Painted Pieces Exhibition 

Hello everyone 

I am so excited to show you some pictures of my art Chess Set AUTUNNO, currently on show at The World Chess Hall Of Fame in St. Louis USA as part of Purling London solo exhibition  “Painted Pieces ” 

The exhibition includes 20 very talented  contemporary Artists and is open until September 16th 2018.



Sneaky preview of Estate 

Hello everyone 

I am currently working on my 5th Art CessSet collaboration with the awesome Purling London.

The new set is called Estate “Summer”

Inspired by Summer ‘s holidays, the heat, Carosels…

To achieve the sense of warm I purposely opted for hot yellow and deep purple as back ground colours adding blue and gold glitter and red reflecting stones, a reminder of those hot summer ‘s days followed by endlessly sweaty summer’s nights.



Flux Exhibition Chealsea Royal College Of Arts 

Hi everyone 

I had an amazing time at Flux Exhibition where I was drawing live in front of a packed audience, so many people engaged with me, taking photos and filming while I was drawing.

The choice of Artworks on display was incredible, so much talent out there !

Here are some photos of the opening night, 




Hello there, it has been a while since my last blog post…

…so much has happened since : for example, a brand new  Art collaboration with the amazing Artist Lindsey Bex, a short break to see my family in Sicily and now a 3rd collaboration with Company PURLING LONDON  Purling London

I was chosen among other Artists to create an Art Chess Set to be displayed on their solo show in April 2018 in St. Louis, Missouri, USA at the Worldchess  therefore you can imagine my  level of excitement …. 

I decided to create something Classy and Royal, I went from the classic black and white with the addition of hand cut copper leaf, once again my inspiration came from the season that I was born in : Autumn ! 

Here is my “AUTUNNO ”

Dear all

Stars exhibition , only started a couple of days ago and already has captivated the public imagination, so many of you came to the MEET THE ARTISTS event on the opening day.

I would like also to say thank you to our friends who came to see the show and  for their amazing support !

For the past week I have been busy designing  a poster for Argosy Players next theatre production : THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES. 

I am very happy with the finished product and happier to know that they love it too !

One happy Artist and one happy Theatre Group….

Here some images, enjoy !



Freda Kahlo’s portrait is finally here , a few details need to be worked on but most of the work is done. 

It’s been a labour of love, taking over 3 months to complete, on and off , working with collage, biro pen, inks, acrylic, pastels, markers and ” jewels ” 

This is my humble tribute to a special and inspiring  human being  !



I finally delivered a new commissioned portrait today. 

Anita’s portrait is a black biro pen and ink drawing, A3 size.

I am so pleased to say that she absolutely loved it !!!



I have finally completed a commissioned portrait. Very pleased with the final results, one happy man : me  !

Soon it will fly to its new home : Italy .

MI AMO DA SOLA , the video

After a couple of months since my last post , here I am again….

I would like to share with you  the new video  : MI AMO DA SOLA.

Quite a labour of love, taking over a month to complete , mainly drawn in pencil with the add of ink, pastel and gold leaf.

The sound track  chosen for the video is  : HEY NOW by the amazing LODON GRAMMAR.

Enjoy ….



Once again it was lovely meeting my fans at the Uxbridge library yesterday 10th October 2015.

This time I was drawing live on a new piece called MI AMO DA SOLA   

(I love alone) mainly a pencil and charcoal drawing but with a view to add colour….

I was delighted to chat and inspire the public who came to see me, loved chatting with talented children and their parents…. I was surprised by the artistic  focus and knowledge about drawing and shading techniques of an 8 years old boy who came with his mother to see me drawing…

I would like to  thank the public who attended my event , people and friends who helped to make it happen….

Thanks to Zoe, the library staff, Anita, Susan, Keith, Tim, and in particular Darrin Reeves whom in both occasions photographically recorded the MEET THE ARTIST event !

Thank you all 






What an incredible buzz yesterday afternoon at the Uxbridge Library….

To start with, I admit that I was a bit nervous about thinking of standing in front of my easel, trying to look relaxed and carry on drawing…

…knowing that a crowd of spectators were going to look at every move that I was going to make in a very public place like the  beautiful Library in Uxbridge, Greater London !

Well, I couldn’t ask for a better  outcome and experience!

The Library itself has a fantastic atrium exhibition space, I have exhibited there numerous times in the past but to draw live is a different story altogether !

To my amazement, as soon as I started drawing, I was of course in my element…. All set up : The Kurt Cobain Art Guitar that I proudly designed a while ago for Marlow Guitars was beautifully displayed on a table, next to it , an album of  mainly original drawings and signed prints and signed postcards….

There I was , drawing away while I could hear people footsteps behind me, then I knew the public was gathering in !

2 hours of pure : live drawing, interaction with people who had googled my name prior to the event to find out more about my art practice and stuff, loyal Fans who religiously follows me on social media , friends and ex colleagues who traveled for at least 2 hours through the London traffic just to be there to see and support me….

I would like to thank them all by mentioning their first names, they would recognise themselves….

Zoe, Keith, Darrin, Mikala, Malcolm, Helen and Roger, Muriel, the Uxbridge Library staff and of course the public that attended and interacted with me at the event…

Thank you !

Enjoy the photos taken by  filmmaker and friend Darrin Reeves….

See you all again next Saturday 10th October 2015 at Uxbridge library from 2 to 4 pm for the second session of MEET THE ARTIST !




I am so excited to announce that my 2 Art events :  MEET THE ARTIST @ Uxbridge Library are getting closer !

Can’t  hardly wait for October  3rd and October 10 th….

I will be drawing live at the library, so the public and fans can see my drawing techniques , interact and meet me….

This also is a never to be repeated occasion to purchase some original drawings at very modest prices, ranging from £ 5  to £ 35 .

Looking forward to seeing you all there in October….
