My little Mushrooms
Why do I paint and mold mushrooms? Mushroom is a incredible creature. What we see could be defined “the fruit” of a living being (the mycelium) that can expand underground for chilometers.
Not everybody know that mushrooms represent the end of the circle of life.
Mushrooms are those who change the remains of organic world in inorganic substance, so they are again available for a new life cycle.
It’s like mushrooms are the missing link between death and new life.
And, let’s talk about wonder: they explode in a world of colours and shapes that has always feed my imagination.
I have always express my ironic vein, to donate smiles and beauty. All of this became “Mondofungo” (litteraly a composition of the italian words for “world” and “mushroom”), a world populated by shrooms of every shape, expression, size, color, with a dominance of “amanita muscaria” (fly agaric), my favourite mushroom.
Below, a small gallery of comic strips, illustrations, panels, canvas and walls.
Canvas and panels are for sale 🙂
