ABOUT

Born on October, 5th 1984 in Cagliari, Sardinia (Italy).

At a very young age he started to draw focusing solely on the black and white creations.

The monochrome has quickly became his natural habitat when he has encountred the world of Photography.

Thanks to some of his masters, especially Elliott Erwitt and Richard Kalvar, he promptly met what is now generally called “street photography”.

In 2014, he left Sardinia and moved to Bologna in the Italian mainland where he currently lives and works.

In 2017 he co-founds, with Diego BardoneBruno PanieriStefano Pia and Roberto Ramirez, a street photography collective named “The Strippers“.

His photographs have been published in numerous foreign and Italian magazines and they have been shown in many personal and collective exhibitions inside the main Sardinian art galleries, national galleries like Bologna, Venezia, San Marino, Padova, Salerno, Taranto and abroad in countries like France, Thailand, South Korea and Malta.
