Me

I have always been dedicated to the art activity.

Learning the basic techniques of drawing independently and attending an art school, continuing my education 

graduating in architecture. Parallel development of my creative talent working for many years in advertising

"touching" the world of design and interior and landscape architecture.

 

Painting is a process done completely by myself, with moments of intensity and latency occurred more times over the years. 

The techniques that I use and I'm still trying to comprehend are classic: watercolor, pastel, acrylic and especially oil. 

The same classic choice is the will to bring forward a figurative painting speech, almost hyperreal that is also the research of the art performance aimed at expressing an emotion, condition from which I cannot and I do not want disregard.

According to me painting and first of all beautiful painting is virtuosity, study and research.

This does not exclude the personal development, the subjective vision, that makes different any work of art compared to photography.

Then the academic and working influence are not the last to lead to the final result even through their filter.

The deepest reason that moves the hand, the head and the heart of an artist is the will to convey an emotion,

a fact that happens when the real essence of the "opera" reaches those who are able to benefit and enjoy.

As usually occurs in an artistic path and in the development of an artwork, there is a Muse.

Mine has a double face, beyond the fact that art is an instinct, an inescapable fact, an intrinsic aspect of the personality of an individual.

The oldest, the one that has been with me since my childhood and that takes up all the square inches of my paintings and my boards is really about many faces, snouts, creature's eyes that share with us this world, the animal's world.

Love for animals, recognize their beauty, not only external is the first spark that revived back after lots of time my need to paint.

But the real charmer, the muse who enchanted me and left me no more free is Africa; it forced me to declare all my love for her.

The wild continent, "animal" par excellence, the one where all the children dreams and the deepest and complex essence meet the adult world and suddenly realized, seduced me completely. 

Falling victim of Africa sickness I felt the strong desire to tell it, to reveal it in order to let everybody know, love and respect, and with it also the fragile beauty of its inhabitants, so precarious and subject to the whims and to many false human needs.

That's why all my subjects are African Animals.
