Fabio D’Aroma








Interview with FABIO D’AROMA:

Your childhood ambition:

Becoming a painter, then a soccer player, then a painter again.

Something you treasure:

My son Luca.

Your worst habit:


The aspect of your work that’s most important to you:

Reaching a good tragicomic balance.
In the studio there are two moments that I really enjoy: drawing unsellable quick sketches on blank paper that usually end in the trash can and contemplating the finished painting when it smells like varnish.

Your first job:

Delivering mail on a motorcycle in Rome while attending the Academy of Fine Arts.

Someone whose work you highly recommend:

One of the best shows that I have seen in New York was from Paula Rego.
