CK: Tell us about the Italian Art scene…

EC: All are great occasions, I have had the opportunity to work with special people, especially in the field of fashion, but I hope the biggest one has yet to arrive!

EC: It’s not a moment, I’m proud to be able to live on art
CK: What’s on your agenda for 2018?
EC: An exhibition in Naples and a lot of projects that I still keep hidden for superstition.
CK: How does being in Italy effect your work?
EC: I do pop art, I love coloring inside the margins, a reference to the coloring books for children, I love the flat backgrounds and the lettering to complete the whole, in short I explode my childish side without too many qualms.
CK : What made you choose Serena Williams?
EC: The character and the fact that she is one of the most ‘pop’ tennis players, more colorful at times even excessive, close to the strong colors that I like so much
CK: What do you like most about Italy?
EC: Surely the story that is visible in every single stone, the kitchen and the climate.
CK: How do you like to spend your time when you are in Rome?
EC: I like to stay at Villa Borghese, walking for miles, doing the same road twice, the second time looking up, often we do not notice the wonders that surround us. Also, I love getting lost in the Monti neighborhood it’s where I feel closer to my way of life.
CK: Any tips for surviving the summer?
EC: Stay in Rome and get away from the many guided routes, misplace your phone and take long walks, it’s the best time to live it!
