Some Of My Works 73

Here’s another stack of works done a few months ago from the series “Mongolfiere” (Hot-air Balloons).

Mongolfiere (Hot-Air Balloons) is a sketchbook filled with altered vintage portraits ready to fly. I wanted to imagine the extension of each photo as an imaginary abstract world. Each subject represents a floaty and colourful balloon that walks freely into time and space.

See the whole collection below and let me know what do you think!

Tommy Mitchell Art

So good!

I just love the bright portraits of the American artist Tommy Mitchell. There is a huge amount of work on each piece and believe it or not, he uses acrylics for the colourful parts and ballpoint pens for the rest!

In the gallery you can also find some work in progress pics of the artist working on these paintings, so you can see how massive some of these portraits are. You can also find him on Instagram.

These 2 pieces are the biggest one created for my ongoing series “Gentlewomen“. They are vintage portraits on wood panel, but here I just used pens for the whole painting and decoration.

The pictures are both the portrait of the same woman, so I thought to create a “twin” decoration, where patterns are repeated in both pieces with some small variants.

They are available in my website into the collection “Art on Wood“.

Some Of My Works 68

This is an ongoing series called “Gli Strappi Sui Muri” (Tears On The Walls), that I am working on.

“Gli Strappi Sui Muri” (Tears On The Walls), is a brand new series about a personal research on memories and “history layers”. I wanted to imagine a wall where our memories (the photo) get slowly covered by time, represented by paper stripes and paint interventions. Every time we look at a picture it changes in time and space, revealing us a new layer. While we grow up, we connect with our memories in a different level, and time erodes them slowly. 

Some Of My Works 66

It’s been a while!

Here’s a batch of fresh new works that I am currently working on. I really enjoy to use wood panels and boards lately, and I think that the mixture of vintage portraits and wood gives a magic final touch to each piece.

Moreover, I can magnify the images to create an abstract patterned space around each subject. These works are part of the series “Gentlemen” and “Gentlewomen“.

For these pieces I used a vintage photo attached to a wood panel as a starting point. Then I decorated them using acrylic and gel pens, some of them also have gouache painting in the background.

You can find the whole collection available in my website.

Inspired – Helena Pallarés

So elegant!

I am totally in love with the collage works by Helena Pallarés, I was lucky enough to see her fab works live during The Other Art Fair in London.

She creates minimal colour block portraits using a mixture of illustration and collage, and the result is visually appealing and clean.

You can follow her on Instagram, and purchase her prints and originals here and here.
