ABOUT ME

Behind My Art.

I grew up with the idea that after the 70s racism did not exist anymore, that women had equal rights and that the US was the place where dreams come true. However, one day during an exhibition, someone asked me why I was painting so many children of color, and suddenly I realized that for me they were simply children, but apparently it wasn’t the same for the rest of the world.

I think that in the last few years, instead of getting better, gender and race discrimination is instead more and more in our face and all over the news. Through my work I try to make people reflect, with a smile, on important issues, because I do not believe in criticism for its own sake, and not even in the satire that too often results in bad taste.

I believe in positive examples, I believe in good, in the smiles of the children who are our future, and I still believe in the American Dream; that’ s why the US is so predominant in my work. In my last collection I try to address the issues that are most important to me and through which I strive to make my ideas of a few years ago become a reality. Little by little.

ABOUT ME

That was then, this is now.

Some ask for an all-time recognisable style, my research asks above all for truth, clarity, effectiveness. I am not the one I was a few years ago, why should my art stand still instead?

So joyfully lost among colorful details of timeless Americana then, a colored canvas to have my toughts written out now.
