ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:
I come from Italy and I am 28 years old. I studied Illustration at the European Institute of Design (IED) in Milan, and after I moved to the multicultural and artistic city of Berlin, where I studied German, photography and I took a career-oriented training and coaching course. After that and thanks to my creativity, my attention to details and my ability to illustrate different themes, I had the possibility to work as an illustrator, photographer, model freelancer and at the same time in art galleries and fashion agencies.
I realized spontaneously many art exhibitions, both in Italy and in Berlin, and I won several International competitions, that have been published in Italy, Portugal, United States, Finland, Great Britain and Germany.
In 2017 I came back to Italy to study Digital Design & Communication in Vicenza, Italy.



ARTIST STATEMENT:
Art is my life: one of the oldest memories is my first drawing. I am a reserved person, and I've always devoted myself to art, because it allows me to express myself and to free what I have inside, without the use of the words, since I was a child. I have experienced all artistic techniques, but only at the European Institute of Design in Milan, where I studied, I found my way: there I discovered conceptual art, I fell in love and I decided it would be my way of working. I simply use some concepts and symbols to express something else, something deeper. Conceptual art is not easy to understand and that’s why I love it: it asks the reader to think, escape reality and discover unknown worlds. I am curious, I love to be versatile: now for example I'm studying Digital Design. My artworks are complex/complicated for another reason: the multiple use of technique and materials, a mix of drawing, painting, graphic and photography. I love doing the so-called "mixed media", describing both personal and social topics: I wish my art could open the mentality of the society, so that people will be more available to others, without racism and without bias. It is not utopia, but a way of life and a possible reality that I found in Berlin, where I lived for 4 years, and I would get everywhere. If Art is my first love, Berlin is my second.
