Bio

I was born in Milan on 12 October 2001. Despite my young age, my relationship with art did not arise immediately, even though I have always drawn a lot and constantly; in fact, initially I started attending the linguistic high school but after only a year I realized that it was not the right path for me, so I decided to enroll in the artistic high school and today I am attending the second year at the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan.
For me, Art is first of all respect for something immense and eternal, it has always been there and always will be there in the history of man, it represents our identity and I feel so small towards it that I can do nothing but try to continue learning and knowing thanks to her, who will have to teach me for my whole life. Making art was not a choice, but rather a necessity: for me art is not just a means of transmitting a message or an emotion to a certain type of public, I still have an artistic conception for which what I do it for me and because it makes me feel good. My satisfaction is not so much in the final result of my work but in the work itself: what I cannot do without is precisely the moment of work, the energy and concentration that I employ in conceiving and creating a work which for me is a source of tranquility but also of self-understanding. Finally, there is nothing else in the world that makes me experience time like when I paint, draw or model something: time continues to flow normally but my little world slows down and sometimes almost stops. sometimes I go to the studio early in the morning and then suddenly I realize that it is dark, what seemed to me a few hours of work was actually a whole day spent without even noticing it; and this is the best gift that art could give me: giving me glimmers of eternity by slowing down my time, something that today, where everything runs and no one ever stops, is a privilege that I am grateful to have.
