  • About Me: Artist Statement

    My works are based on what is in front of me and inside of me. Suffering from anxiety, panic attacks and OCD, I exploit these diseases through paintings, 
    sculptures, photography, videos and music compositions to dig deep within inside myself. 
    They help me to see beyond the surface of what happens around me, opening a more complex world of sensations, colors and emotions.


    Michele Rave Grassani was born in the 1976 in Pavia, Italy. 
    In 1984 he enrolled at the Civic School of Arts ARVIMA, and participated in his first group exhibition.
    At age 12 he started to shoot short movies with his friends as his crew, and began to experimentations in film photography.
    In the 1991 he entered the Art Institute Michelangelo and earned a degree as “Maestro d’Arte”.
    In the same years worked as a Dj in locals clubs.
    In 1995 he met Stefano Musso aka Alio Die, who introduced him to experimental music, as Ambient, Power Electronics, Noise.
    In 2010 he again enrolled at the ARVIMA where he rekindled his passion for the Arts. 
    In  2011 he worked freelance, cooperating with various local brands and the Greek Folli Follie doing photo retouching, video shooting and editing, and music composition.
    The same year start he began the experimental music project Thysanura,  followed by other aliases and music styles, creating the indie label Hypnopompic State.
    In September 2014 he moved to NYC and was accepted into the Studio Art Intensive program in the prestigious National Academy School of Art  basing his residence in
    the East Village.
