    Pocket Art That Fits In The Palm Of Your Hand

    The fact that most of my collages are created directly on vintage found photos and postcards, give to them a "magic" plus ultra. Nostalgia combined with a contemporary twist are the key to read and understand my artworks. I always put myself into each art piece, revealing bit after bit my inspirations, my life experiences and of course, the great love for art.

    Vinyl Covers - Work In Progress

    Vinyl Covers - Work In Progress

    As I do for my abstract works and vintage collages, I like to share some pictures of my vinyl covers while I work on them too. These ruined and old surfaces come literally into a new life after my colours and stickers take over!

    Photo Transfer Technique

    Photo Transfer Technique

    I am a tireless art explorer, and in my experimentations I also embraced the photo transfer technique. Unlike the vintage photos, with this technique I can reproduce, enlarge and manipulate the starting image as I want. I also explored the canvas as a medium, a quite unusual thing for me.

    Vintage Collages - Work In Progress

    Vintage Collages - Work In Progress

    It's always funny to see how a vintage photo become slowly a weird-colorful art piece.

    Abstract Collages And Drawings - Work In Progress

    I use to share on my Instagram account some "work in progress" of my artworks. I love to see the way how my creative process evolves from picture to picture. Of course, I also like to engage with people and read their tips, questions and opinions.

    Fascination For The Past

    Fascination For The Past

    As a collector, I have always been truly fascinated by the magic aura of analogue photography. But I soon discovered that my mission was not to collect forgotten memories, but to revamp and throw them into the contemporary era.

    The Time travellers - Athlone

    The Time travellers - Athlone

    This shot was taken during the opening of my very first solo exhibition in Athlone, Ireland in 2014. The installation was quite interesting, the collages have been placed in a very long line, and has been hung with a tiny magnet on the wall.

    Events - The London Artisan

    Events - The London Artisan

    On December 2016 I have made my first market, taking part to The London Artisan event. I was thrilled and quite nervous too, but I brought with me some paper masks to cut to win the fear and to break the ice with the public. It was an amazing experience, quite stressful too!

    Working on abstract collages and drawings

    Working on abstract collages and drawings

    Although my interest s mainly focused on figurative art, the decorations done over the vintage portraits are purely abstract forms. Because of this reason, on 2016 I started to work on abstract collages and drawings, mixing and matching my deep interest in geometric and organic forms, combined with paper cuts and bright colours.

    Paper crochet masks

    Paper crochet masks

    As my first prototype came to life, I thought to continue in creating other crochet masks of different colours and patterns. In this way my collages can come to live, and anyone can take part in becoming a "living collage".

    Working on collages

    Working on collages

    My art research is mostly focused on collages realised over vintage found photos, postcards and vintage vinyl covers, that are my starting point for the creation of my handmade collages. In this picture I am holding some of the collages done in the beginning of 2017. These are bigger than the usual, I was lucky enough to find some vintage larger photos to work on. The average dimension of my collages are postcard sized.
