As a teen I started being fascinated (this passion still thrives me) by great artists of seascapes, so I intently watched and studied their charming representations.
For several years I have been trying to give concreteness to my own vision of art and tried to transfer my emotions onto canvas, using colors, shades and textures, enchanted atmospheres, either dreamt, conceived by my imagination or coming as a reminiscence of some remote memories.
Through my paintings I explore different techniques and feelings, shifting from the shiny “classical” nuances in my palette to the more intense, shady and intimate but never gloomy, nocturnal landscapes. Over the years, I extended my production adding to oil-painted canvas, some of which are huge, also watercolors, mixed with inks and polishes, where this time my subjects are abstract seabeds.
You can find some of my works on my Etsy online shop ‘italianmarinepainter’, where they are immediately available; alternatively, you will also be free to ask me a customized project for your house, your bureau, your office or your shop.
