This painting was inspired by a scene in the movie "Grand Budapest Hotel". The two protagonists are travelling on a train, crossing winter melancholic landscapes, covered by snow and with few leafless trees emerging from it. The scene gives a sense of expectation, and what is dead in it suggests a new beginning. In most of my paintings, both on paper or on canvas, usually my work proceeds with the sedimentation of several layers of pencil drawing or chiaroscuro and oil colors. Often the pencil drawing is repeated over the paint and then again another layer of oil color partially covers it.
I was born in 1971 in Turin, Italy, where I live and work as an artist. My main artistic technique is oil painting, on stretched canvas or white fine art paper prepared for oil painting. Usually my work proceeds with the sedimentation of several layers, one after the other. And often each drawing or painting, also if it is sold alone, belongs to a wider series of works. In each series I try to explore and study a peculiar aspect of representation, decoration and languages. Once ended, the painting is finished with a coat of varnish to protect against sunlight and dust. The canvases are painted on the sides too, so they are ready to hang. I have sold my works on several online galleries. My sold works are never rolled up but always packed flat. I put them between two sheets of acid free paper with paper or cardboard protection for the corners, and then they are closed in a plastic envelope and bubble packaging. The envelope is stiffen with a sheet of polystyrene on both sides, and the whole thing is completed with a cardboard casing outside. Usually the artwork is shipped in 2/3 days after receiving the payment. All my artworks are original unique paintings, signed. Certificate of Authenticity included.
