Artist statement

Painting is like second nature to me, it is natural to think, breathe and absorb vibrations and use them to recreate a different world while I paint, according to my ideas, my sensibility, my desires, my doubts…

I’m in permanent dialog with human nature. I try to understand it better and to “translate” these feelings through my expression as a fabulous distorted mirror.

I have a fascination of the emotionality that lies beneath the surface of my characters, I am absorbed by the labyrinth we all have inside us and of the human behavior as a result of it.

My creations are an invitation to dialogue, introspection, understanding and at the same time, I suppose that might be seen as a society scanner. The viewer will definitely find a hint of sarcasm but generally i have a propitiatory and optimistic look on humanity.

Mountebanks, clowns, ballerinas, puppeteers, hypocrites, politicians and many musicians as the main characters, in my view for the multiple facets of the “common man  today” and also for the world we’re living in…
