I live and work in Bologna, Italy. I have been going through several experiences for the past 20 years: music, writing, photographing, performing.Since 1990 I’m focused on making acrylics with the stencil technique on canvas, board or other medium. I’m very active in the Mail Art network and I’ve joined more than 800 projects so far followed by many group exhibits all over the world. I have done some personal exhibits in Bologna:
1990: “Scratches On The Walls”. A photographic journey, discovering the many different graffiti styles of Europe. 1993:“Cyclopean Power”. Graphic works presenting bicycles as the best way to move in the city. 1995: “Happy Birthday Cinema!”. A celebration of the cinema in a combination of acrylic and graphic collage. 1997:“Homage To Andy Warhol”. An intense use of graphics, stencils, copy art and collages to celebrate one of the most intriguing minds of Modern Arts, on the 10th anniversary of his death. In 1997 I was invited to join the exhibition “Symbols Of The 21st Century” held by the Museum of Post and Communication in Berlin. I completed my largest Mail Art piece (13x7ft) for it. On a smaller scale, some of my Mail Art artworks have become printed postcards: 1995: Rodolfo Valentino Centennial commissioned by the Municipality of Castellaneta, the birthplace of Valentino. 1997: Homage To Andy Warhol, commissioned by the Andy Warhol Museum in Medzilborciach (Slovakia). Some of my works appeared also on Printmaking Today (U.K.), winter 2000 and spring 2001 issues, on Somerset Studio (USA) sep/oct 2003, Paris Capitale (France) oct/nov 2003. Since 2002 I join Remember September a Mail Art project which is developed by Gail Ellspermann, Katona, NY to commemorate, on an annual basis, the tragic attacks on the United States on September 11, 2001. On 2006 I’ve joined some important projects as:
