Nicola Decrestina

NICOLA DECRESTINA – 1989 – Soraga (TN)

He attended for 5 years the art institute “G. Soraperra” in Pozza di Fassa, where he discovered and soon developed a passion for the “faceres”, the wooden masks of the Fassa Valley carnival, where Soraga is -traditionally and historically- one of the most active places.
Carpenter by profession, Nicola carves his masks not only following the traditional models but creating a personal imaginary world that finds subjects in the actuality and in his poetic interiority.
