This brought about his first graphic creations under the name of Scarful.
He is a member of the WHY STYLE group, together with artists Joe, Nico, Pane and Stand, with whom he has taken part in exhibitions and events since 2003.
Some of his exhibitions over the past two years include: Vinyl factory, Mondo Pop Gallery, Rome; Urban superstars, Museo di Arte Contemporanea MADRE, Naples; Scala mercalli Auditorium Parco Musica, Rome; Roma caput mundi Mondo Pop Gallery, Rome; Dirt don’t hurt Romberg Gallery, Rome; The skulls of Rome Becool Gallery, Rome; On the way of mixed media Chiostri di S. Domenico, Reggio Emilia; Urban edge show Spazio P4, Milan; Wop Temple University, Rome.
