WHAT’S YOUR BACKGROUND?

I live in the province of Brescia but almost always work in Milan. I mainly deal with creative direction and consultancy for brands in the clothing sector. Finally, during the first lockdown I had the opportunity to realise a passion I had had for some time, that for images, their chromatic harmony and the concepts they bring with them. I consider myself a shy person, imaginative yet determined, ambitious and private, rational. I have always been aware that I live in a state of obvious contradictions that nevertheless make perfect sense to me. I am often simultaneously the most dreamy idealist and the most bitter cynic, and I am prone to building and deconstructing an idea to keep up with my creativity and logic at the same time. Collages have allowed me to decline my persona into something physical and concrete.

WHAT ARE YOUR SOURCES OF INSPIRATION?

I have always had a natural thirst for knowledge and curiosity. Everything and nothing fascinates me, so I save content in my archive, let my creative flow be instantly involved and then set them aside.

Weeks later I open them up again and discover completely new details (which is why I watch the same film several times or read the same article several times). At first I created personalised collages, inspired by this or that person or the idea I had of them. It was a difficult but constructive creative exercise. Now my hand simply goes off on its own, like when you know a road so well that the car follows the curves and it’s a pleasure to drive.
