Altomare was born in San Giovanni in Fiore (Calabria) in 1991. He became passionate about the art world since the age of 5, continuing his journey completely self-taught, preferring hyperrealism as an artistic genre. Altomare's work is based above all on the social unease of the human being, using people's faces as a means of expressing their moods. Graphite pencils are the favorite tools with which it carries out its work. He currently works in his studio in Lorica, also doing commissioned work and photographic projects.
