Inspired – Josh Huxham

So inspired!

I really enjoyed “Silence” series by the UK artist Josh Huxham. The simple juxtaposition of two vintage photos give an exquisite surreal final result.

This is how the artist describes this body of works:

Josh’s work seeks the inner thoughts which we do not share in order to avoid protest. After developing a strong connection with his heritage through archiving historic photographs and other family relics, Josh continued to explore the vernacular, allowing him to form relationships in a space in which he feels visible.

‘Silence’ aims to extricate a sense of belonging within a dysfunctional family. The work expresses an essence of feeling invisible to those who are closest to us. To those who are as yet unaware.

You can follow him also on Facebook or Instagram.

Liam Symes – Memory, Isolation And Serenity

So beautiful!

The Uk artist Liam Symes has his own way to see memories and the images connected to them.

His paintings recalls me classic vintage family photos, but transformed in brand new amazing contemporary pieces. Each subject of his artworks seems to float into an isolated but bright, colorful and abstract space.

Photo Transfers On Canvas 001


It’s been a while since I created something new, and I started this year with the purpose to make something slightly different from my usual works, but I didn’t know exactly what.

After a chat with a friend, I discovered an artist using a photo transfer technique on canvas, and I was truly intrigued by this new discovery. So, I tried to work on it!

I really enjoyed to do this, and I am still experimenting and learning from this technique. The works below are my very first attempts, I hope you enjoy them and as always, every feedback is really precious.

Romy van Rijckevorsel – Art & Nostalgia


The Dutch artist Romy van Rijckevorsel takes inspiration from classic vintage photos to create beautiful paintings.

Memories, nostalgia and bright colours are always present in her works, I love her unique illustrative style combined with old vintage portraits.

Inspired – Pen & Gravy

So inspired!

I love the graphic interventions of Jamie Palmer (aka Pen & Gravy), a London based artist that decorates home accessories and found vintage stuff with his unique style.

All his works on vintage photos are part of a series called “Reincarnated Relatives” where intricate lines, geometric forms and super bright colors give a new look to each portrait.



Inspired – Nico Mingozzi


I just love how the Italian artist Nico Mingozzi transforms classic iconic vintage portraits into evil subjects. His dark style is a clear signature that pops out on every different intervention he makes. Below some of my faves. Enjoy!

Digital Collages 001


As I promised on this post, here they are some of my first digital collages that I created thanks to the useful sources found on Hitrecord. I wanted to make some digital experiments on classic vintage photos using my signature crochet mask, and this is the result.

As I already explained for my handmade crochet collages, this project is directly inspired to “Uno, Nessuno e Centomila” (One, No One and One Hundred Thousand) novel by Luigi Pirandello. The “identity loss” of the main character Vitangelo Moscarda, is a smart analysis on how the perception of ourselves can be so different through the eyes of the others.

This is an ongoing series, I will show you just the first batch of images that I realized and then release other next week. I hope you enjoy and please let me know what do you think!


Daisy Patton – Forgetting Is So Long

I want it all!

I discovered the wonderful paintings by the american artist Daisy Patton not so long ago, and I totally fell in love with her works. This particular series really caught my eye, is called “Forgetting Is So Long” and the mixed media technique used is super intriguing.

Daisy collected found family photos, then she printed the pictures on a bigger surface and painted on them. The result is totally mind blowing, I really love the mix and match between a classic vintage portrait and her colors splash interventions.

This is what Daisy wanted to express with this art project:

By mixing painting with photography, I lengthen Roland Barthes’ “moment of death” (the photograph) into some semblance of purgatory. Not alive but not quite dead, each person’s newly imagined and altered portrait straddles the lines between memory, identity, and death. They are monuments to the forgotten.

Below a little selection of my favorite one, enjoy!
