In love with the sea and diving instructor, he takes his cue from the underwater world for the creation of new works. For many years he has been collaborating with the Natural History Museum as part of the International Underwater Photography competition City of Venice; in 2014 he exhibited “Wreck with Sharks”, in 2015 he made a tribute to Jules Verne, a life-size diver diving suit. This allows him to combine his greatest passions: sea, sharks and glass, of course.
