The artist decides to turn his notebook into a phone book. The author, in fact, starts from the idea that a phone book is more than a simple collection of numbers. Although new technologies render the practice of writing phone numbers in a dedicated book useless, the artist uses this habit as a starting point to bring the reflection to a deeper level, finding an important meaning behind this act that we could now define trivial. From his point of view, in fact, collecting numbers shows the willingness to contact the people, to start or to keep relationships with them, so it is an act of love and sharing.

I mainly work with charcoal and recently have been introduced to wood carving. I started doing art couple of years ago to express my feelings because talking about things was very difficult, therefore most of my work is personal and a reflection of my own state of mind.
Working with wood have been of a real interest for me lately, and I hope to be able develop in that area in the future.
