Digital art, through a wide range of techniques and tools provided by technology, is gaining more and more appreciation, like art forms historically established, with which, indeed, seems to be in direct competition. The main reason lies in the fact that digital art is the result of a re-constructive and compositional work by the artist.

It is this work, the artist intervention, his meditation and participation, to give a distinct identity to the photographic image, which also takes account of the relationship between the viewer (the photographer / digital artist), who’s being watched (the portrayed subject) and the future’s public eye.

If we did not consider the  m a k  i n g  by the digital artist, then the result for example in a self portrait photography would be always only the one to exchange oneself with any other; in a portrait to exchange a person with any other; in a still life to exchange an object with any other; in a landscape photography to exchange a place with any other, and so on, in a spiral of a goal towards identity never reached, still however to achieve. 

As essentially a portrait painter, as figurative artist, in this age of existence and appear as an image, in the epoch of ‘self-mirroring’, I am attracted by digital art’s thousands of possibilities, because I find it modern and traditional at the same time; able, in spite of technology and his fast fruition and easiness of utilization, to preserve the mystery, the secret and thus to put a protective band around a Person, a Name, a Thing, a Place…

My digital paintings’ starting point are my own pictures or those of whom are commissioning me a work. The pictures I work are not professional, rather characterized by technical defects and a poor quality, elements which give me the challenge to experiment new colours’ architectures and new compositions.

Depending on the image I do relate to I carry out the digital work in a more or less  painted, graphic or photographic way, always trying to realize wonderful metamorphosis within the original pictures‘ boundaries.
