Arrow Down

"My yearning timidity
makes painting essential to me,
my art is something that speaks
instead of me”.

I was born in Turin; I am a citizen of the world, and Milanese by adoption. Being on the move the whole time has been marvellous, but to feel at home I needed to create a common thread, something that was just mine that went with me everywhere. So I chose painting and humorous drawings as companions for life who are invisible but always by my side. And are above all mine.

I paint what I want and when I want, but I do so every blessed day. There are no rules – I am influenced by everything and by nothing. With painting I have always wanted to portray emotions, sentiments or just what is beautiful or unexpected. From the featureless faces of my adolescence, I went to the gigantic close-ups of wild animals, abstract painting in an “abstract” moment of my existence and then went back to taking pictorial stills, to capture the moment. Everything strictly in oil.

My cartoons are on the other hand an ironic rebellion against my surroundings. The simplest way to communicate with and shelter from the people around me is to use humour…
My personal weapon against external greyness.

Take life seriously certainly – but never ourselves and our society.
