I love a simple tee and I left this part of the paper blank, to add light to the artwork
You can spot my initials here
I worked freely with my oil pastels to capture Ian's energy
Sennelier oil pastels have a great texture and it's so nice to add layer over layer of colours
I'd like to draw your attention to the thickness of the yellow area on the left

About The Artwork

I like to capture people in everyday life: in a cafe sipping their favorite drink, alone or with someone, reading a book, on the phone, on the move. In a welcoming, modern, but also ancient and nostalgic city as London is. I imagine them happy, worried, busy and I can't help but drawing them, aiming to share with others the way I look at the world. That is why I always carry with me a pad and drawing tools. Every tool has its own personality, a drawing made using oil pastels will have a unique flavour. I see my artwork as an encounter, an exchange among my inner self, the reality around me and the creative potential of the tools. I asked a friend what they see in them. She is a compulsive Epicurean: she seeks happiness everywhere, in nature, in the works of humans, in humankind, in animals, both in real life and in their representations. Every time she returns from a journey she takes home an artwork that gives you serenity, pleasure, joy and, if it is in front of the bed, it takes you into the world of dreams. She says that my artwork has this power. Sennelier oil pastels proved to be the perfect medium to convey this domestic scene. The brand has a long, important story, infact, their oil pastels were created for Picasso and it's so nice to think that I am following the steps of many great artists that came before me. Also, they way I portrayed Ian here reminds me of Picasso, in a way. It is so interesting to see how a tool, a medium influences the way I draw. What I love about them is that they allow me to create almost an oil painting but with the immediacy and the free of gesture that it's typical of a marker. The artwork will be shipped rolled in a tube, I advise to take it as soon as possible to a framer, to professionally flatten it back and to provide a frame with a glass, as the oil pastel needs to be protected from the dust.

"Mary Cinque is an Italian painter, graphic designer and blogger working and living in the Amalfi Coast. Her works – joyful, bright, colourful painting and drawings – are inspired by this place, as well as her heritage, background and travels. Mary spent her childhood between Italy and Ethiopia. Before moving back to the Amalfi Coast in 2019, she has lived in Naples and Milan, where she attended academies of fine art; and Philadelphia, New York and London where she improved her artistic skills and style. Alongside making art, she works as an illustrator and graphic designer, collaborating with selected brands, working on artistic commissions such as illustrations, labels and showroom design. Cinque’s art develops themes connected with what makes us essentially humans: our habitat – the buildings, the streets, the cities – our bodies, what we eat and how we socialise. Art, in Mary’s paintings, becomes a powerful instrument of philosophical investigation which reveals who we really are by questioning our habits, observing those characteristic traits we share as a species, often without realising it. The artist looks at human beings from a different perspective, making interesting and significant what can seem normal or banal to us in our everyday life: the buildings that populate our cities, the streets we walk, people sitting across our table at a café, strangers on the bus. In this nutshell interview by Giulia Corti, Mary Cinque explores some of the most relevant aspects of her art and reflects on how it offers an intriguing and informative perspective about the way we live as human animals. Mary, your art is colourful and vivid, it mixes human and urban subjects by making use of various techniques (oil painting; pastel drawing, markers, “digital” drawing, print-making etc.) and materials (canvasses, magazine pages, an I-pad screen). How do you choose the means with which to develop an artwork and how do the different materials and techniques influence what you want to convey, if they do? Different subjects call for different techniques. Buildings and urbanscape are always acrylic on canvas, while I prefer to depict people using a quicker, immediate approach, like the one that I can get with markers and oil pastels or digital painting. By looking at the main themes of your art, it is possible to notice what seems to be a tension. On one hand, you portrayed the stillness and artificiality of urban landscapes and buildings (e.g.
