I live and work in Fiuggi, home of the “lunificio”.
After a beginning of unfettered experimentation with materials and colours, I developed an interest in textures yielded by exposure to sunlight on paintings.
In the 1990s I worked in the studio of designer Giuseppe Martini. As a designer, I craft and sell technical designs for fabrics in America and Europe- this is how I started incorporating computer design in drawings.
In the 2005 exhibition: “Tutti i colori del sacro vuoto” (“All the colours of the sacred void”) at the “Slongia pub” in Fiuggi.
In the 2009 collective exhibition: “Multimediale” (“Multimedia”) at the “Officina della Memoria e dell’Immagine” in Fiuggi.
From 2009 to 2012 I participated in the works “Monumento al caos” (“Monument to chaos”) and “Scultura abitabile” (“Habitable Sculpture”) by Maestro Piero Fantastichini from whom I learned the concept of the “Star Sign”, the use of resin, phosphorus and perfecting the technique of digital drawing.
In 2010 I accomplished “Requiem K 626”, a glass microsphere sculpture; in 2011 I accomplished Digimoon in approximately three months of daily computer work: The concept of the lunar portrait is born.
From 2012 to present I have been working on a series of works on “la Luna e il Segno” (“The Moon and the Star Sign”).
In 2014, the first 25 lunar portraits were united with their respective owners at an outdoor garden: “un incontro inatteso di lune” (an “unexpected lunar meeting”) as a dedication to the girl who had commissioned lunar portraits number 26, 27, 28 on the same day.
In 2017 I participated in a short film entitled “Il laboratorio dell’arte” (“The Art Lab”), in which I play “La quarta luna” (“The Fourth Moon”).
July 2017 I was entered by Vittorio Sgarbi to be among eighty other finalists for the “Milan International Art Award” at the “Dal Verme Theatre” in Milan.
September 2020 I make the lunar portrait number 100.
February 2021 I make the lunar portrait number 200.
March 2021 Hosted as artist in residence at the “Fundación Canaria Gernot Huber” in Tenerife I create “A new Moon” sculpture in the round with a diameter of 1.5 meters.
Currently I divide my time between lunar portraits, a purely informal study of the Star Sign with the IHSV Series and the creation of a “lunar chessboard” 150 cm in length.
