1.Tell us what you do and your beginnings.

When I was about twenty, I discovered art as an instrument to explore hidden parts of myself. A long period of experimentation began from that time. I made my first small sculpture at 10: an accumulation of toys on a marble slab unconsciously marked the beginning of something.

2.What are your favorite museums in the world? Why?

Right now I’m discovering a new museum universe, it is virtual reality museums that host digital art, a real immersive experience! This suggests a future that is less and less physical but more and more experiential. I am sure this will not replace traditional museums but I think it can be interesting to explore this new dimension.

3.How important are social networks in your business? And which platform do you prefer and why.

The use of social media is completely focused on my artistic production. I can say that my art has found its expression since 2017 when on Instagram I started constantly inviting users to share their feelings and reflections in the comments in my posts. In this way, their contribution becomes an extension of my work.
