Wildlife was my first love and my inspiration. Our world is still full of beautiful creatures that live in pristine seas, rainforests and verdant mountains. There are few things in the world as nice as animals in their habitats. The reality, however, is that this generation will probably be the last one to know all this wonder.
As animal painter I try to capture the beauty of Nature through my brushstrokes. Maybe I chose to live of art also because in this way I can celebrate the biodiversity in my paintings, giving my contribution to the cause of Wildlife Conservation to counteract the destructive processes of the sixth mass extinction caused by humans.
I always loved the plenty of shapes and colors found in Nature. This variety represents my main source of inspiration. The animal kingdom especially has fascinated me since I was just a child. I firmly believe that artists, in their expressive and emotional journey, are bound to get back to their childish passions.
To reach the core of my idea, I add and remove elements through a sequence of drafts until I find myself satisfied. It’s a very long process, because I love the balance between spaces, and very often the result which is not as immediate in its symbolic content as I had imagined.
Mixing so seemingly conflicting elements gives my art a strong allegorical mood. The viewers foresee a meaning besides it, but this meaning can be difficult to understand. Really it’s the main appeal I find in my activity: I love to catch viewer’s eyes, developing doubts, receiving from my audience new keys of interpretation for my work.
I am also fascinated by Wildlife Art, a very popular genre of painting in Anglo-Saxon countries. Its purpose is to celebrate the beauty of wild nature and the deep relationship that unites all living beings. The representation of landscapes gave me recently the chance to release my creative mark and take new expressive paths.
It’s also possible to purchase numbered giclée prints of each artwork displayed, with bright and long lasting colors, printed on fine art paper with professional pigment inks. A faithful reproduction at a very low cost!
