I'm in a bar, I'm sitting in front of this kid with black eyes and hair. He is arround 6 year old. At some point he start shacking like he is having a epileptic attack. Soon some crack appears on his cheeks. The cracks let place to antler that start to grow. I stay still and look blankly at him during that. At the end of the process his eyes are pitch black, the antler start to glow faintly, and blood run on his face. Strangely he is at peace, like he is showing his true nature finally.
This piece was exibit at the Salon des Beaux Arts in the Carrousel du Louvre in Paris for the 2016 session.
Born in Italy in 1986, I was always interested in drawing and painting. In an early age I attended the Art Institute of Lecce where I graduated in "Painting and Decorating". Then, driven by curiosity for arts and culture, I moved to Milan. There I attended L'Accademia di Belli Arti di Brera di Milano, (the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milan), where in 2010 I graduated in "Fine Arts". In Milan I exhibited my work in galleries and cultural organizations, I worked as an assistant in the art gallery "Pittura Italiana", and as assistant restorer in the restoration workshop "Conservatoio" of Manuela Turchetti. In 2011 I choose to move to Paris. After a period dedicated to learning French language, I enrolled at the Sorbonne University and graduate from a Master's degree in Plastic Arts in 2015. I also partecipated in the Exhibition of Fine Arts at the Carrousel Hall of Louvre Museum in decembre 2015 and decembre 2016.
