At first, Federico Pietrella may be mistaken for a stipple artist: someone who strategically uses small dots to create a large, pixelated-like artwork. Although that in and of itself is incredibly impressive, Federico Pietrella's work is on a whole other level. He uses run-of-the-mill date stamps to create his 'paintings.'

Born in Rome, Federico Pietrella is currently living and working in Berlin. He is known for a range of artworks centered around different materials such as resin, flashlights and even photocopies, but it is his layered ink dates that really stand out. Surprisingly, his artwork is full of intricate details. He manages to create complex city scenes and portraits that are full of emotion. These works of art are a testament to Federico Pietrella's dedication and patience to his chosen profession.
