According to his thought, artists are witnesses of their age, he loves conceptual art and thinks that a work should convey emotions and above all a message: this is what it seeks in its work. The basic message is often a denunciation, represents society, what happens, the direction we are going to. He wants to communicate his ideas directly, say something in a simple way and bring people closer to conceptual art. Using different styles but what it means is always: "Wake up people, look at what's happening!"
Our current society is increasingly running and people do not really think about what happens, distracted by TV, football, and false myths. It is in this scenario the artist has a duty to show people the truth.
He is a tireless researcher, wants to understand, seek, amaze, communicate: basically, play.

Often, he simply lets the color transmit and emotion, especially in his most intimate works, the legacy of the baby still inside of himself.

His interlocking designs, however, were born in the adolescence, "One day I took a very large sheet and began to draw everything that passed through my head, I saw stains become something. Then I realized that I was drawing what was happening to me Around today. My drawings are crazy stories of reality. " S.F.

In his photographs he is constantly searching for rhythm and time. His idea is that an image that returns these two concepts is always interesting.
