"Marco Fantini offers an alternate view on paranoia that does not rely on the viewer’s unconscious projection of experience. He suggests it is generated by the artist’s wilful submission to the associative power of the psyche. Paranoid and suspicious about his own conscious state of reality, Fantini plays the artist as illusionist, charlatan and trickster, challenging a literal reading of his work within conventional psychoanalysis. In the artworks of Fantini, representational images engaged through the mediums of painting and moving image and often have more than one dominant interpretation."

Apparel Music 'Birthday 10' by Marco Fantini

In the special occasion of our 10th birthday we wanted to make something to create something really memorable, bringing together in two vinyl some of the most in uential artists who took part in the making of our history and some new ones, yet prominent and successful, to the family.

A very special and important mention for the artist and friend of the AM’s clan Marco Fantini who blessed us with the chance of choosing amongst some of his stunning artworks for the covers of the record. Each production, indeed, has a different and dedicated piece that reflects the mood of the track. Thanks Marco for having such an important role in this creative process!
