Il suo percorso artistico e la sua passione per l’arte lo spingono a studiare i pittori del passato sviluppando le sue doti artistiche tramite il disegno e la pittura ad olio.


Artisti come Caravaggio, Shishkin, Kramskoi catturano la sua attenzione e divengono fonte d’ispirazione negli anni che seguono.
In particolare correnti pittoriche come il realismo ed il Verismo gli fanno scoprire l’importanza della pittura dal vero e quanto quest’ultima sia determinante nella crescita della sensibilità pittorica.
