Born in Italy in a family of ceramists for generations (Castelli, TE), I studied art. I am currently based in New York City.
Clay and oil colors are my first love. I believe that working in a single medium is restrictive to my artistic process. I use recycle objects, wood, stones, bones, plastic for a thick texture. I called it MateriCatini.
My pieces are directly influenced by Italy, abruzzo. I paint my interpretation of ancient villages, the nature, the roads with stones, the rooves, adding brilliant colors and personal shapes.
