MONDAY



But if the light falls, my heart remains there, If there is a thought that turns it on is to look for Monday...

Lucio Dalla, Lunedì

Since May 2015 every Monday I publish on my website (and share on my social) one of my artwork or anything that struck me: a reading, a song, an unexpected meeting. Why on Monday? Because on Monday all starts again, for better or for worse, like it or not, but it's better that way! Up with Monday, and with the life that comes to you anyway.

    2021 Fili 21x29,7cm tecnica mista su carta

    Monday 12th April 2021 – Wires

    When I start painting a subject in which I discover something interesting, I feel the urge to work a lot on it. To experiment you have to accept to make mistakes, to take risks, then among the many failed things, something is born for which I say: here is something beautiful, to be saved! And that’s how I proceed when I work. In this small work on paper I was very struck by the contrast between the blue of the […]

    2021 Piazza 5 Giornate 30x30cm tecnica mista su carta

    Monday 5th April 2021 – Piazza Cinque Giornate

    In this painting on paper I depicted a memorable glimpse of Piazza Cinque Giornate in Milan. I prepared a series of cards, all placed close together, and I cast the color on them, creating these explosions. Once the color has dried, I mentioned the tree, the building and the presence of the tram on the right that crosses the square. Finally, with a wet wiper with black color I inserted the wires into the sky. That is always a very […]

    2021 Fili Milano 100x150cm tecnica mista su tela

    Monday 29th March 2021- Milano Wires

    As I told you last week, in this period I am working on the skies and wires of Milan. In this painting my attention is entirely focused on the breadth of the sky. To begin this work I started from the canvas on the ground, throwing several layers of different acrylic colors very diluted with water. While the color was still wet, I dried the color and gave body to the clouds with some paper and rags. Once the sky […]

    2021 Duomo 30x60cm olio su tela

    Monday 22nd March 2021 – Duomo

    This view of the Duomo, through the chromatic intensity of the colors, gives a lot of vitality to the square. The tram wires overlook the central part of the painting, and the white marble of the Duomo facade brings out the crackling colors of cadmium yellows, violets and intense Prussian blues. The verticality of the Madonnina, which stands out and dominates the scene, amazes me in this work. I really hope this is the last moment of lockdown, so that […]

    2021 Stazione centrale 50x60cm olio su tela

    Monday 15th March 2021 – Central Station

    In this painting I wanted to portray the Central Station from the top of a bridge, with the overpass bars in the foreground that open onto a broad view of the railway. There is a train stopped at the platform, it is waiting to complete the last stretch to access the station. In the foreground there are many directions, all very delineated, fast and opposite: the lines of the tracks that go towards the horizon, the train in the opposite […]

    2021 Fili 21x29,7cm tecnica mista su carta

    Monday 8th March 2021 – Tram Wires

    Last Thursday, the last day before the closure of schools in Lombardy, I did an art workshop at the primary schools of the Istituto Sacro Cuore in Milan. The title of the workshop was “Painting Milan… to discover it more”. First I told the children how I discovered Milan, showing them some of my paintings. The second, very intense moment was the performance, in which I showed how a work is born from scratch. In the last part of the […]

    2021 Milano fili 50x70cm carta

    Monday 1st March 2021 – Wires

    Last week I did a meeting with some students of eighth grade. The purpose was to tell them about my work and I received a loto of questions, like: “Was it difficult for you to choose high school? How was this passion born? Have you ever had doubts or difficult moments about this choice of life? What is the greatest gratification of your job?”. The first part of the meeting was a dialogue on these questions, then at a certain […]

    Lunedì 22 febbraio 2021 – Parking

    La preparazione della mostra Open Space nel 2019 era stato un momento molto significativo per il mio percorso artistico, perché venivo dall’esperienza di opere sul tema della linea d’orizzonte della riviera adriatica e mi chiedevo come potere continuare ed esplorare questo mondo della linea. Fu decisivo aprirmi al dialogo con Giuseppe Frangi, il curatore: gli feci vedere le opere della serie Parking e lui mi invitò a farne diversi, puntando solo sul colore e la linea. Il risultato di questo […]
