“Alfa Dog and Zebrave” series are set in a violent and corrupt world, where people wear animal masks (chosen illustrations below are part of the series which is in continuous progress ).
Matteo’s illustrations show ironic, funny and almost childish aspects that are in contrast with the adult topics (guns, violence, crimes). For the concept, Matteo was inspired by the cult movie “The Warriors” (1979).
In his works the element of the mask is recurrent. He likes to create a dystopic world that is able to tell something about our society.
