Aqua Aura is a project born in Milan in 2009. After the studies at the Art High School of Bergamo, the artist took a university degree in painting at the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera, with a thesis on: “Anselm Kiefer. The Other Baroque: An Overview On The Contemporary German Expressionism”. Spinning all over the world, Aqua Aura personal training continues with voyages inside museums, in research laboratories and across huge spaces of natural environment. His range of studies spans from the field of astrophysics, to particle physics, bio-genetics, philosophy and psychology of perception. In the last years the artist switches his language towards photography and digital-art. He works between Milan and Akureyri (Iceland) with his Norwegian Forest cat. Recently, he showed in many institutions, galleries and museums at international level: such as Turin, Istanbul, Barcelona, Maastricht, Finland and Slovenia. The developments of his most recent works are leading him towards the territories of video art realizing short films and docufilms.
