About The Salon
For me Art is in equal measure a laboratory of imagination and a tool to reflect on life.

The cultural products that have encouraged me to follow the creativity path have almost always had the existentialist ingredient. I believe that identification with the others uneasy approach to life has been the main reason for me to try to use the creative medium.

Let’s say that uneasiness is an inclination that I have inherited and art is the way I use to deal with that fondness for distress. War is for this matters a very useful subject, it can be used literally or, even better, metaphorically to express the struggles of being alive.
