I come from Sicily
Born in Catania in 1978
I start my working career flyering in London, on Camden town’s bridge, making a lot of extra tips thanks to my mohican hair punk style that was worth 1£ per picture taken in the far 1995, I went back to Catania to complete my studies and there I got my Baccalaureate and decided to continue studying law at uni. In 1996 I already knew Dublin, Amsterdam & New york, having a great knowledge of English – very uncommon between friends of my age. In 2000 I had the chance to spin my cds in the gothic floor of the cult club Slimelight, where I lost my virginity as DjAri – I thank for life the owner Mak Ma Yuan that contaminated me musically during my early post punk/ industrial London time. But again, to finish my law studies, I continue to mix my alternative tunes in all the available clubs in oriental Sicily.
In 2004 I get my degree in law science with dissertation in criminology but I decide to not continue any legal career – even though my dad is a lawyer- and I transform the family’s Ville in Pozzallo into a touristic resort that will become my work for 11 years creating www.villeari.it.
First time in Berlin and Leipzig Wave Gotik Treffen
In 2008 the day of my 30th birthday I go for the very first time in Germany for the Wave Gotik Treffen in Leipzig and then In Berlin. A trip that changed my vision of life and made me decide to move and live in Deutschland as an artist. And In the summertime, I was still working as a manager in Ville Ari in Sicily.
Resident in KitKatClub and Insomnia
In Germany I become resident in the 2 most transgressive clubs of the German capital, KitkatClub & Insomnia nightclub, where I get a degree in the fetish world and a master in hedonism, thanks to Dj Monty, the Mistress Dominique Insomnia and the sexual guru Simon Thaur; During the same year, I start my career as Alternative model with the first photoshoots.
DocumentARI world tour spread for three years and made me live the most intense days of my existence. Filming in 3 continents, 15 countries: Germany, U.K., Spain, Italy, Ukraine, Russia, Nepal, India, Thailand, Japan, California, Mexico, Holland, Turkey. Thanks to these adventures, I meet and become friend with Gip Cutrino, inspiring tv muse since MTV Mad and Le Iene.
Where goth & fetish unite – Is a play party hosted every other month in the dungeon of Insomnia Club. It gathers mistresses, masters, swithces, and subs in love with “the dark” soundtracks in over 10 playgrounds clean and monitored by Devil’S crew. Whips, needles, bondage, femdome, wax, clinical are the ingredients of the performances and sessions.
In the dungeon of the glorious KitKatClub – Goth vs Psy
In the double identity of Dj and performer I combine the Gothic subcultures with the PsyTrance culture in a B.D.S.M. playground lived by a harem of subs and gorgeous mistresess. Hosted every other month with the international crew of Djs and performers.
