Many of my themes and iconography are derived from my family roots: the remote southern town of Ricigliano, Italy. The town dates back to 1320 BC, inhabited in turn by Greeks, Etruscans, and Romans. It's history is filled with classical art, satire, animals, dreams, penises, and fetishes, all of which have become part of me. I am an artist for justice and peace; my works are influenced greatly by world conflicts, 9-11, violence and revenge in repeated disasters of war.
