Collection: Roberto Greco

Roberto has south Italian origins but was born in Geneva. After a CFC as a photographer at the Academy of Applied Arts Vevey in 2007, he graduated in Visual Communications, Photography Department at the Cantonal School of Art and Design, Lausanne (ECAL) in 2010.

His journey as an artist started as a child when his mother sprayed perfume on his pillow to help him to wait for her through the long holiday absence. That’s when he first connected face and emotions with the smell. Everything around him, plants or animals, had its own smell and all that fascinated Roberto. Every smell is an image that stays forever in his mind. The fact that he is now an artist helps him as he tries to transcribe all those smell into his artworks.
