ABOUT THE BRAND
Andrea Serra, a sculptor and designer, was born in 1981 in Lecce. From a very young age, he was exposed to the world of beauty through his grandfather, a wood sculptor and painter, and his mother, an art teacher. His eyes were nourished daily, and his small hands began to display graceful movements, shaping and sculpting various materials. With overwhelming creativity and a boundless love for sculpture, Andrea achieved significant milestones and experienced small but meaningful satisfactions early on. One such achievement was his first exhibition, where he proudly showcased uniquely crafted stone animals.
Currently, Andrea resides and works in a splendid open-air workshop located in the countryside, allowing him to maintain a constant connection with nature, which serves as his guiding force in creating his works. During his journeys, Andrea Serra becomes captivated by vibrations and unseen lines, which he accentuates in his creations. He allows himself to be carried away by emotions and feelings, finding inspiration untainted by the fast-paced and materialistic world that surrounds us.
