Born in 1965, I am a self-taught painter and musician.

At first I chose abstract painting, based on gesture and improvisation. I tried to find harmony of opposites, combining movement and flat areas, transparency and opacity, raw energy and sophistication.

Then I progressively got back to a figurative approach. Photography is the starting point of this work. According to me, it is the unwavering mark of the real. Then my role as a painter is to mix it with my own trace, exploring different techniques. In my paintings and drawings I use photo as a model, in a process similar to photorealism. In my mixed media works, I start with a digital picture, which I transform by using different media (acrylic, varnish, collage), trying to turn the virtual image into an organic work.


My figurative paintings are characterized by the nearly complete absence of human presence, and also by an almost permanent move through the natural or urban landscape. Like a ghost, the human being vanishes behind the landscape. It is a melancholic witness of modernity, passing through, trying to escape its own life and time.
