About the Artist
I am a practicing printmaker artist, my favourite media are etching, lithography and woodcut techniques.
I graduated in painting and drawing with highest honours from the Accademia di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy(2007). I then continued my studies at the Bisonte International School of Graphic Arts, where I solidified my passion for etching and engraving, earning an MA as a master printmaker. I had my first solo exhibition at Florence’s Natural History Museum and I sat on the jury in several shows and group exhibitions. My prints can be found in many Italian and foreign collections. In 2011, I moved to London and I am currently workshop teacher and keyholder at Thames Barrier Print Studio, SE18, a shared atelier that hosts many international artists.
I think of myself as “Jungian neo-surrealist”, my style is characterized by a background of arcane symbolism. I make my prints obsessive in their technical details. Printmaking allows me to disclose a dense imagery of darkness and light. My creatures, ferocious at first, often reveal themselves to be simply pathetic or powerless, offering a darkly humorous view of our inner lives.
