Born 1991 in Merate, Italy. He lives and works in Milan.

His work visually restores natural processes, set in technological and digital scenarios, where shape, color and matter take on a new meanings. The artworks “Fragments of contemporary landscapes” are blooming of an era in which man-environment relationship become the currently most relevant issue.

“I’ve always been fascinating by the biological complexity I find in nature.
A dense network of hidden and interconnected relations ”

He seeks a tension between detail and context, a complexity that leads audience to a continuous shift of perspective. Math, ecology, programming and chemistry are the media used to focus the subject of an artwork in order to inspect the process of its creation.
