I started doing graffiti from a very young age, and that’s when I started developing my custom style in order to be recognised through my artworks, but eventually my interest in digital design grew very fast until it actually became my job. However, Graffiti are not the only thing that influenced my style. My musical influences, as well as being involved in the party scene, had a great impact on my current way to approach art. For example I often celebrate the smile as the best graphic icon that represents the whole world of clubs in the 90s.
I like to combine different styles with an unusual touch, so my pieces of art can be very recognisable but at the same time look fresh to the eye of the viewer. I see my laptop as my canvas on steroids. Technology gives many possibilities to find the proper tools to experiment and combine styles, even if I look at a lot of writers like real idols.
Even the best tool won’t replace the adrenalin to paint illegally and the magic between a spray.
In the last few years I’ve seen an underground movement of great digital artists growing very fast and I hope to consider myself part of it. It’s an exciting moment for digital art, and every artist should experiment and get involved to bring as much as possible to the alternative scene.
I don’t like most of the “classic graphic design”, the clean lines, the perfect vectors : to me doing design is to think and draw always out of the box breaking the rules.
For example a lot of artists of this alternative scene are also using the hateful font comic sans , giving interesting results.
” Art is simply everything or nothing.
We can see art everywhere around us or nothing at all.
(even a good and tasty neapolitan pizza is art)
Anyway I’m very careful to use this word because I admire artists of the past that maybe we won’t never have again on earth:
The best digital or street artist can not be comparable to a Caravaggio to me. “
