Arturo Samaniego's 'Emergence'

Erotica // Friday, April 18, 2014
"In my series 'Emergence', the human figure is placed in isolation, submerged in the waters. The sea is a metaphor for the life that surrounds each one of us, with all its beauty and unpredictability. An element which can be, at the same time, nourishing and treacherous. " Arturo Samaniego is a contemporary figurative artist based in Naples.

Wrinkled Paintings by Stefania Fersini

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Creating an interesting wrinkled, crumpled paper effect while using oil on canvas, Stefania Fersini recreates photoreal fashion magazine portraits as a comment on excess and waste. "I’m fed up of going fast, tired of the excesses and superficiality. I need to paint to slow down. I take time off, to meditate, to fast from what is too much. To contemplate beauty, where there is some. I copy because the solution to excess is not to create 'new'."

The Oil and Watercolor Works by Silvia Pelissero

Juxtapoz // Thursday, October 24, 2013
Or should we say, the works of Agnes Cecile, because Silvia goes by that name as well. We are into the works of the Italian artist this morning, who was born in Rome in 1991. The works drip and bleed onto figurative characters, with almost rainbow blasts and dreams come to life.

Update: The Paintings of Agostino Arrivabene

Juxtapoz // Tuesday, September 03, 2013
At first we thought this was work done on top of found art, but once we realized this was the brand new series of Italian painter, Agostino Arrivabene, we liked the work even more. Surreal, fantastical constructions of oil on wood, Arrivabene's works remind us of dark tarot cards. Update: This morning we take a look back through some more of Agostino's work including his wonderful sketchbooks and drawings!
