Artist - Italy

He lives in Florence, where he studied classics and graduated in Law. He later worked as a journalist in a communications company.
At a certain point in his life he feels the strong desire to realize the dream of always, to devote himself full time to painting, the true passion.
The interest in art, in particular for classical sculpture, plays an important role in the choice of the subjects of the works. He attended courses in painting techniques and quadraturism at the Art Institute of Porta Romana in Florence and opened a workshop in that hill of Bellosguardo whose panorama of the city has inspired many artists and writers around the world.

The contents of the works, of extreme contemporaneity also for the themes they deal with, have a reference to the classicism that implies the desire to give back a form to the disarming and disorienting chaoticity in which we find ourselves living. It is not a return to order, but a return to the body, to its proportions, to harmony and beauty, to the most secluded and absorbed thought. There is often a reference to the Myth, but also to the inner feelings and the desire for a greater awareness of man with respect to some fundamental values. In particular, the affirmation of a balance that mitigates both personal and social conflicts, a greater sensitivity for the environment and for animals. These are the themes that form the background to the paintings with surrealistic and metaphysical hints.
The provocation, present in some works, aims at a calm reflection on topics of particular sensitivity, which are almost 'exorcised' by the unprecedented contextualization of the elements expressed.

Following the all-Italian strand of surrealism that lives and breathes above all with the representation of the classic portrait brought to the dreamlike level, a new interpretation of the subject in the real is born.
In some works the face is taken as if it were a photographic shot and it is evident the reference to the plasticity of the statuary in the bidimension of the picture through the representation of the opaque eyes, which refer to the cavity of those missing in the ancient marbles: and there, in those cavities, there is room for each one of ours, as if they were a mirror of the soul of the observer.

Muse par excellence is the sculpture Face of Ivory, which for the artist reflects the mystery, sensuality, and those 'fractures' that mark the inexorable passage of time. In his deep and enigmatic gaze, the artist sees enclosed the secrets of his ancient history and identity that no one has been able to reveal.

The strong passion for rock music is the soundtrack in some works with obvious hints.
