Virginio Vona was born in 1969 in Rome, the city where he began to take his first steps in the artistic world. Since childhood his great passion for drawing and his first appearances were in the magazine Sportif et culturel "Intrepido de Turin" in the 80s where he published caricatures. His passion for drawing led him to undertake studies that began with a five-year period at a Federico Cesi school of graphic design in advertising in Rome, followed by two years at the Comics International comic book school in Rome and later two years at the San Giacomo Art Institute in Rome.

Presentation and artistic approach: My contemporary and avant-garde artistic reflections. My works reflect my view of the present towards a distant future, where the urban environment and human beings are intertwined. You will discover urban works with architectures in post-industrial megacities; as well as works that reveal half human and half robotic characters. Why? Why? Because my feelings lead me to think that human beings are increasingly linked to mechanics and technological dependence, whether physical or environmental. Man then becomes the prey of his own creations in which he shapes his destiny.
