NOW I SEE started in the end of 2013 thanks to two young Italian guys.
Francesco Maria Mancarella, young musician and composer, had the idea many months before, but onlu thanks to the help of Antonio Greco, musician and designer of the project, this idea became real at the beginning of 2014.
But what it really is? It is the name of the project, and it can be summarized as ” the painting paino”.
It is the unique paino in the world, without strings and back panel, that can emit sounds( thanks to a digital sylent system) and paint on a real canvas at the same time, making unique artworks.
The final result are unique artworks made by original songs and painted canvasses strongly tied eachother, artwork that only this instruments can create.
Buyers become owner of unique artworks made by original music and painted canvas.
Each of these is tied to a story, a thought, an experience.
Every artwork has a QR code that allow to immediately listen to the original song tied to the canvas using modern devices as smartphones and tablets.
