Italian painter and sculptor, born in Turin (Italy). I currently live and work in France in Strasbourg; I have exhibited at major European contemporary art fairs and work to order. I studied Fine Art and Architecture. I worked for several years as an architect in the field of geographic information systems for land use planning. In parallel I pursued my artistic approach. My first exhibition was in 1970, I was 17 years old. In 1997 I moved to Strasbourg (France) and devoted myself entirely to my artistic work. Since then, my work has been shown in several contemporary art fair in Europe. I have always preferred working on and around the human subject. I consider myself an eclectic artist, I mix in my works, elements of classical and popular culture, often with ironic intention. As I always found myself fascinated by the art of comics, due to its direct and effective language, it influenced my work rather inconspicuously, and imposed itself on me. One day, as I contemplated what to do with a stone, the figure of a seemingly conventional man, most often evolving in an urban environment, thus began to emerge. It populated a dozen of my sculptures, be it in terracotta or in bronze, and then in painting. This figure is trivial, a neutral character, a certain ‘Mister Nobody’, undifferentiated and anonymous, who, wearing his hat, moves with a hurried step to an unknown destination, dragging with him a suitcase of mysterious contents. Those travellers, pressed or overwhelmed, almost always alone, become, in the paintings, decomposed rows or particles that move and collide. I make my own canvases: I sometimes add wires, paper, chalk or sand or wax to the background preparation to create something more interesting than a smooth surface. My works do not necessarily require a frame. The edges are well groomed: nails and braces are on the back.
