nietzsche

Robberto is a young artist based in Rome, native of Sardinia. I met him at the Pastificio Cerere, in Rome, and I soon find out that he studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti as well.

reminds me to the Marianne Faithfull of the Broken English period.

This work has been exhibited in The Room Gallery in Rome and at Museo del Viaggio in Positano.
