  • Biography
    In my artworks I often recombine elements taken from the reality that surrounds me - and in particular from my experience as surflifesaving athlete - to reflect on today's society and on the new difficulties of living in it. Translating what I feel into images gives me strength and helps me overcome difficulties. Through my brightly colored paintings I try to suggest an interpretation of today’s life that is less gray and more proactive, in order to give a space to the light even in these uncertain times. 
    Over the last year and within a context of eco-sustainable practice, I've started a study project on recycled materials, in order to find alternative supports to the canvas and question the hierarchy between the various components of the artwork. In my shop you will find also some landscape paintings and studies of old masters that I realized during my art studies.
