I am an Italian-Argentine visual artist. Currently I live in Italy and I develop my artistic activity in drawing, painting, engraving, sculpture, digital art, installations, performances, and experimental theater.


I started from a very young age, in Buenos Aires, I turned to the plastic arts and participated in collective and individual exhibitions.

Formation

While my journey through visual art continued to develop in a self-taught way, I entered the Faculty of Psychology at the National University of Buenos Aires.
Later, after graduation, I presented at the National University of Mar del Plata, Argentina, my thesis "Artistic expression of personality", a psychological study on creative processes in great artists.

Portrait

From there I had two parallel paths opened, traced both by my passion for the art world and my deep interest into psychology. I started my professional activity as a psychotherapist and simultaneously I continued working in drawing and painting. 

Then I decided to deepen my artistic formation at the High School of Visual Arts at Mar del Plata, and then at the National University Institute of the Arts in Buenos Aires. When I finished my studies, for several years I participated in several artistic training workshops, learning from great artists such as Libero Badii, Hugo Irureta, and Luis Ramoneda.

Atelier

I also had training in theater: theatrical experimentation workshops with Gaston Pauls, clown techniques and improvisation, with the direction of Adrián Giampani, Mario Romeu, and others at Academia del Humor, Rosario and Mar del Plata, Argentina, and performance and scenography at Taller de Las Tablas in Madrid, Spain.

During the process of my artistic formation I was especially interested in the sculptural work of Constantin Brancusi, Tristan Tzara and Dadaism, the thought of Mircea Eliade and Emil Cioran, the theater of Eugene Ionesco, and this put me in contact with the University of Bucharest and the Romanian Cultural Foundation, obtaining scholarships.

About my work

I started my artistic career in figuration, leaning towards naturalism and surrealism, with a special taste for drawing and oil on canvas, in a self-taught way, within the framework of artistic movements of the '70s.

Some years later I was attracted by non-conventional techniques, non-figurative (or with a freer figuration) trends, enriched by mixed materials. I began to paint on new supports: wood, cardboard, metals, and using acrylics, paints and synthetic putties, including simple materials and objects from everyday life. This passage through abstraction and expressionism, across long periods, allowed me to include textures, sometimes monochrome, and others with colorist contrast and with the elaboration of several juxtaposed planes.
 

When I later returned to figuration, I did not loose contact with the diversity of materials, which is why I continue to work on varied supports and with mixed techniques. The various stages that have allowed me to see other aspects of artistic expression are not finished, because they have not been closed periods.

In such a way that I am currently working on several series simultaneously, which develop over time. Thus, the painting resembles a communication expressed in different languages, each of them always in process and trying to go a little beyond.

Another language that is very close to me is that related to performance, open interventions in space, with installations or public presentations. In them, I sometimes include aspects of the theatre.


The works presented here can be grouped according to the following thematic axes: "Itineraries", "Hypothesis", "Money", "Mountains under construction", "Maramures", "Nuragic", "Figuration; Mirror", "Other figurations". In general, in all my work, there is no documentary description of these themes, but rather what they have symbolically awakened in me and in my artistic search.
