For me drawing and painting mean “communicate” and I need to confront with artists coming from more or less far cultures. Since I was a child I travel and live in different places and I like to live in a new place, I like to feel like a foreigner.
I believe in the power of the people to change the world and my aim is to do an art that reinforces in people the confidence that our actions can make a difference.
The voyages influence my work and my conception of inhabitants of the world. I believe in people and in their need to connect each other, through nets. The city is my favorite net. Most of the time I depict what I call “life-lines”: the view from the bus I take almost every week going from my parents’ house on the mountain to the city of Naples. During this short trips I see the lines people drew building their houses and relationships and lives and they are the same all over the world and they are different from town to town. And this is the mystery I’m trying to solve.
