Society

A Social Media analysis. Here, some famous and recurrent topics are presented: the digital vision, selfies, the ratings, the video down- or uploading, the “ I likes” etc... Sexuality, violence and the balance of power are perpetual common thread related to almost every online image.

Acrylic painting on canvas, 150 cm x 100 cm, 2016 n between two demanding works, I often take time to reflect... with larger scale paintings; skies or landscapes. Most lately the clouds in the sky from William Gibson's Neuromancer: "The sky was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel."

Play (the scream)

Play (the scream)

Acrylic painting on canvas, 56 cm x 65 cm, 2014 The scream is a ring between two “chains”: on one hand it is still referring to the history of art, in this case Munch’s famous painting, on the other hand it introduces the Social Media imagery...

Valeria Lukyanova (White Noise)

Valeria Lukyanova (White Noise)

Acrylic painting on canvas, 40 cm x 50 cm, 2015 With the three digital noise pictures I wanted to present some contrasting, sometimes distorted, images which point out to burning issues of our time and how this images are perceived from the “news” and “gossip” consumers. For example, Valeria Lukyanova is well known in Internet because, after several plastic surgery operations, she has become the most famous human version of the "Barbie" doll.

Aisha L. with Nihab (Black Noise)

Acrylic painting on canvas, 40 cm x 50 cm, 2015 (in the Atkinson Collection Gallery, Chicago) If at one extrem there is the "human barby" Valeria, overviewing the phenomenon, at the other side there is the Muslim woman wearing a Nihab or a Burqa... The noise is the interface in between that gives us the meaning: negative/black and positive/white.

Madonna del Bunga Bunga according...

Madonna del Bunga Bunga according...

Madonna del Bunga Bunga accoording to Caravaggio. Acrylic painting on canvas, 39 x 51 cm, 2015 A lot of people asked me why I didn't paint anything about my country... Now I did. The first portrait is of Karima, better known as "Ruby Rubacuori": the underage prostitute engaged by former Italian prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. Caravaggio would have done the same: make a portrait of a Madonna using a prostitute as a model. Also Pinturicchio made a similar portrait of the pope's lover

Acrylic painting on canvas, 39 x 51 cm, 2015 Toy: actually I was inspired by a photo of Dakota Fanning... in my mind the question just came up: who is the toy?
