..this journey started in 1998 with a poem and a self portrait titled: 'E Diurne Notti'

DeMí (Gianluca DeMichele) born in Italy 1980, is a multidisciplinary visual artist, lyricist, music producer and songwriter. Raised in Rome and Monopoli (IT), his childhood is characterised by the frequent moving between the ancient capital famous for its heritage, hometown of his father and the naturalistic and calming scenery of his mother's hometown in coastal Puglia. Frequent travel and growing up in these disparate settings as a child inform and inspire his work; past and in on-going projects. At the beginning of 2009 he moves to London, UK. Informed by academic background in Natural Sciences, Philosophy and Electronic Engineering his self-taught skills as a painter continued to grow from his childhood fascination in Esoteric Sciences, Mysticism, Alchemy and the Spirit Realms. An abstract self-portrait titled 'E Diurne Notti' , inspired by a poem written and then painted at the age of 17 marks his first questioning of the human experience on Earth, the dilemma of the ego, the wandering mind, the 'who am I' and 'where do I come from’. It was on a snowy day of February 1998 when DeMí channeled the instructions to paint his first work and that day marks his initiation into the visual Arts.
