A LITTLE BIT ABOUT ME:

Roberto is an Italian multidisciplinary artist, born in 1977. He explores the relationship between pop colors and aesthetic beats, while adding augmented reality to it, unique to each piece, to complete the experience of the viewer, by using Artivive
His mediums are brushed metal, perspex, and metallic paper.

In 2009 he was recognised by Kanye West as his favorite artist, while Roberto was working for Yahoo! and MySpace in London.
During this period he started exhibiting in London and many other European cities. While winning competitions in New York and London (Ashurst Art Prize), in September 2018, he also received the honor to become the subject of the thesis of a graduate in fine arts, at the University of Urbino, Italy.

In 2021 he collaborated with French composer Franz Kirmann to create music for the documentary “Locked-In Breaking the silence” which won the Bafta for best documentary.

His works have been exhibited in Italy, UK and the USA.

ABOUT

A PORTRAIT OF LOCKDOWN

During the lockdown in 2020 I was in London, trying to figure out a way to help the NHS. This documentary, directed by Joe Pomeroy, tells that story and the stories of other artists in the same situation.
In 2018 I had the honor to become the subject of a thesis of Maria Giulia Briganti, a student of fine arts at the University of Urbino, home of Raffaello.

I managed to go there on the day to celebrate this success with Giulia, the teachers and the whole University of Urbino, for her to use one of my augmented paintings on her thesis.
