These two paintings are two self portraits. Even if they’re a lot different from each other, they talk about the same moment of my life. I felt a big contrast, a duality. The news of my very first solo exhibition in Milan filled me with joy, but also with fear. For the first time I’ve painted a bright, but still confused self portrait and it matched with a dark counterpart. After I knew about my exhibition, I also discovered that it would have snowed. When snows in a big city, the pure white melts with the dirt of the smog. A fine layer of black deposits on the pureness of the snow.
