Influenced by the artistic waves of the New York suburbs, he started his career as a “graffiti writer” and “wildstyler” during the late 80’s in the city of Milan, where the so called “graffiti” was a new art culture, just spread in Europe. Dropsy studied and evolved the American styles of “graffiti writing”, creating his own one that made him be recognized soon as a “master” at home and abroad. He’s been invited to many “jams” all over Italy and Europe: during the years he expressed his art on different kinds of surfaces, such as canvas, wood, metal etc. Nowadays, you can find this heritage in his productions, melted with different techniques, getting inspirations from cultures and traditions of various parts of the world.

A return to vinyl would be cool, there would be natural selection and the clowns would go back to the circus instead of playing fake phenomena.
I think you should believe in what you do, your passion must necessarily become a job, otherwise it remains a hobby! The hard work, at times, doesn’t mean salary or immediate payment, but it means sowing daily and then reaping the fruits, sooner or later.
Ups and downs are there for everyone but the most important thing is to never give up on your dreams. With this attitude I have built a career and a credibility, then what comes from what.
