  5. Hey folks, I’ve got a small batch of these prints ready to be shipped and hung to your favourite wall.

    The piece refers to St. Francis receiving the stigmata from Seraphim. The VI refers to Seraphim’s six wings. Laudato Sie comes in fact from St. Francis’ Canticle of The Sun.

    St. Francis is both patron of the city of San Francisco and Italy, my own country.

    Very limited edition featuring a hand-pulled-by-the-artist gold leaf finish, signed in each copy (and numbered of course).

    Printed by 1xRun in collaboration with Graffuturism to celebrate “A Major Minority”, group show at 1AM Gallery in San Francisco.

    A4 Format (8.3 x 11.7 in / 21 x 29,7 cm) Archival Pigment Print on 310gsm Fine Art Paper, featuring an embossed Graffuturism logo.

  11. As I turned 37 I spent a couple of days painting graffiti again with an old friend and crew mate I haven’t seen in a long time. It’s been fun to hang with him again.

  12. I’ve been invited, together with Martina Merlini, to an event that took place in my town Rimini at the beginning of July. The two curators transformed Villa Manzi, a dismissed hotel in front of the beach, in a 3-stories container of art, photography and music.

    Martina and I took over a room and filled it with a blend of our (so) different styles, turning an old and modest space with a view on the seaside to -let’s call it- a mess in three dimensions to surround the viewer.

    Martina’s part follows her recent pieces on wax, in which she works on a sort of ‘controlled chaos’ of forms, colors and elements, whilst my series of six subjects is based on transitions / solids and empties, as the thumb holds in sequence all the fingers.

    There’s some tricky detail on my sequence: ideally, the third hand would have a wrong gesture if we consider the rhythm of the sequence itself, but takes anyway its “empty space” thanks to the missing door and gives a balance to the picture.

    But the most interesting thing of the whole collaboration is for sure the blending of Martina’s dense, colorful abstract part with my minimal and essential figurative work, so I’d say there’s also a macro-transition from two opposites: chaos to order, color to b&w, abstract to figurative and so on.
