In the '90s he devoted himself to the pictorial reworking of textile motifs, starting a cycle that would last more than 15 years. Re-elaborated as signs of writing, fragments of things and of natural, vegetal and even heraldic presences, they invade pictorial surfaces, canvases, papers and fabrics, even objects, making precious artist's books, small theaters, paper clothes, shoes, ties, liturgical vestments, altar frontals and chasubles, in a long and passionate research of a plot, of a story first interrupted and then continued in a thousand different versions.

 

Born in Rome, lives in Velletri (RM). His artistic research has been carried out in cycles ranging from informal registers of the '60s to the written painting and modular geometries of the following twenty years.
