"The piece refers to St. Francis receiving the stigmata from Seraphim. The VI refers to Seraphim’s six wings. Laudato Sie comes in fact from St. Francis’ Canticle of The Sun.
St. Francis is both patron of the city of San Francisco and Italy, my own country." - Basik

In 1977, while both disco music and punk ruled the world, I began my own life’s journey, during a habitual italian hot summer. Since childhood I spent much more time drawing on paper than playing soccer as most of the other italian kids did. I think that it could be considered kind of weird by any italian “signor Rossi”, but who really cares? Creating images just fascinated me.
When I was 12 I saw for the first time some unusual paintings on a wall of my city: I got in touch with Graffiti, that became soon one of the most important things of my life. Being a writer has been my way for more than ten years. It’s been the reason to spend hours and hours sketching and passing many cold nights outside on a mission and it certainly has a big influence on me and the way I visualize paintings nowadays.
