When the sun has gone I see you beautiful and haunting but cold.Like the blade of a knife, so sharp so sweet. Nobody knows your heart.
- Princess Mononoke -
A portrait of the delicate face of the full moon: pale, elegant, menacing. This piece goes back into my creative line, back to the ballerinas phase, but with mixing media.
If one is to ask oneself how often one's actions appropriate and butcher other's cultures, beliefs and rituals, the proper answer would probably be "always".
dull flame of desire
And through the downcast lashes I see the dull flame of desire
Inspired by the Björk's song with the same title, this piece explores that low flame burning deep, the desire that turns its host into a beast.
Queen of decadence
Those tiresome memories of yours
The taste of that dirty, scented honey too
I'll see if I can't make them all disappear for you

Probably you love her shoes and want to take a look here.
She's made of hair and bone and little teeth and things that I cannot speak
She comes on like a crippled plaything
Her spine is just a string
- Marilyn Manson -
Seeking a muse is something every romantic artists seeks. However, what to do it a muse, with a subject that is not only peril but certain perdition? This piece deals with the obsession of unattainable and insanity
You let go.
An allegory of that feeling of closing your eyes and taking a deep breath. Then the leap of faith.
Stabat Mater Dolorosa
Stabat mater dolorosa
Iuxta crucem lacrimosa
-Giovanni Battista Pergolesi-
Here I revisit one of the main pillars sustaining Christianity: The Virgin Mary. This is perhaps one of the most important and most underrated women in the history of western culture, a woman deprived of every piece of identity and stripped down to her womb and its fruit.
A dancer in the tradition of the chryselephantines so popular at the beginning of the 20th century. The major inspiration for this came from the Romanian sculptor Démetre Chiparus, a wonderfull artists that lacks of the mainstream acknowledgement Mucha's but not of his talent.
Rex tremendae maiestatis,
Qui salvandos salvas gratis:
Salva me, fons pietatis
-Wolfgang Amdeus Mozart-
Inspired by Mozart's Requiem, this piece explores the lineage of suffering and pain through the story of humanity. It is an ouroboros made of flesh, eating flesh and becoming flesh. Giving life and taking life.
Hydralisk Impaler Strain
One of my biggest guilty pleasures has always been Starcraft®. I have to admit that I will never be a pro player, but still I pay tribute to one of the greatest space operas of all times.
words to learn to hide
What good is art you can't wear?
Yes, this is a poncho. But it is more than that. It is wearable art. Break the rules, escape the museums, take the art to the streets. Wear art and carry that art installation everywhere with you.
words to learn to cry
Maybe they look familiar, especially if you have been following my work. These are the shoes the Queen of Decadence wears. Maybe you have seen these on a movie or a clip. Inspired by Aoi Kotsuhiroi.
