Biography

Born in Turin (Italy), lives and works in London, UK.
I attended Art School at the Albertina Academy of Fine Arts in Torino and at Polytechnic University of Valencia. My art sensibility was noticed by the Academy, that offered me a teaching position a few years after my graduation. Later I became a conservator of contemporary art, establishing the Triennale Museum laboratory in Milan, where I had the opportunity to meet and collaborate with internationally known artists and designers. My eclectic inspiration led me to design ironic objects, presented at a personal exhibition supervised by Philippe Daverio at Fuori Salone del Mobile 2011 in Milan. My accomplishments were covered by some major art journals. In 2014 I moved to London, where I have been active in the realm of luxury, crafting original and highly sophisticated artwork. For the past decade I have been working as a freelance conservator of contemporary art, working in my private studio, and attracting both public and private collectors. This experience had fostered my interest for materials and inspired my creative personal technique of painting. Today I dedicate myself to creating works of arts that convey the elegance, purity and natural beauty of my full search path.
