How did you get into CG and when? : Started with CAD 2d drawings when studying for Architectural degree and i always wanted to transform into 3d those plants an views but not in a cold and plastic version. Day by day, reading tutorials, looking at images by other artists, talking with other people, and practicing, i started climbing the first steps of this beautiful ladder that grows from reality and leads to CG and i always think that looking at Nature and Real Life is the best start.
Does art play a role in your job? : Sometimes i need bending my passion for job (above all for visualisations) but the thing i really like and love is to make art from heart, as an expression of inner attitudes and feelings. A good friend of mine says i make CG in order to get a deeper and deeper control over things. Is it true?
What other form of art do you do beside CG? : Like drawing with pencils and water colours and on my site i've put some sketches that well represents my searching for expressions.
