Dab Mashin decides in 2004, after reaching the finals of the art competition PremioArte in Milan, to devote himself entirely to the arts and, after studying art and artificial intelligence in Tokyo followed by a 3-year world tour, settles in Berlin in 2018. A broad spectrum of professional and educational experiences in the economic, scientific and artistic fields, nourishes his constant desire for hybridization in both content (tactile paintings in destination to the blind -Milan 2005, a mixed-media painting on a Japanese tatami mat -Milan 2005, paintings with ceramics surfaces -Tokyo 2012, an Ikebana Machine out of industrial machinery and natural plants -Tokyo 2014) and context (charity collaboration, public art, martial arts, science, architecture).

His latest project ©DATAlity, a term coined from the combination of the words (Big) Data and Personality, is a direct visual transcription as an abstract painting of datasets from artificial intelligence, biology, economy, etc. The change of context, from utilitarian modernity to classical art, elicits an emotional response from the observer and may contribute to build empathy towards such "living" systems.
