We just cannot look away from Christian Tagliavini's stunning series, 'Cartes', an artful take on playing cards using models clad in his paper fashions and decorative accessories.

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.

Italian photographer Dario Mitidieri has traveled the world documenting festivals, celebrations, disasters, tragedies, and horrors. His photographs are just as haunting, beautiful, and moving as the events and people he captures in them.

A couple months ago we posted a fascinating collaboration between Italian sculptor Aron Demetz and Korean sculptor Shan Hur in which the two artists were able to explore the human figure by contrasting smooth and harsh surfaces. This morning we investigate further the work of Aron Demetz with his incredible Charcoal sculpture series.

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!

By far one of the most interesting and controversial artists creating public work in the past and still today is Blu. Never one to abide by a conventional art career, the Italian artist has been setting his own rules since he started. With his newest mural in Medina, Italy, Blu continues to question and attack our planets current political landscape, capitalism, war and of course religion through various graphic imagery.

This morning we are enjoying the work of Italian artist Nunzio Paci. Paci lives and works in Bologna. His fascination with anatomy begins with an analytical look, observing the matter while dissecting it. Only then does he move 'from the phenomenon to the complexity of the symbol and of culture.'

Italian woodcarver artist, Willy Verginer, creates these very realistic wooden sculptures of people, with an addition of a simplistic layer of color. Each sculpture is life-sized, entirely sculpted from wood.

If Salvador Dali lived today and really wanted to get into the medical profession but wanted to keep his artistic chops, we get a gut feeling that his work could possibly go in the direction of Milan, Italy's Valerio Carrubba. We have always wanted to coin a term such as "Anatomical Surrealism," but now we sort of want to call Carrubba's work "Anatomical Surrealist Landscape" painting.
