“For me, the creative process is an opportunity for endless research when inspiration, ideas, life experiences are transformed into a work and transform also myself.”
Who are you? What do you do?

Your style in 3 words?
Abstract Color Textures
Your weakness? Your strength?
Impatience, obsession with any of ideas so much that I forget about everything else, it is difficult for me to find a balance and I can forget to sleep or eat. It’s not right, but it helps to create, so this is one of my strength too.
What makes you different?
Due to the fact that I paint a lot with my hands, fingerprints get erased. I can find inspiration in everything: in the way a passer-by sneezed in the street, in the texture of a rubber hose, in the smell of welding.
When did you decide to become an artist?
When I was 3 years old.
What do you find most fascinating about your work?
For me, the creative process is an opportunity for endless research when inspiration, ideas, life experiences are transformed into a work and transform also myself. It’s always a new experience, it’s pure magic and freedom.

A new project coming up or an idea you want to work on?
I want to make a series of canvases of large format and draw on the walls in the street. I’m interested in the dialogue between the city and the workshop, between the white canvas and the garbage can, between personal and public.
