Piazzale Loreto 112x140cm, tecnica mista su carta 2012

Monday 6th April 2020 – Loreto Square Milano

In these days seeing empty cities is truly surreal and at the same time suggestive. Therefore, I fished out of my archive one of the very first works that I did just arrived in Milan in 2012. In this work on paper (112x140cm) Piazzale Loreto is depicted as seems to me today. I still remember well the feelings with which I painted it: I was very angry because I couldn’t understand how to portray the city of Milan. It was […]

A room of the next exhibition OPEN SPACE will be dedicated to these colorful skies that have conquered my way of seeing the sky […]

Monday 29th October 2018 – Skyline Milan

Before the rain, in these October’s days, we saw some really spectacular skies, even for the surreal climate that accompanied them. I could not resist looking at them and making them “work objects”. The movement of the fiery clouds of orange, violet and yellow creates a wave effect. As I painted it, I was surprised to see how this skyline had a touch of magic in its mix of powerful colors, which is what struck me in the skies seen […]
