Some of my paintings are portraits. It could be assumed that currently the portrait is an outdated genre given the ease of taking pictures and reproducing a subject in an instant. Nevertheless it is still valid precisely because whoever creates it (an artist, who is a painter or a photographer) has thought it and studied it carefully, so that the mixture between the way of seeing of the beholder and the represented subject is strongly present, as well as between what appears and what is not immediately available to the eye. Even in the portraits I have made for the people who asked for them to me, together with the representation of the exterior appearance, it come into play my way of perceiving the subject and the attempt to express his personality. From the stylistic point of view I maintain the character a little ‘pop that characterizes my work.
