About

I was born in Rome in 1974, I’m a visual artist and graphic designer.

I graduated in Graphic Design and Applied Art at the Istituto Statale d’Arte of Rome in 1993.

In 1996, after attending the Accademia di Belle Arti of Rome for three years, I stopped following school to continue my studies as an autodidact, especially as a cartoonist and graphic designer.

During the ’90s the hip-hop culture established a connection with most of the younger creative generations of Rome, who would express themselves trough rap music, break-dance, and graffiti, this cultural movement involved me in the practice of aerosol art, better known as graffiti writing.

The history of graffiti in Rome was then celebrated with the international book Just Push The Button – Writing Metropolitano, published in 2002 by Stampa Alternativa – Nuovi Equilibri, of which I am the author.

In 2000, the creative ideas of a group of friends has given rise to the Why Style collective of which I am one of the founders, the group aims to filter the urban subcultures into forms of art, exploring the concrete realities and phantasmagoria of contemporary urban life. Since then the Why Style collective participated in numerous international exhibitions, representing one of the first collaborative realities of the Italian artistic panorama.

In 2004 I moved to Amsterdam, where I currently live and work, my activity has been developed in two directions: art and graphic design, which often merge to form a whole, in particular my work includes; illustration, painting, installation and editorial design.
