Biography

Born in 1970, I'm a self-taught Italian painter, and used to draw and paint since I was a kid.
1989. High school education in humanities (Schio, VI), where I deepened my love for art and literature.
1995. Graduation in experimental psychology (University of Padua).
2001. PhD in cognitive neurosciences (International School of Advanced Studies, Trieste). I worked in scientific research focusing my studies especially on the organization of concepts and meaning in the human brain.
2005. Master degree in sport psychology (Psicosport, Milan). This allowed me to work on the optimization of sport performance both with young and professionals athletes participating to Olympic games and international competitions.
2012 – present. Experience in marketing for a corporation operating in online gambling (Italy and Malta). Main projects related to communication and events organization.

In 2016 I decided to work part-time and devote all my spare time to my passion for art. Since 2017 I started to participate in collective exhibitions and art fairs in Italy and Europe.

Project

I’d love to use the different micro-environments of the room to display my actual-texture mixed media paintings. Their peculiarity is that, being made with acrylic gels, stones and sands on canvas or board, their view changes over time with the hour of the day. For this reason I plan to add extra lamps and small spotlights in the room, to stress the contrasts of light and shadow and to give the viewer the idea that paintings change, as we change.
Given the nature of my artworks, I’ll also love to play with the concept of smooth and rough, covering the room’s furniture with silky or raw fabrics and adding natural objects such as small stones, tiny pieces of wood, to highlight the connection of my art to nature and raw, basic elements.
All artworks and “stage props” will share neutral tones, attempting to emphasize our personal search of unity and identity by embracing both our soft and rough sides, and acknowledging we are rooted to nature.
