the only causes that lead me to decreases in productivity are my own limits, and this allows me to work on myself”.

His sources of inspiration have been and are many. He is naturally curious, and turns his interest to different fields: music or poetry inspire him as much as painting, as well as countless artists.

ULISSE SCHWARZ X LEO GUARDO – MBOKODO EP

For Villahangar and the cover of the new track Mbokodo Feat. Tabia by Leo Guardo, says: “I also take this experience as a way to detach myself from the themes that are familiar to me and to focus instead on what the songs themselves arouse me, so I try to adapt images and ideas to the music itself”.

He thus created the image of a female face, emphasizing the important and powerful message of the song that, enriched by Tabia’s performance, pays homage to the South African continent for sensations and also in the name: the term Mbokodo, the title of the track, in South Africa often refers to the saying “you strike a woman; you strike a rock.” Representing the strength and courage of South African women, and with them those of the whole world.
