Born in the italian part of Switzerland in 1981 to a Czech father and a Czech and German mother. From Ticino to Paris. From hip hop to the theater. From the nights spent in a cardboard box to the TV advertisement. From valet parking in luxury hotels to the evening classes at the university. From versatile Mc Donald's crew to co-founder of a startup.
Self-taught, in 2018 Michele decided that he would work as a professional artist. Since then, his work has constantly be shown in exhibitions, art fairs and online galleries and has been picked by many Swiss or international art lovers who have added it to their private collections.
***About his work***
The subjects tackled by the artist are rather common topics. His challenge consists in giving them a touch of originality through his own interpretation. It is mainly about positive vitality, joy, awareness, letting go, love and empathy. A reflection of our contemporary world and a pinch of provocation.
Michele works on several layers to obtain a texture and a visual reminiscent of repainted walls, or like surfaces where something has been torn off.
The artist evokes a testimony of successive traces, where a new history is constantly rewritten. Time and human beings. Abandonment and re-birth. The courage to change. The humility of being in the present moment.
Leonardo Da Vinci said: "Art is never finished, only abandoned." But is there really anything ever finished? Isn't everything in movement, evolving, transforming, changing and passing by?
Thank you for your interest!
