After 12 years of studies to become a priest, he graduated in Arts at the College of Art in New Delhi. He then moved for 2 years to Ortona, near Pescara, as a vice priest and then for 3 years to Lugo, in Emilia Romagna as a vice priest. At the same time he finished his master studies at the Accademia di Belle Arti in Bologna .
He later moved to Brissago, where he is now having his first personal art exhibition at the Galleria Amici dell’Arte, called ‘Views from a window, exteriors and interiors’.
He divided the gallery in 2 areas: one is dedicated to exterior views and one to interiors. In the first area the paintings reflect the landscape views from his window, the changes in the clouds and mountains, the majestic scenery and its beauty..
In the other areas he proceeds to an internal scrutiny of his personal life, with different seeds developing, where there is internal conflict and contradictions of human life. The clouds symbolise the evaporation of the existence.
