Like most of my arts, this drawing comes from one of my dreams (or nightmare).In a pitch black night I remember a volcano in full eruption and a woman standing near to me. The lava came and this woman, petrified by fear, was trapped by the lava end her screams of pain lasted for a few moments.
Soon the screams became silence, her body melted and was rapidly transformed into a fossil.

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. ( Salon des Beaux Arts :" Currently I am pursuing my artistic research in Paris until further developments.
