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: "Selfportrait (forgotten face n.25)"
Description: this self-portrait is the last one I made from the series of forgotten faces, in which the facial features are vaguely hinted at and by now unrecognizable, reduced to the bone in a total loss of identity
