Artist Statement
 

The paper approaches the urban theme from a contemporary vision, the work is realized with an unfocused and diffused manufacture that however, it reveals an aesthetics extracted from a fleeting reality. The recent pieces display a double narrative, which apparently say on the surface and what hidden is reserved as metaphor.

 

 

"The night is permissive - they told me - in it concur facts and things which are not allowed to the day. Like garbage, I thought.

It was then that I decided to reproposed its antiaesthetics, not to beautify its humpbacked destiny, rather to highlight the widths of its back. At the end - as always - the result shall not be my objective, but shall remain from that instant, some urban pieces, which if else they do not speak "solely" of the shame with which we manage our wastes, they evidence, at least, how we live with them.
