The impression of light

Shadows on the snow

I am an impressionist painter inspired by light, spectacular exhibitions of natural light awake in me strong emotions and that I want to capture. My way is oil painting and photography. Observing the scene live or studying photographic captures give me the opportunity to explore the richness of light and its subtle and evanescent effects. .
My paintings come to life form this marriage of emotions and technique, The wide and clear panoramas of the Apls, the mediterranean landscapes of Maremma captured en plain air to the sophisticated visions where I imagine and render the wonder of light reflected by the restless pattern of water or the sensual curves of a mermaid

A mermaid in the moonlight

I use traditional oil painting on canvas and I love also to explore the cutting edge of image technology being a a professional photographer and a digital artist. I use digital imaging tools for illustration commissions and to focus my visions creating sophisticated studies for my metaphysic and fantasy paintings.
I live and work in Italy, I'm the president of the artist association La Bottega dell’Arte where I teach oil painting. I have exhibited my works in several European countries in solo and group exhibitions . Internet is my favorite showcase and have given me worldwide popularity thanks to the collaboration with the main web galleries.






  • Biography

    I began painting at 10 years, and continued during my scientific studies, following an instinctive need to express myself, I absorbed eagerly every artistic teaching but at that time I mainly discovered graphic arts by myself trying many different techniques, enjoying particularly watercolours and oil painting.
    I graduated in aeronautical engineering at the Polytechnic of Milan in 1992 but artistic vocation could not be set aside, from 1993 to 1995 I attended at panting lessons of the “Bergognone” art school in Lodi. In these years learned the basic technique of drawing and painting and choose the oil painting as my favourite technique. I began to paint landscapes “en plein air”. In 1995 I come in touch with the “Circolo Ada Negri”, a group of Artists of Lodi and start to Exhibit my work with them.
    In 2003 I made my first solo exhibition in Milan at the historic gallery “Famiglia artisitca Milanese” In the following years I participate to several collective exhibition of this gallery.
    In 2006 I made my second personal exhibition at Milan and associated to the "GAFM - gruppo artisitico Forlanini Moluè" taking part in some prominent exhibitions: in 2006 at the aeronautics headquarters and in 2008 at the soccer stadium "San Siro" of Milan , in 2009 I was awarded among 350 artists. at the contest dedicated to “Giovanni Verga” organized with the city authority of Milan.
    In 2003 I joined the “Bottega dell’arte" a painter association based in Brianza, the area where I live, but active all over Italy and in France. In a few years, I became a prominent member of the association, accredited as master and started to teach oil painting at the evening school of the association
    With the “Bottega dell’Arte” I began a regular exhibition activity for example in 2006, 2010 and 2014 we exhibited by the famous Greek temples of Paestum (Salerno ) or in France in Roquebrune 2009 and Linas 2011
    In 2009 I made a personal exhibition in France on invitation of the Town of Mezieres en Brenne.In September 2010 I have been elected as president of the association and I still have that privilege.
    In October of 2013 I exhibited my works at the Louvre museum of Paris in a contemporary art event, in 2016 I contribute to a “Via Crucis” series for the church of Linas.
    In the same year I made a personal exhibition with over 40 paintings in an historic villa in Velate Brianza, the last big event has been an exhibition of some artist of the “Bottega dell’Arte” in Spain at Cacers in 2017.
    I publish constantly my works on internet that have given me worldwide renown, especially in the US where my artworks are very appreciated, last year an interior design studio have requested one of my large landscapes though the Saatchi web gallery where I made it available for sale.
    One of my mermaids was used for a coloured window in the Renaissance Hotel of Hamburg in Germany.
