“My artwork that since almost 20 years is related to climate change. Nature, as a whole, is the fundamental component of my work. It is a way to return back to my roots. I lived the youth in the countryside of an industrialized area and I loved the sense of security that I had by being surrounded by land, stones, plants, animals. It was simply normal to live such a life but then, during my adolescence, I perceived a threat when I read about the Gaia hypothesis in a James Lovelock book. I was scared and I began to read science documents realizing that the increasing industrialization and the emerging countries development strongly influenced the global warming. I believe that art is a powerful tool of communication and that artists can use their creativity to say that a better future is all we need. The universal language of art allows scientific contents to be spread in the society. The hope is to create positive thinking.“
