He is currently CEO of "Food Painting ®" brand, exploring new ways of action between gastronomy and art live around the world.
"As an artist, I explore and filter reality through the creation of new ways of conceiving conceptual image using a hybrid configuration with pseudo-abstraction." As a person, I conceive life as an interaction of experience, the positive significance of the day and the momentum / intention / motivation to improve my relationships with everyone."
Beyond conventional representation, where reading and perception codes are wholly shared by artist and spectator, there is an unexplored territory that stretches between direct reading and the limits of understanding.
On the piece’s two-dimensional platform that search is undertaken: the re-interpretation of reality on the basis of volume sensations and iconological elements that arise from a single skin, a primitive substance: the stain.
That’s the genesis: the analysis of non-finite, of abstraction and texture in order to clear a thousand paths of dialogue with the observer that run and get lost without reaching any named place. Accomplishing those encounters and departures is the goal of creators of void. On that twinning I base the logic of my existence.
"Drawing is and will be the best tool of expression to translate ideas, daily observations and visual impacts, transfer on media whose validity dignifies the time of execution. Final work or does not allow us to explore endless possibilities of transgression in time real."
"The line as a graphic guide to reality, that being sketch is built on nothing (white); subconscious compositions (real or not) a world full of formal variations that make up new spaces / Volumetric items of enjoyment for our perception." Performance / Explanation: various technical resources and different forms of graphic expression in search of "FUR" about tondo format (paper plates) as a final product and exhibition object is used. Belonging to the "brand dishes 15/6" ® Food Painting "series.
Children between abstraction and visual maps without preset codes. Decorative time entertainment without rules in total freedom of expression. Illustrative tattoos without communication objective. Combinations and permutations perceptual exposed to social psychological environment: A "work in progress", a space, a format, an artist, a visual mapping or scanning of ideas or wills to customize live jazz alternative pure taste.
