Recycled paper
The recovery and recycling of wasted materials has always been an interesting artistic experience for me, both for the ethical message and the intrinsic meaning of giving a new life to materials - that otherwise, would be discarded - to be turned into something precious and eternal. I transform the paper and the cardboard into a raw, heterogeneous, rough dough which, though, allows to create works of extraordinary naturalness. This line of artistical handmade paper creations is enclosed under the name of "Nature in Paper."

In this section you'll see the transformation and evolution of this new material which becomes «Work of art» thanks to particular reliefs that I create on its surface. The concept of «Work of art» evolves and undergoes a transformation, reborning into a new artwork.

Natura in Paper: Artist books
In this series I experimented and realized new forms and reliefs. The paper sheets were naturally dried by the air, then they were bound into creatures inspired by the nature. You can enlarge each image by clicking the button at the top right of the photo.
