Where did you grew up?
During the first part of my life I have been living in the region of Venice (Italy) where I absorbed the omnipresent beauty of the Renaissance and I pursued my artistic studies. After graduating at the Fine Art Academy of Venice I have worked and studied in Paris, Vancouver B.C. and Berlin. I acknowledge my experience abroad as the most important factor in the process of growing up.

What is your connection to Berlin?
Berlin is for me the city of freedom, where I find space to experiment new artistic paths and the people around me support my exploration.

The current project you are working on…
At the moment I am working simultaneously on many different projects, from t-shirt design to political murals and street art.

How would you describe your own style?
Aesthetic, rational, provocative. This is my personality translated in art, then the aspect of my style is very eclectic and can change to adapt to the current project.

What do you love most about your job?
I love to play with colors and images to touch people, communicating so much with no words. My current project of street art is amazing because it has brought me very close to the public and has allowed me to enjoy a direct feed back.

How does a normal day for you look like?
I wake up at 9 a.m. do sport and have breakfast. Around 11 a.m. I work on some project at my computer or paint. Lunch at 2 p.m. At 4 p.m.I start my street-art activity in some touristic place of Berlin and I finish around 10 p.m. At 11 I have a light dinner and go to bed at midnight.

Your three words for Berlin are…
Spontaneous, Cosmopolitan, Relaxed
