I was born in AMANDOLA, Marche, in 1973, I now live in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.
I love observing people, imagining their feelings and their stories, then turning their stories into my art.
As a child I did it by drawing; when I moved to Milan to work at Walt Disney, I learned the language of comics and illustration.
I went from pencil to brush, then to the computer and finally to the iPad, but I never stopped thinking like an old school artist.
What I observe becomes an image; sometimes the image takes over and gets so strong it has to take a physical shape. This is why I went back to use my brushes to create large colored painting: because I love the color and the feelings it conveys.
VINAVIL & ACRYLIC PIXEL
My first <Crooked Montage> was born as a joke. I wanted to give a picture as a present to a friend, but I also wanted to play a prank on him.
The picture was made up of many printed sheets, but he had to assemble them himself; piece by piece in a huge collage. I liked the final result, so I decided to continue the experiment.
I chose to make big size paintings, to fully express my passion for composition, the synthesis I learned from comics and the balance of colors.
First, I start imagining a scene, then I draw it. I make an endless series of corrections to the digital files, then I print the sheets for my collage, and I work on them, again and again, with brushes and acrylic paint.
Part of the work is digital, but the final touch to the painting is added with the real brush. Painting is my true calling, and has always been, since when, barely 17 years old, I decided that Art would be my profession.
So much history cannot fit into a small painting.
