I am an Italian artist born in Vicenza living in England. I moved to London in 2006 where due to space constrains, I relished my creativity on my laptop exploring different media such as Graphic Design and Web Design and worked for two web design companies and then freelanced as illustrator.
I am now living close to the sea in the south coast near Brighton. This part of England inspires me and influences my painting with the colours of the landscape. I mainly use oils because I love the translucence, sheen and thickness of the quality of the paint and it’s ability to be adjusted if I need a change it until it has dried. I work in different ways, sometime I apply colours straight from the tube, other times creating thin layers with brushes or knife palettes. I like playing with shapes and colors.
People use music, write or dance. I use paint as a medium to express what I treasure. It keeps me happy and alive. Every time I paint I pull things from different places of my mind, channelling them into a painting with the connections made between the eyes, mind and hands. One rule I made, is that I need to have fun while I paint, learn new techniques, grow and be inspired by other artists work. Right now I am inspired by painters such as Terry Frost, Roger Hilton and Peter Lanyton. Painting has to be a therapeutic experience too.
Each painting means something to me. They are a”real” piece of unique art, created from the heart. GSET is my favourite so far because I managed to control the colours, entirely inside shapes and lines.
