I was born in Italy in 1984 and that’s where I grew up. My father introduced me to drawing since early childhood, sharing with me his passion for painting.

At 17 I started expressing my artistic vibe through music and singing, so I started playing in various musical projects, I studied how to use my voice, from primordial guttural sounds to more classic vocalizations.

In 2010 I moved to Barcelona (Spain) and I got captured by surrealist painting which I started using to express my point of view on humanity’s past, present and future.

In 2017 I came back to Italy, in my home town and family house, and that’s where I started dedicating myself with more focus, passion and intensity to artistic disciplines, introducing perfomances to go with my art exhibitions.

In 2018 I started questioning my artistic journey and decided to totally renew my expressive language, leaving aside for a while sculptural creations, but maintining music.

After some time I felt the need to approach more expressive, realistic and structured modes, by using simple materials like bamboo and metal wires to represent people around me, telling their stories through frameworks and scaffholdings which sustain, self-support, embrace and restructure.

This transition to sculpture took me in 2020 to a fresh new start towards Site-Specific and Land Art, creating a first work at Parco Risorgive del Bacchiglione in Villaverla (VI, Italy) named SPACE Q-19, and this was used both to present my pieces, as well as a shared space for musicians, photographers and models.

I am currently cooperating with various private and public institutions in Land Art projects, to promote territories and people, while still creating pieces on commision and for art galleries.

The thread is self-support to understand what’s around me. The thread is tensegrity, self-sufficiency and direction.
