Exhibition Party and video for Supremebeing UK.

I organized a party - exhibition at the Museum of Science in Torino for the british brand Supremebeing, showing a part of their new upcoming collection among a crowd of local artists, designer and djs who came to share some creativity around the huge tyrannosaurus rex skeleton standing in the middle of this huge area of the museum. Such a stunning place. I made the artwork for the flyer and art directed the event, Andrea Tallone took photos and shooted some footage that I eventually edited making video you see here.

Fabio Cornero filmed the most importat moments of the night and i made the video you see here.

Why Brothers? Cd cover.

This is my band's last cd, released in the US on a small label from Philadelfia and in Italy with a diy collective.
The artwork is conceptual, dedicated to a few artists whom memory is dear to me for artistic issues and for a matter of human experiences: Edith Piaf, Ian Curtis, Anita O'Day.
I mostly developed it with Photoshop. The hand writings on the background are notes and unreleased lyrics i wrote during the spring of 2006.
