Davide Meucci, aka DAVEM, is born in Turin in 1979. His passions are: skateboard, snowboard, graphic art, music, his granny Rosina’s agnolotti, charming and fanciful looking women. WHO IS THIS ECLECTIC MAN? Davem, who has always been keen on sports, begins his music career with the rolling sound of his skate, that rolls and jumps on the grey roads of Turin. Soon he comes with his snowboard to the silent and white mountains of Piedmont. He has been noticed by Burton Italia (freestyle team) and, thanks to sponsorships, he takes part to the Pipe and Jump Italian Championship for three consecutive years. Thanks to his perseverance and total commitment, he moves up the results board and his pictures are published on several sectorial magazines, but because of some accidents he has to leave the competitive sport. PHILOSOPHY His enthusiasm and the constant research of new ways of communication make him venture into graphic art and painting, preferring primitive and essential signs, sometimes inspired from a frail and tortuous inner exploration. Soul sounds become deeper through this intimate and personal path, and a need for livening they up prompted him to research new sounds. He grows up with jazz, blues, acid jazz, funk, trip hop, he starts to compose without inspiring to any particular artist , and using just its impulse, ironically defined “Davem’s belief” by his friends, expression which means a strongly personal artistic and music genre. ART DESIGN He works for one year and a half as graphic designer for a famous street-fashion brand in Turin, drawing pictures to be print on clothes. He warms up to this job and creates his own brand “Davem LTD”, which produces T-Shirts in great demand. Recently he has been charged with creating T-Shirt by an American factory (he hopes it is still top-secret).
