Using the art making process as an expressive tool for his own survival Lorenzo’s work depict a variety of psychological portraits where contemporaneity, self-discovery, and historical references often marry and collide to create imagery that reach deep beyond the cornea of the viewer.
Currently lives and works in New York and New Jersey.
"My creations have been often described as mindful, ironic, naive, and sometimes poetic, provocative, even decadent. I work in a personal figurative style with influences ranging from religious imagery to modern symbolism, echoed by the actual and impossibly loud sociopolitical ambience. By observing the human behavior and condition, where the individual identities and singularities are essential parts of the whole that set our place in history, I create some kind of mirrors reflecting my inner visions"
