Biography

Painter Franco Italian I live and created my work in Italy and the island of Reunion, it is an art ‘Outsider Singular’. I have been painting since the age of sixteen, I did not have any academic training. For me to paint is a path of Soul, a spiritual, visceral determination that gives full meaning to my being. This inner necessity that defines me.

Artist Statement

This is an outsider-singular art
My artistic approach concerns the states of Consciousness and Heart greatly intertwined, without any analysis nor control over it, and above all break them up while processing my work, from the making of the frame to the brush last rubbing on the canvas.

Even if my canvas got final titles, I can’t help naming each one of the fragments. They are linked together by the ribbons of life: my pink and turquoise lines.

I let my thoughts dissected themselves. I give freedom to my dreams, intuitions, perceptions and visions (I don’t censor myself). My inspiration is the reflection of my psyche. My art is a painting of the Soul, a quantum poem that occurs by analogy. My paintings come from outside the space-time. It is not academic, I am not seeking for aesthetically pleasing: I am seeking for the Intensity. I remain outside the standard norm. I am thrilling within my inner Worlds.

My canvases are narrative, emotional, intuitive.

When I paint I speak to the lost beings, as well as the loved ones and myself. I represent realities as I feel it through my intuitions, and as I live it by experiencing my mind as multidimensional. During some of my astral journeys, I sometimes let images infiltrating directly or indirectly my consciousness. I essentially express my dreams in a symbolic form,
hence the use of archetypes in my work.

I am trying to link deeply my paintings to the psychic world and the physical world. My thought process linked to the synchronous events takes on its full meaning when I experience them and when I discover a signification.
