2010 Islanda 150x250cm olio su tela

Monday 1st July 2019 – Iceland

I have just come back from this eight-day trip to Iceland, where I literally got drunk on the colors of this very special and wild nature. Thinking about this Monday, I fished out a work that I did in 2010 right on Iceland: then I had only started from a photo I had seen on a book and I braved myself creating these strong contrasts that seemed unrealistic.

Monday 8th July 2019 – On the road

Monday 5th August 2019 – Rimini dock

The summer colors of the sunset over the dock of Rimini are one of my favorite moments to paint. In front of that last slash of sunlight I remain silent and at the same time I desire to be able to make those colors explode in the canvas. I really like Rimini, it’s my homeland, so much of my work has passed through that port and I’m sure I’ll never stop painting it because it’s part of my life. You […]
