Until now, I have made the universe the theme of my works. In particular, I want to highlight the universe as we don't see it.
In the end, my works doesn't carry a particular meaning, I rather think that it is more important that the viewer feels no limit in between the reality and the atmosphere of my works.
"What is behind?", this is the problematic that pushed me through years to create.
