Pietro Tenuta aka Maniaco D'amore has always been passionate about drawing, since he was a child. After graduating as an advertising graphic designer at the Albe Steiner in Turin, he decided that communication and design would become two fundamental components for his artistic career. He works as an advertising graphic designer for a city studio but feels that graphics alone could not be the means by which he could have told all those things that he had kept inside for too long, supported also by his shyness. He finds in digital illustration a perfect compromise between his passion for drawing and love for graphics... he had finally found a way to tell himself. He exhibits in galleries and clubs in the city, collaborates with other illustrators, photographers and brands, "I believe that being in your room you never really grow, but it is in sharing, in the possibility of knowing ourselves and others even better..."
