Since childhood much of my free time was dedicated to drawing.  In particular I enjoyed making portraits of my relatives after a family lunch or depicting a natural environment and elements of nature.  My artistic production started therefore as figurative .  Some of the figurative paintings you will find here, realized with oil painting on canvas, date back to the beginning of my artistic career while others, more recent, are realised using also enamel colors and sometimes materials of the nature.

Then, for several years, a conceptual symbolic artistic flow emerged.  This artistic wave that I followed is characterized by the performance of paintings representing abstract figures depicting stylized natural beings, religious archetypes or myths that sometimes draw the viewer’s attention to issues of universal value.  Most of these paintings are marked by high contrasted tones and are realized on a base of black enamel background. Moreover, some of them may be either hanged vertically or horizontally in accordance with the watcher’s point of view.

At a later stage my artistic sensibility turned into an abstract branch with, sometimes, surrealistic intuitions.These artworks may have multiple interpretations according to the viewer’s perspective and experience of life, so that the viewer becomes himself/herself the artist. They may be either hanged vertically or horizontally in accordance with the watcher’s point of view.
Most of these artworks are realized with oil painting on a base of enamel poured or dripped and smeared on canvas with a knife modified by atmospheric agents, with pieces of clotted enamel or materials of the nature.
