An inspiring journey that lasts as long as a dream and takes us down an intriguing path to discover one of the finest and most virtuoso Masters of Contemporary Drawing, whose technique and symbolism, whilst firmly bound to the present, reconnects to the tradition of the Italian Renaissance School of Leonardesque and Correggesque origins.

An evocative poetics that accompanies us all the way to the boundary between myth and reality, showing us the threatening yet fascinating Denti di Sant’Apollonia (“Teeth of Saint Apollonia”) turning into constellations swallowed up by the darkness of the graphite, or corporal anatomies that unveil their symbolic references behind a crude appearance.

Finally, he brings us into contact with recollections of a mysterious Colombian night through the flowing lines of a ball-point pen, or Siamese images and ink spots that seal the happy encounter between the pureness of the silk paper and the sfumato of classic origins.
