When people put Love into their mind and heart, Artistry take place and produce Beauty and Excellence in every possible form that the hands can handle.
I Am very honored to have been invited to be part of this circle of Masters, so special to Me – especially because of the beloved resonance with Japanese culture, which this year is the special guest:
15 exhibitions, 22 curators and designers, 12 Japanese national living treasures, over 400 unique works, crafted by over 350 designers and artisans, from 30 countries.
In the second edition of HOMO FABER EVENT, I’ll be (p)art of the exhibition’s section dedicated to the art of paper crafting, called MAGNAE CHARTAE, curated by Michele de Lucchi. I do thank Galleria Blanchaert for choosing Me. I will also be available on the Homo Faber Guide, the digital platform that collects contemporary craftspeople protagonists of the future.

I was initially asked to prepare a diptych, but after the change of date due to the pandemic, the availability of space has been reduced and, so, just half of my Milano 2021 artwork only will be exhibited.
