2021 Fili II 80x120cm tecnica mista su tela

Monday 10th May 2021 – Tram wires

When I paint the sky, I don’t think so much about a specific moment: I physically throw myself into the painting, starting from the background. This working method, looking then at the final result, surprised me, because if I think too much about a precise image I get distracted and I’m too formal.

Monday 19th April 2021 – Duomo

Last week I went to a client’s home to deliver one of my artworks on the Duomo. While I was setting up the work, we discussed the fact that whoever loves Milan, immediately think to the Duomo, to the Madonnina. Yes, there are also other symbolic places I would say “untouchable” such as Sant’Ambrogio, the San Siro stadium for sportsmen, Unicredit and the whole area of ​​Porta Garibaldi with the Isola district. But why the Duomo? I try to give […]
