If it were a color, it would be turquoise.
If it were music, it would be a pianissimo.
If it were a word, it would be poetry.
That’s how we can define Diego Santini’s world.
It comes to life stroke by stroke, a light and metaphysical microcosm,
inhabited by somewhat clumsy and comical characters, who, as the artist himself says,
wouldn’t survive a second in the real world.
A single glance is enough to captivate us: the story begins.
We enter tiptoe, without disturbing this welcoming and gentle universe,
made of caring gestures, pure emotions, and feelings.
Looking around, we discover that everything is possible even if things are not in their proper place, just like in reality.
We ride imaginary creatures, fish for stars, reach out to touch the moon, receive gifts, and become children again.
It is from the child he once was, who loved to draw and doodle on everything, even school books, that Santini starts anew each time to tell us a new story.
Every viewer is free to recognize themselves, empathize, or create their own.
When asked how he defines his works, the artist responds with a smile: “Remember to dream!”
