For many years, Afro worked within the old tradition, where great glass masters executed the designs of others. In year 2000, Afro opened his own studio where he started creating brand new art pieces following his own inspiration and establishing his own style. Around 2004 his artworks, the result of a combination of classical techniques and modern colorful shapes, became famous and requested by collectors and galleries all over the world. He collaborated even with the great Pino Signoretto, famous master for sculptures in "heavy glass", member of the "Dale Chihuly Team".
In 2009, trying to investigate new shapes and colors, elevating his production to a better level, he decided to stop production for a year. At the beginning of 2010, according with Nicola Foccardi, already Ceo of Linea Murano Art (ex Linea Mazzuccato), a famous glass company in Murano, Afro have started a new adventure founding a new company, Art Glass Studio, that is taking him beyond new frontiers of colors and shapes. On Feb 1st. 2010 Afro unveiled his new art collection.
