I’m a Sicilian born artist with polish mother and I have always been in love with the impressive art and beauty of these countries as of their excesses. I studied in Art School and finished my MA in Industrial Design and Fashion in Milan. My passion for new ideas and the excitement coming from the North took my path to London where I moved in 2004.
Since then I experienced working as artwork and graphic designer for Fashion luxury labels based in Milan, London and Paris. These opportunities allowed me to work using different media and techniques from collage, to digital generated images and painting and sowing.I realized the creative limits of briefs and trends so I started my own work using mixed media including collage techniques as traditional arts inspired by my own roots and experience.
My work has been selected by Ray Davies from the KINKS to show inhis recording studio in London, KONK Studios, for the first Art Show which was the most important experience in my Art path so far. My paintings have also been displayed in different exhibitions and art fairs in East and West London including the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane, Candid Galleries in Angel, Cultivate in Vyner Street, Parallax in Chelsea Town Hall on King’s Road and in the Palace of Arts in Krakow (Poland).
My work is very personal and changes with my moods, passions and life experiences. It’s a growing process as my passions grow. I painted famous personalities that I found inspiring as some surreal images to express my feelings.
Some words to describe my work:
Dark Beauty, Attitude, Love, Pain, Obsession, Excess, Music, Fairytales, Deep Minds, Faded Truth, Timeless, Black, Gold, Red, Baroque
