Damiano Di Napoli's Artist Page
My name is damiano, i am a figurative painter from salerno (italy). As an Italian I have always admired classical and Renaissance art but for the past couple of years my research has been more linked to artists from northern Europe. in my work I try to create a connection between these two visions, conceiving art as a continuous line and not as a series of successive periods. my goal is to represent the existential condition characteristic of the century in which we live.
My art deals with existential themes, such as alienation and the search for identity or the loss of this.
Title: "Living in the end times"
Description: Work inspired by the text of the Slovenian philosopher Slavo Zizek from which it takes its title, and reflects on what it means to live today, through the material application of color and the composition that cuts off the head, symbolically depriving the figure in the center of identity
