Mr. Di Maggio

I think spontaneity is the solid foundation of my work.
The need for an escape leads me to paint and the need for movement leads me to often work in large dimensions.

My work depicts my emotions and my life.
I often use the paper to symbolize the fragility of man.
I am determined with different types of walls and materials, even old, tired and crumbling.

I paint landscapes and views that excite me.
I work to evolve and often return to where I began.
I’m precise, sometimes abstract, sometimes naive or nervous.
I use oil pastels, vinyls, acrylics, sprays. I like to mix and improvise.
I draw bicycles and cyclists because they represent life: movement, fatigue, arrival and departure.

I am based in Milan, but I like to travel a lot and to spend some months abroad painting.
I have experienced painting in places like Tel Aviv, Halle (Saale, D), Leipzig, Chemnitz, Berlin, Boston and New York.
I hope there will still be many other places to experience and to explore with my bike.
