"I'm one of those who believe that an author should count just his works. So I don't give biographical information, or I give them false, or at least I always try to change them each time. Ask me what you want to know and I'll tell you. But I'll never tell the truth, you can be sure of this."

— Italo Calvino

Bifido was born in Caserta, a city located near Naples in the south of Italy, in 1984. He studied cinema and literature, but luckily for him, never attended any fine art academies. In his own words, he would have to unlearn too much if he did. His tag and moniker, Bifido, comes from the Bifido bacterium, a natural part of the bacterial flora in the human body known for reinforcing the immune system and easing digestive concerns. To the artist, it seemed like the best way to define his art and practice. Bifido has always been a street artist, working on the road. He considers that the galleries are as similar to art as tests tubes are to life. His travels inspire his works, and his works inspire his travels, keeping him at a safe distance from being just another tourist. Recently, Bifido marked some walls in Budapest, Hungary; Marseille, France; and Mostar, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
