acrylic and mixed media on canvas
12 x 24 in. (diptych)

“I have been an artist since the age of six. I lived and studied art and design in Venice, Italy, and continued my studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and with private teachers. My work is reminiscent of reality, but obfuscated while retaining some evanescent semblances to things dressed in opalescent coloration. Since I have always been a poet, I started to infiltrate some lines of my lyrics into my painting. The art I am sending–“Knowledge,” a diptych–features a fragment of one of my best poems. The entire poem is printed in back of the paintings.”
