Gesture is the key element of Raul’s work, he paints with a primitive speed since his painting is a way to materialise an emotion. As a consequence a face belongs to a person met during his travels, the streak is a street he walks, the mark is a thought. Raul's art is also strongly linked to music: during his experiences abroad he blends himself into different cultures and he constantly researches symbolic languages to be combined with his art. Since he finished his studies in communication science he began to develop his passion for art, painting on any material he found while traveling. He exhibitions are numerous in Italy and abroad. His first exhibition was Wynwood in 2011 at Gallery 212 in Miami and one year later Hood Portraits opened at Cesare Manzo Gallery in Pescara (Italy).
