A selection of painting from 2007 to today. I really enjoy to give shape to my visions using oil colours mixed with a special melange of natural oils I invented to make them more brilliant.
After 2011 I have been focusing more and more in creating multimedia projects, expanding the Parallel World I have gave shape with Torineide and The Book of Shadows, mixing art with animation, Augmented Reality, and the “forgery” of ancient documents and artifacts coming from the parallel dimension.
From my point of view art should be something to enjoy. It should aid people in forgetting their worries, showing the beautifulness of being in the here and now, the magic of being alive. I invite the viewer into my world like a guest into my home. I want them to be relaxed and comfortable. My paintings accomplish their purposes if when taken into a home or gallery, they create a sense of happiness and an appreciation.
My works have been exhibited worldwide in prestigious museums, including the Musée Grévin in Paris, Montreal and Geneva and the Natural Science Museum in Turin, art galleries such as the Guildhall Gallery, London, and at acclaimed art events like the Venice Biennale (2015).
Here I would like to share one of my favourite, a solo exhibition organised and commissioned by the City of Ciriè to present the book “Ciriè Andata e Ritorno” (Ciriè Round Trip). The exhibition, held at the prestigious D’Oria Palace, consisted of my original watercolour illustrations of the book and a selection of my paintings.
Visitors were greeted by an installation I created as a metaphor for the city, 'Symphony for a City' (printing plates and oil colours on canvas). I donated the installation to the City of Ciriè and it is currently still on display at the City Hall even today.
The exhibition was the centre of the cultural life of the vibrant city, hosting poetry readings, little concertos, TV interviews, and book presentations.
