He also creates trompe l’oeil, both in private houses and public buildings.
In 1990 he added a new artistic experience to his previous ones: using the body painting technique he creates and paints models bodies for different situations such as advertising pictures and commercials, fashion events and exhibitions. His personal artistic research has recently led him to the combination of the two traditional portrait techniques, which are photography and oil painting, laied on photographic support in the same way as Jan Saudek. His “master” of photographic shooting and manual print in darkroom has always been the famous photographer Francesco Radino.
His “Handimals” series started in 2000, where he uses the body painting technique, became popular world wide.
