ABOUT

IT ALL STARTED FROM A PHOTOGRAPH BY ROBERT MAPPLETHORPE, WHO BLEW THE SPARK IN HIS MIND.
LATER, PIERRE ET GILLES, DAVID LACHAPELLE AND ERWIN OLAF INSPIRED HIM TO FULLY DEVOTE HIMSELF TO THE PICTURE,
NOT THE CLASSIC PHOTOGRAPHY, BUT A SERIES OF EXPERIMENTS, PRIMARILY DIGITAL, FOCUSING ON THE CUT, COLORS, SUBJECTS AND MEANING, WITH THE AESTHETICS AS THE FIRST GOAL.
IN THE SELFPORTRAITS HE EMPHASIZES AND QUESTIONS HIMSELF, SUBLIMATING HIS OWN IDENTITY, BECOMING AT THE SAME TIME ECLECTIC CHARACTERS AND AN ICON AS MEANINGFUL AS THE WORKS THEMSELVES.
THE ONLY COMMON GOAL, THE PIVOT OF THE ENTIRE ARTISTIC PRODUCTION, IS THE QUEST FOR BALANCE, WHICH IS THE ONLY DETECTOR OF OBJECTIVE BEAUTY.
ACTING DIGITALLY IN A PAINTING WAY, HIS WORKS HAVE THE VALUE OF PAINTINGS, FOR THIS REASON THE COLLECTION CONSIST OF UNIQUE AND LIMITED EDITION PIECES.
