Though beginning his artistic process in photography, Aqua Aura has begun to experiment with short films, documentaries, installations, and video-sculptures. Constantly shifting concentrations to stay engaged and fresh, his work explores the sublime and challenges his audiences through involvement.
After graduating from the fine arts high school, Liceo Artistico, Aqua Aura went on to receive a degree in painting from the Brera Academy of Fine Arts in Milan. His thesis, titled Anselm Kiefer. L’altro Barocco: uno sguardo sull’espressionismo tedesco contemporaneo (“Anselm Kiefer. The other Baroque: a perspective on contemporary German expressionism”) was the beginning of a long break from contemporary art. During his years away from the art world, Aqua Aura traveled and aimed to expand his conception of the possibilities of art.
