Italian figurative painter...
Born in Piacenza (Italy), where I currently live and work, I am in a constant technical challenge in the attempt to make visible and tangible emotions and feelings with the use of different media and tools.
My works were exhibited worldwide and numerous galleries, art institutions and collectors own some of my paintings. I also won numerous international prizes. My works have been reviewed and published in various magazines and art books.
I am a co-founder (in 2011) of the artist group “Eoykos”, composed by six artists of figurative expression, in equilibrium between Surrealism and Metaphysics, born to demonstrate that art is still a privileged mean of communication, aimed at transmitting emotions and feelings.
I try to render a sense of timeless figures, not immobile, suspended in a surreal atmosphere, of a light imbued with a post-impressionistic dim-light. Near the blue with the tonal sounding, of lights and shadows, equally illuminated from the reverberation of chromatic lights, the figures seem like animated beings at the mercy of the wave’s perpetual motion, in a transfigured reality, and a boundless sense of freedom fulfillment.
My realism is silent, intimate, and my paintings contain an unspoken, mysterious narrative, which offers an emotionally and psychologically loaded presentation that attracts the viewer. This atmosphere has been finally emphasized in the works “waters”, ultra-modern and complex compositions, where natural light and filtered light, within whose balance man lives, break the subjects in a multitude of dynamic reflections, in a precarious balance that belongs to peace, harmony and beauty. Water represents the key element of human balance, a symbol of life, its principle and origin, from which to reflect on a personal vision, where the coexistence between symbolic elements dialogues.
My apprenticeship and artistic maturity did not follow a classic path. Initially I attended various painting courses, experimenting with different styles. The artistic approach evolved via the use of various techniques, from graphite, to watercolor, to acrylic and, finally, to oil. It is a continuous technical challenge in the attempt to make visible and tangible emotions and feelings with the use of different media and tools.
The works presented span about twenty years of activity and are gathered into three categories: portraits, still lives, waters.
