Inspired by his huge collection of comics, music videos, movies and photography books, and above all, colour, he creates digital artworks highly reminiscent of his Italian heritage.For my series I've searched inspiration random, there’s no a single thing I like to focus on. I often like to start from a single object that I saw and working around it to create a world from nothing.What I think keeps together all my illustration is surrealism. It’s really important in my opinion. It gives that strange mood that let you deeply upset, in a good way, something that you keep carrying with you for a long time. I like realism, as you can see, one of my favourite painter is Edward Hopper, but I like even more contaminate realism with a touch of surreal.
