This original wall relief pulls inspiration from the bark of trees.
The texture is molded by hand with cellulose on a wood board and,
when completely dry, it has been covered by 2 coats of resin.
I painted afterwards the whole surface with a reactive copper varnish and created with chemicals a gradient of verdigris patina.
I stopped the oxidation with a sealer and used a matt final varnish in order to protect the relief not altering the natural look of copper patina.
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.
