Rome, Italy, 1979.
After completing his philosophy studies at the University of Sapienza in Rome, he set out to travel the world - Iceland, Germany, Russia and Greece.
He draws on his experiences for inspiration. He takes notes directly from nature and manipulates them in his studio. Nature plays a very important role in this artist’s work. Natural phenomena, the magnetism surrounding the Earth, electrical engineering and its relationship to human beings are key elements in his creative process. What the spectator feels and perceives from his work are fundamental in his compositions. The work interacts with the spectator, who is in turn absorbed by it.
Solo exhibitions of his work have been displayed at the Kunsthalle in Basel – 2007; the Palais de Tokyo in Paris – 2009; Wiener Secession, Vienna – 2009; Kunsthalle Fridericianum, Kassel – 2009; and the Museion, Bolzano – 2010. He has participated in group exhibits including the Venice Biennale - 2003 and 2005; Manifesta -2004; the Moscow Biennale – 2005; the Berlin Biennale – 2006; the Biennale of Sydney and After Nature New Museum in New York – 2008; and Chasing Napoleon - Palais de Tokyo in Paris - 2009. His work has been exhibited in the Hangar Bicocca in Milan.
