Animals and hybrids are the axis on which my work revolves. My wish is to present animals to the viewer from a surrealist perspective. I try to represent in my hybrids a power and the animal beauty imperceptible in reality.
Unlike my contemporaries, interested in the study and reproduction of the human figure, I am interested in the animal majesty, the forms, the characteristics, the differences, of that great, diverse world that he created, so little respected over time. . My work is, then, a tribute to the animal kingdom and the possibility, with my work, to place them in a privileged place. I made the pieces in ink and paper, technique that helps me get a better perspective and greater appreciation, both in form and in details.
