Bruno Di Maio, one of the Italy’s best new figurative artists, lives and works in Tuscany, Italy.
His work reflects his great love for Renaissance paintings, yet at the same timea strong desire for expressive autonomy. Di Maio tries, successfully, in his allegorical and surrealistic interpretation of present, to give life to the recollect quality of the past. The originality of his vision is seen in the sumptuous subject matter, the quality of his chiaroscuro and the dramatic light effect on the figures and objects in his paintings. His work is happy, carnal, rich in colour and vibrant with light. In addition to paintings, his artistic training extends to sculpture, engraving, excellent watercolours as well as astounding trompe l’oeil mural paintings. His works can be found in private and public collections in Europe, Japan, Australia and in the United States.
