I use paper cutting as a way to create intricate portraits and transform them into new meticulous organic forms.

Since the first time my father took me to a museum I have been fascinated by art and in particular by the human figure. I remember looking at some of DaVinci’s sketches and being mesmerized by the beauty and the attention to details in such small works. When I moved to London from Italy in 1995 I started drawing homeless people on the street. Their faces carried the signs of a harsh life and for the first time in my career I started to focus on trying to capture the pure essence of my subjects through my art.

Since then I have beenmainly working on portraits that aim to represent something beyond the person’s outer image and to look at the person’s inner self.
