This wall sculpture is part of my serie Cobblestones, which pulls inspiration from ancient Roman cobblestone roads.
The 3D mosaic design is created by placing hundreds of parallelepiped squares of various sizes atop a MDF board.
Afterward, three coats of epoxy resin are used to coat the squares, welding and stiffening the piece.
The relief was then painted with a reactive iron varnish and chemically oxydized to obtain a patina with different hues of rust.
Shipping & Returns
Based in: Rome
After attending the High School of Art I moved onto European Institute of Design in Rome and graduated in illustration.
I find inspiration for my artworks through a close, attentive look of nature.
I focus on a particular organic texture, wood, bark, vegetable, animal or the shape of a rock and I bring it in the circumscripted space of an artwork.
Sometimes city landscape as well offers me a suggestion, such as the uneven cobblestones of the city I live in or the fascination of a peeling crackle wall.
I like playing with patina on metal finishes, since the oxydation is always unpredictable and unique and gives distinctiveness to each piece.
Through my website I collaborate with collectionists, art consultants and interior designers, creating bespoke pieces of art custom designed for each project.
