La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

Al Marietta grew up in the foothills of Appalachia. From an early age, he fell in love with the folklore of the region, recording them through oral retellings, crude
drawings, and the written word. As an artist Al tries to keep the soul of the woods and his youth ever close,blending childish beauty with dark themes. Fantastic realism serves as the backdrop for many of Al’s bizarre characters, be they in illustrations, prose, poetry, or song.
