Alessandro Roma (Milano, 1977)
I studied painting at the Accademia di Brera in Milan (1997-2001).
My pictorial approach is anchored in my formal training and years as a painter. In recent years I have delved into different techniques, exploring castings, printing on fabrics, ceramics and collage.   My new repertoire of inner landscapes, arising from both real experiences and literary sources, turning my imagination into something tangible and accessible to the viewer.
