I was born in Puglia, South Italy, in 1982. The first thing I painted in my life was my dog. I was five. It was funny to see him running around the room painted in green and blue stripes.

Maybe it is a clichè but I remember myself always carrying a pencil in my hand and drawing.

I studied 2d animation at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Turin, mastering pre-production and concept art. Since 2009 I work as a Background Artist.

Some of the projects I have been related to are Kérity la maison des contes, Pinocchio (Enzo d’Alò), Unicorn Blood and Psiconautas The Forgotten Children (Alberto Vázquez) and Ethel and Ernest (Raymond Brigs).

After a residence at La Maison des Auters in Angoulême (France), I realised I needed to explore another artistic languages. Since then I have made illustration, textile and, more recently, ceramics which has become my new passion.

People often tell me that I have a naive and surrealistic way of seeing life. I agree but I like most to use the term Tender Terrible to define my personal work, which goes by the sign Pelo di Cane.

In Septembre of 2019 I showed my first short film at Cineteca Matadero de Madrid. Its name is Season and hopefully it would be touring around in 2020. 😊

Since 2011 I live in Galicia, in A Coruña, where I keep on working and learning.
