Can you tell us a bit about yourself and what you do?I’m an Illustrator, graphic designer and occasionally a photographer. I was born in Milan, Italy but i lived in Sardinia the most significative years of my life, now i live and work in Bristol as a Freelance. The passion for graphic arts started in the mid of ‘90 because I was really fascinated from the graphic of skate decks and the cover of music CD of metal bands. From this passion I started to think about how reproduce this kind of artwork. I ever had a computer in my house, my first home computer was a Commodore Vic 20, and I kept thinking that my computer could be useful in this way. I mean that I can use the computer to make art and not only to play! but the turning point was when a friend of mine showed me "Photoshop" i think it was the '97 and it was love at first sight. I've never studied graphic design or art, i'm self-taught.
Your ADOBE Inspire, Cover + PS015 Screen artwork is really fascinating. What is the meaning behind this work?
i've been approached by the Adobe Inspire team to create a cover to celebrate the 25° Anniversary of Adobe Photoshop, then it became the loading screen of the software… Adobe team gave me the totally freedom in the creative process the only rule was "celebrate the software" so, my idea was just simple "make something cool" using the "basic filters and tools" because everyone at the first approach with Photoshop use the basic tools and filters, just to play and also because i started my career playing with Photoshop.
