Artist Statement

I would like to use few keywords to introduce my work:

silence-questions-white-doubts-sight-relationship-faces

I find inspiration simply in what is around me, and since I have always been living in big cities, to be more specific, I think I should say I am interested in what people feels when immerse in a chaotic and noisy environment.

I like to associate my drawings with silence, like a pause in the running of the daily routine.

And when we pause questions come up, as well as doubts and dreams.

I like the feeling of “interrogation” that sometimes two strangers share when they cross each others in the streets or in the subway. I feel like the city always leaves us with so many open questions, that we carry with us in the privacy of our apartments.

The last series of drawings I have done is “WHAT?” and I did it after a trip to New York this past summer.

I live in Paris, but I grew up in Milan, and I like travelling, and meeting people, and at the end of the day no matter were we are we all seems to be tormented by the same questions.
