Born in Venezia, based in Kyoto.

I like to compare myself to a sponge that absorbs, often unconsciously, bits and pieces from the vast amount of information with which we are surrounded every day, transforming and returning them as independent solid objects.

The results of this Input-Idea-Output creative process are diverse and distinctly “fresh” sculptures, constantly changing from the real to the ethereal, from the tragic to the ironic, and are both contemporary and timeless.

In my work I distil the concept of "Life" in order to celebrate it at its best. Honoring the virtues in life while downplaying the fears, I strive to give back at least a small part of those emotions that are increasingly eclipsed in favor of other more fleeting futile needs.

I believe in Art and in the benefits it brings to those who take part.

Thanks for watching.
