Alberto Cittone, aka Cy Tone, is a 34 years-old industrial and graphic designer from Turin, ITALY.
He studied Graphic Design at the European Institute of Design and defines his work as “evidence, experiments, results”.
After a 8 years old career as industrial designer he became a creative freelance designer
He feeds on 3D modeling, rendering and Photoshop working with various agencies in Turin, but his main interested is the production of creative and artistic images and videos
So reads his manifesto, demonstrating a strong attitude to the social and knowledge of the new media world, focused on networking, the appropriations free.
Image manipulation has seen by the artist as an enrichment and growth, a new creative purpose.
If his artistic world is formed by the digital, certainly not the reality he has escaped from the hands. In fact, his last project involves the construction of territories in 3D, which he shapes like a proud creator and where he imagines being able to move.

How does an idea for a digital work come up?
I think it's the same process as any creative project, digital or not, it always takes a good time of study… then the same.. evidence, experiments, results…
What do you consider to be critical aspects for the success of a digital work?
I never value anything to look for success, this kind of creativity is necessary for me as a vent valve for all the commercial works I have to do to support myself.

I have not the faintest idea, but I try to give answers by creating beauty.
