We’ve posted before about Nicola Samorí. He creates Baroque-style paintings, marred and destroyed in various ways. One thick painting slides off of the wood on which it was created. Several are portraits with the subjects faces scraped or peeled away. The destruction itself is unsettling, poking at our instincts to preserve and protect art, especially art from past eras.

The paintings of Italian artist, Nicola Samori, are full of sensuous energy. The thirty-five year old’s style is derived from the classical paintings of early renaissance masters. With the highest degree of precession, his figures emerge from the darkness of pictorial space into the light with dramatic realism.

As team Juxtapoz prepares for our trip to Italy for Fame Festival, we are catching up on some contemporary Italian artists, and Nicola Samori has come up in a few conversations. What we found was beautiful, dark, and classic oil paintings inspired by Italian Baroque.
