We usually find the word “mosaic” matched with tradition. And unfortunately, mosaic is often stifled inside the label of decorative art. I wanted to rebel against this definition and have fun with my technical experience, therefor I decided to turn myself into a devout follower of Carlo Collodi, the inventor of Pinocchio.
In the famous Italian fable, an old carpenter decides to fulfill his dream of having a child by carving a wooden stump into a boy.
As a stonecutter and student of the ancient mosaic technique for over 16 years, the fusion between the historical tools of the job and my love for comics, movies and literature provides a modern twist.
