Artist | Website
I create paintings by using Surrealist technique and combining strong foreground imagery with vibrant atmospheres. The history of painting weighs heavily on my decisions of palette and technique; my art is directly influenced by my Italian heritage and Italian art history. I tend to draw a lot of my reference material from topical issues that people face as a culture and as a species, using metaphors to portray the potential of a future that is the consequence of poor decisions today. Despite the plight that the natural world faces in my landscapes, the figure I reference tends to show an unshakable strength that is built upon the importance of always having a glimmer of hope. Exploring a safe and more forgiving existence is always and forever a possibility, even if it is found to be something intangible, internal or expressed through allegory.
