French-venetian, Nicola has a non-academic background in Fashion, graduating a Master of Mechanical Engineering. He completed a successful career as artificial intelligence and robotic expert which granted him to live expat years in Shanghai, New York, London. In 2018, he relocated to Paris and open his creative factory, The Weird Fishes Studio. He now produces set design, art direction, prop making for a variety of different mediums, from fashion editorial and advertising shoots, experiential design to music videos and live shows. His ability to imagine a stage and create theatrical venues triggered his willingness to develop narrative in fashion editorial. He finds beauty in imperfection and injects a sophisticated rawness to his art. His universe is a balanced equilibrium of modernity and nostalgic references evoking childhood and darkness.
