I was born and currently based in the small town of Nuoro. A town rounded by mounains, in a Region (Sardinia), rounded itself by the sea... In this contest, I've been shaped (il mio carattere). I call myself lucky for I'm selftaught and totally Art-ignorant painter. Perhaps it makes me purer in Art expression. I was an architect of 39 when I took the courage of leaving everything for my true love: Art painting. I keep thinking that Art must mature properly in our inner self, before any exhibition. The second step lies in removing the obstacles on the artistic flow who is part of us since we were born. I'm still experiencing with the acrylic medium. I don't paint what I see, but what I live or lived, even though indirectly. I let things emerge uncounsciously and spontenously. I ecxcape from the chats around the Art. I try to grow up in my loneliness and don't care about congratulations for my work. I was born in Nuoro, a small town where I still live. It is a town surrounded by mountains in Sardinia, which is itself surrounded by the sea. This is the world that has shaped me. I sometimes think I am lucky that I am a self-taught painter, and that I know little about modern art. Perhaps it makes my expression purer. I was a 39 year old architect, when I finally decided to leave everything for my true love – painting. I keep thinking that art must mature properly inside oneself, before having exhibitions. Then one must remove any obstacles to the artistic flow which is a part of us since birth. I'm still experimenting with the acrylic medium. I don't paint what I see, but what I live or lived, even if it is indirect. I let things emerge unconsciously and spontaneously. I avoid the conversations that surround art. I try to grow alone, and to not listen to acclaim for my work.
