/>Who and/or what are some of your influences?

started to get interested in the field of street art since i saw Barry mc Gee’s
(Twist) work at the Venice Art Biennal in about 2001, it was great i had this
huge wall painted in red in front of me full of white drips and funny
carachters, i saw paintings on bottles, a painted van in the middle of an art
gallery so i definitely understood the big visual power which lays back this
forms of art.

What other artists do you most

when i started studying at an illustration
course ihere in milan i falled in love with Enki Bilal’s style of drawing, then
i knew Daniel Zezelji definitely one of my favourites for his use of light and
shadows, and for the mysterious, dreaming atmosphere he creates. In more
traditional art my favourites painters are Caravaggio and Gustav Klimt.

How would you describe your art to someone who could
not see it?

My topic now is the television, it doesn’t
matter to have a own contraddistintive style, i like to explore the different
possibilities of a same idea, it doesn’t matter the drawings is well or bad
done. Once i was more pessimistic so i designed ugly, bored faced trapped inside
of tv screens with a stencil style, now i’m trying to be more ironic, to make
laugh so i ‘m drawing this funny faced tv-dudes and other strange charachters
interacting with tvs.


/>What other talent would most like to have?

/>definitely music! i play the guitar but as the other gutar-player is
better than me he plays the solo-parts while i play hte rhythm

What do you fear the most?

/>to have to work as an advertising designer and to stay in front of a
computer screen for all my life!

What is your greatest

find happiness for future life.
