Artist and engineer, born in Italy in 1990 and now based in New Haven, USA.
His passion for art started when he first discovered photography in 2011.
In 2017, he felt the need to go beyond the window of reality offered by photography and started painting, influenced by abstract expressionism and inspired by artists such as Jackson Pollock, Willem de Kooning, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Kazuo Shiraga, and Gerhard Richter.
As a self taught painter, trough experimentation, he found his own stylistic expression, his aesthetic is constantly evolving. His work is subdivided in series, each one represents a different phase in his life and has a different painting style.
Painting is not his only activity; in fact, he is currently pursuing a PhD in EE at Yale University.
He is interested in an intuitive and emotional style of painting that allows randomness to enter the process; this concept is opposed to the engineering work, where everything ideally is predictable.
He is interested in technology, the relationship between technology and humans and artificial intelligence. He is also fascinated by the fabrication process of system and devices, where during the engineering phase, a lot of errors and problems will be encountered. He likes to decontextualize the errors and propose them as art.
He is also interested in painting as a pure form of abstraction, as a representation of emotions and personality, and how they change through time, as the artist goes through different events and experiences in his life.
I started painting in 2017 because I was felling the necessity to do something that goes beyond photography. Something that is not a window on reality but rather a window on my inner self. I like to build a painting along the way and to stop when I fell that it is done. My process is intuitive and emotional.
