He inherited his passion for art from his mother who, leveraging on her ceramist background, gave him as a child the rudiments of drawing and colors usage, as well as having involved him in visiting exhibitions and museums in Italy and abroad.
During his classical studies and his degree in electronic engineering he never stopped venting his passion for arts by concentrating on modeling, painting and crafting military lead figures presented in local exhibitions.
In recent years, attracted by the sophisticated drawing tools available on personal computers, he has moved on to experiment with an innovative art form, based on the digital elaboration of sketches drawn manually by pen on paper.
His idea of experimental artistic research starts from the premise of having to go beyond the use of traditional art tools and find a way to fully exploit new technologies while preserving the human factor, which must always be the basis of the realization of the work and must be able to guide the automatisms offered by technology.
In his works there is a continuous experimentation even starting from a very simple basic element which is the sketch, that is the freehand sign, without constraints, immediate, on paper, which is then digitally reworked to highlight its meaning, to express the sensations of the moment in which it was performed.
The result is a digital high-definition series of abstract artworks presented in electronic format or as fine art prints on high-quality paper, available in limited editions and customizable sizes as needed.
These sketches are born in real time from his interaction with situations he is daily facing and their goal is to represent the moods and feelings that crowd his mind. Continuous mood changes, the complexity we face every day between contrasts and thousand facets, the need to be pragmatic and get to the essence, the hope of being able to find the time to simply think ...all became a deep jump in an abstract universe.
His works have been initially presented on the main social networks aimed at creativity and arts.Here he began to attract the interest of gallerists and curators and was selected for participation in exhibitions or popular initiatives, as described in the next sections
