Words from the artist:
Since 2010, art exhibitions and fairs have come one after another in Europe.
I have been given great recognitions: in 2014, the Raffaello Sanzio Award (Italy); in 2016, the Arts-Sciences-Lettres bronze medal (France) and the Beato Angelico Award (Italy).
These awards have sat me in my position as an artist, but have also made me question the desired evolution of my work and my artistic commitments.
My questions were answered when I was asked to participate in the charity auction to benefit the victims of the July 14th terrorist attack in Nice. For a moment, I had the feeling of being useful, beyond any artistic creation, or at least the feeling that my pictorial world could provide an even so minimal support.
I now wish that my work and artistic commitment go towards an action in favor of people in need.
And my commitment in 2017 is to seek out organizations and associations that, through art exhibitions, collect donations to help research, health, humanitarian aid.
I would like to thank the members of the Lions Club, who have heard my call and allowed me to participate in the exhibition “A La Croisée des arts”.
