Dario Barbera

I was born on september 5, 1973 in Taormina, Sicily. Since I was a little boy, in the baby-box I was browse  comics books and already in kindergarten grew in me a passion for drawing.

I loved to change my toys, draw superheroes and muscular characters, which led me to at mature age (because I was a great fan of Arnold Schwarzenegger) to approach the body building discipline.

In 2002 I decided to move to Bologna, a city that I immediately fell in love during a short visit, also driven by the desire to get involved. Overwhelmed by my new life, I abandoned drawing and painting for almost a decade to devote myself exclusively to physical culture.

In 2013 I discovered the world of "Hot Toys" and custom figures in 1:6 scale and I started to try some work.

Driven by passion, in December 2015, I make a crucial choice and decide to get back into the game by abandoning my job to devote myself to custom figures and working on commission.
