Received my print today and it's PERFECT!! It took 17 days which is pretty great shipping from Europe to US. The packaging was excellent and the paper quality is thick and gorgeous. I LOVE it!!! (The only thing to note is that it was trimmed in black, but the image in ad was trimmed in white)

First let me say that the shop owner contacted me the moment I made my purchase and throughout shipping, which I greatly appreciated. When it arrived I became overly emotional because of how absolutely beautiful and detailed his work was. This is also the first real piece of art I've ever owned and couldn't be happier to hang in my home. THANK YOU!!
Art is a therapy.
They say creativity is something you can inherit from your family, and I guess I did. Since I was a child I always had the tendency to create, draw, build, as my uncles used to do; and I still have this deep desire to keep on creating.
Poverty is definetively something you inherit from your family, and I guess I did. I never considered art as a way of getting out of poverty, but still, I was creating with what I had: drawing with one centimeter long pencils, building toys with pieces I collected from some garbage dump.
Migrating to Italy in 1992 gave me a chance to make of my life something better, and, again, I guess I did. I lived here and there sketching stories on a piece of paper or in my head, with no regard to the technique, but just to the story within the pencil lines. When I thought that those pencil lines and the technique were decent enough to be shared, I started keeping my works for myself, or giving them to friends, and then selling them.
I became an Engineer along the way (I don't know how), learned some languages, and kept drawing and writing, finding out that the best things I was given in life come from my family: creativity and poverty. I am blessed.
Most of the drawings I am selling here have a story hidden, blurred, blended on the paper. I will keep producing and posting other works. I hope you enjoy them.
