Melkio was born in Genoa, Italy, in 1984 and has always been drawing. What this “always” means is Melkio himself who explains it: “for as long as I can remember it, but I have always thrown everything away… I made the drawing, then away in the garbage. For me it was so natural that it made no sense to keep them ”. In 2020, during the lockdown, his artistic career begins. His artistic career has grown in symbiosis with an imaginary, which we could define in constant expansion. His projects, characters and works communicate through a decisive and “narrative” line. The works are designed to underline the overall shape, at the service of a strongly surreal, romantic and hyper-unrealistic language.
