Monday 12th June 2017 – Summer Evening

I paint the most attractive, relaxing and brightening things that I see. “Painting is a long effort of imitation of what is loved”, in these words by Renato Guttuso, a great artist of the 20th century, I find a summary of the message that I would like to share on this Monday. Imitating is to look calm, to be struck by nature, and then to enter into me what I have seen. For this reason, painting is a long-lasting effort […]

2017 Milano d'agosto 50x65cm olio su carta

Monday 6th August 2018 – August in Milan

Today is the first Monday of August, and I will talk about the artwork of this month in my 2018 calendar: August in Milan. This desert crossing, almost timeless, is an oil and pastel on paper , 50×65 cm. In the empty city, without traffic, it is even more evident the intertwining created by the tracks of the plots and by the wires that cross and go in opposite directions. I thank all those who bought the 2018 calendar and […]

Finally we left for the holidays! This is a glimpse of the town where I live, Canegrate, and there is a cycle path with alongside the wall of the cemetery. I really wanted to paint it because that piece of wall reminds me so much of the shape of my dock (as you can see in the painting of last Monday) and then there is a dynamism of very vivid lines and colors. It seems to me that a sense […]

2014 Alluciato 180x240cm olio su tela

Monday 19th November 2018 – Alluciato

In this painting of 2014 I portrayed the state road that leads from Palermo to Agrigento, in Sicily. It is a large painting 180x240cm, and is titled “Alluciato”, a Sicilian word meaning “dazzled by light”. I was almost blinded by the brightness of the Sicilian sun and I tried to make the intensity in the almost white reflections of light in the central part of the road before the curve. A flash of light as winter is coming! Happy monday […]
