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.
Description: the painting is one of the many self-portraits I have made over the years, the theme of the self-portrait has always been used by artists to practice and analyze themselves as if they were both the analyst and the patient. the picture is made with various techniques, acrylics, pastels and spray cans, creating a contrast between the abstract background and the figure in the center of the picture
