I was born in Switzerland and spent my childhood in Milan, Italy. I can't remember a time where I didn't have a pen or a pencil or a paintbrush in my hand, although I began painting seriously at the age of 11. I started with quite detailed and representative paintings and drawings, then transitioned to a phase of quick, almost instinctive art with spray paint and acrylics, and finally moved onto more symbolistic art. My most recent activity involves graphic design, something that I started when designing iPhone and iPod games in school, and has now become a more professional hobbyò In 2017 I graduated from the University of Manchester, where I studied Geography BSc (Hons) for my undergraduate degree in the hopes of becoming an environmental researcher. I'm now attending a Masters degree in the same University to pursue this dream.
However, art remains my main source of relaxation and my greatest hobby and I've found my balance within my interests. I have been volunteering with environmental organisations such as the Woodland Trust (www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/authors/dael-sassoon/) in the UK and the National Research Council in Italy. At the same time I work as Lead Graphic Designer at Alitica (www.alitica.com), an analytics startup for the restaurant industry, and as a freelancer for the graphic design website 99designs.com.
