Based in Milan, Mattia’s creative experience started at age 13, studying 5 years in the artistic school of Busto Arsizio, where he was born in 1992. He decided to continue his studies by progressing to the Academy of Fine Arts of Brera in Milano, studying product and interior design. The strong connection between painters, sculptors and students of communication and enhancement of contemporary artistic heritage, greatly expanded Mattia’s already pregnant curiosity. Over time he learned to combine different artistic approaches, studies of Art and theoretical application of existence through readings and to begin building his own personal brand and vision. During his three years of study, he became drawn to the functionality of everyday objects and the importance of brand communication, which eventually lead to his pursuit of photography. As he explored deeper into the world of design, photographing the already existing objects and surrounding environments became more exciting than designing things themselves – and how different perspectives and his own interpretation of photography itself could be different forms of design. Within his last year at the academy, he began to focus solely on photography and its history. Taking pictures after lessons became a daily habit and an extension of his creative education, an enjoyable, calming, almost healing attraction where he learned what absorbed his attention the most. Wandering Milan with a camera in hand soon became the perfect bridge, connecting and channeling his learned knowledge in design and putting it into practice.
