I have always been interested in environmental and animal rights issues and, since the first attempts at painting, they have been the driver of my creativity. I no longer know how many images I have created, representing the the most disparate animals, but I constantly feel an irresistible call to transfer the great love I have for our planet on canvas. I feel the need to communicate this love to people, to increase this sensitivity in them. I want to make them realize in my own way how important it is to make the world more sustainable, to actively take care for this great but vulnerable home and to protect those who live in it.
I was born and grew up in Bolzano, Italy, main town of a culturally very particular area, which made me feel a bit foreign. In Venice, where I lived during my years of study, many thought the South Tyrolean people were only native German speakers. My family, however, is typically Italian and
studying German at school in Bolzano did not lead me to speak this language fluently. A few years later I went to feel myself a foreigner in other places: in Vienna, in Austria, and then in Munich, Germany, learning in this way the language I might have already known. Now I’m also learning to deal with another form of communication, with which I feel out of place: the world of social networks and the internet.
Now living elsewhere, both physically and virtually, is part of my life. But in the nature and in my studio, between brushes and colors, I never feel like a foreigner, I’m at home.
About my Art
I began my artistic education at the Academy of Fine Arts of Venice, achieving the BFA in Painting in 2009 and the MFA in Graphic Arts two years later with the highest scores. In 2014, I moved to Vienna, Austria where I improved my artistic career, moreover working as a Scenic Painter for the Viennese Theatres, including the State Opera. In 2018, after long inspiring trips around Asia and Australia, I moved to Germany and started working primarily in my private studio in Munich.
Exhibitions of my works were held in various cities like Milan, Venice, Rome, Turin, Berlin & Vienna.
Elle Galleria in Preganziol, Treviso, Italy.
“Fascinated by the animal kingdom, I make it the protagonist of my figurative language, creating timeless images.
I love the realization of artworks with many different elements: by feeling the pleasure of oil colors on canvas, looking for amazing effects with plexiglass and lights; by handling paper and printing press to create very precious editions of etchings or either by public involvement through installation and performance.”
