About

Airone: self portrait - Year 1839 - 60x51 oil on canvasI started doin graffiti in the streets of Milano in 1989. I’ve painted some good and some bad ones, I never stopped. Would you call it art? That’s a so boring discussion… you are here ’cause of my dirty hands, so sit down, relax and enjoy the tour.

About this website: my life as annoying, minor social problem is shown in the photos I collected for this site (dont believe the hype: I’ve had a very sweet childhood. Nope, my parents never broke-up…). My old website has been running on Pixelpost for years, but after the app has been dismissed in 2009, I thinked of a total renewal and took it offline. In late 2012 I published this new one.
I started again all the work I already have made in years from the very beginning, with in mind the goal to publish better, larger, long-lasting images always together with some words: ’cause the tales I heard from my masters when I started painting were the reason that actually got me started. Many other images have been lost: I was too young and lazy to always carry a photocamera: mobile phones and digital cameras were yet to come, you know. Documenting was just the last step, first goal was havin’ fun: that’s the only reason I’m still around doin things old man like me should not do.

What more can I say? I’m a proud member of the Tribe Hardcore Pushers crew and The Nasty Boys family.
Through the years I kept expressing myself in the urban jungle, although in different ways and with different media: streets remain my main inspiration. Nowadays I work as an artist and I run a graphic design & communication company. I like rhubarb candies (sounds hipster, I know) and I try to give to my son a valuable education, like recognizing best tags in town… style matters! And I love kidding jealous people, so stay away you haters and biters.
