What do you find most fascinating about your work?

Every time I approach a canvas / a composition is a new, more complex and complete feeling of satisfaction.

A few words about your favourite creation?

I am a big movies fan. Few months ago I have created a piece called “HAL 9000″, a homage to “2001 A space Odyssey “. This piece is the sum of what I like the most in my work and research. It’s a concentrate of abstraction and rigorousness. Wood and plexiglass are the main characters of this work.

My favourites artists are Giuseppe Uncini, Anselm Kiefer and Donald Judd. They are my greatest source of inspiration.
