Spontaneous Sketches

Nothing is better than spontaneous drawing to allow new stories coming to life.

On my way to painting, I open my sketchbook and give it a go. It just happens, one image after the next. Some good, some average, some.. not.

Niente batte il disegnare spontaneamente, per dar vita a nuove storie.

Prima di mettermi a dipingere, apro il mio quaderno e mi butto. Succede, un’immagine dopo l’altra.  Qualcuna buona, altre cosí cosí, altre… no.

One Seagull

I always think of you when I see a lone seagull – is this one Jonathan Livingston? I wonder – and the day you gave me that little book.

And you said:

“… because being different doesn’t mean being wrong.”

Ti penso sempre quando vedo un gabbiano da solo – sarà questo Jonathan Livingston? penso – ed il giorno mi desti quel libricino.

E dicesti:

“… perché essere diverso non vuol dire essere sbagliato.”

Finding Next Story

Paintings come as a feeling first. This one, before I understand it, responds to no words, or colours.

Only when drawing I discover the story I was meant to tell … and like in a mirror, I see details I didn’t expect.

I quadri vengono prima di tutto come una sensazione. Questa, prima di capirla, non risponde a nessuna parola o colore.

Solo quando disegno, scopro la storia che dovevo raccontare … e come in uno specchio, vedo dettagli che non mi aspettavo.

Charcoal and Nudes

Exploring my love for the body language I approach it once again with one of my favourite mediums.

Charcoal allows me to search, push and caress.

The old marks impossible to erase, like the scars that make us who we are.

10 Short Stories

In an old drawer I found some writing that I intended for children even before my beautiful ones were born. Thanks to digital possibilities, finally they have been edited and published in an e-book. I also enjoyed illustrating them with quick and expressive sketches.
