When did you begin to work as an artist ?
I have spent a lot of my life drawing, I was already drawing when I was a kid, but I guess I became an artist when I quit my job and it was a tough decision.
Who is your favorite artist/inspiration ?
I'm very influenced by the music I listen to, by people and their problems, as well as movies and comics. I have a bunch of people that I admire like Ziraldo, Walt Disney, Will Eisner, Osgemeos, Twist, Seth, Uderzo, Moebius, Nássara and so many others, the list is big.
Where DID the idea of painting walls come from?
I have always admired how grafitti could get bigger spaces in the city, I got attracted to it. Tried once, never stopped.
What does the little bird we see on all the painting significate?
It's the reflex of the character, a living consciousness. each character has its own.
Painting walls is your «speciality», but do you have other ways of expresing your art ?
Besides painting, I do sing very well at karaoke!
What feelings do you want to rise in people's mind when they SEE your work in the street ?
I don't know, maybe activate something in their memory.
What are your artistic projects for the future?
I'm currently in Italy travelling and painting, I have a show in Turin in June and in September I'm going to the USA for another exhibition.
