This collection of images came from all those sweet and unexpected fragments the life sometimes offers. I am interested in the genre of carnet for its narrative characteristics, being a mix of notes, draw and color. I reproduce the reality and in the meantime describe my internal life while I perceive it, my outcoming memories, my consequent thoughts. This journey was rich of little magic moments: I met some people in their daily walks through Alba, and during the night they became virtuosi, playing music in the most suggestive places of the city with international masters. I felt completely involved in the music and my pencil run on the sheets trying to fix volatile sounds with permanent colors. There are vibrations that only music can generate and only paint can transform into emotions. I want to capture the intensity of the moments that contain a universe: this is what I try to do with my art.
