The work I do is not confined just to paintings, but also to collage, photography and drawings using different techniques and sculptures that are united with my poems which inspire them, creating a unitary vision of my concept of identity.

It is an art which continually seeks the meaning of the personal identity which summons emotion from the spectator whilst challenging him intellectually. The relationship with the audience is always taken into consideration and is the subject of frequent reflection.

When I bring together images from newspapers and old photos I create an image of the individual and pop culture, which is to say, the mentality of those who surround us, and their habits.

With a wide brushstroke, he makes a new human race appear. Never before seen and unnerving, it is related to teddy bears, ragdolls and plastic dolls.Gloria Vallese, catalogue to Atelier Aperti, 2006
