"Paco at Wild by Tart" is an oil pastel on paper dedicated to one of my favourite restaurants in the city. I first discovered the Tart duo thank to their column on ES magazine, and theirs were the few recipes I would try myself, not being as good as my boyfriend at cooking. I love how they incorporate spices and flavours in the most simple recipes, and I really like their aesthetics so when I read they were about to open their own restaurant I knew I have to go, before moving back to Italy! We managed to go there during our last weeks in London and it was a great experience,I will always remember that night. When I came back to Italy I bought their recipes book "A love of eating" to try and recreate that magic at home, and being reminded of my time in London. This artwork is very dear to me as it reminds me of those wonderful moments when we were doing many beautiful things, making memories and taking pictures of the city we called home for a while. Painting this artwork's been so much fun as it gave me the chance to focus on the beautiful interiors of that place. As a feminist I like to focus on different kinds of beauty and to include more men in my practice, drawing attention to a more varied concept of "beautiful". Sennelier oil pastels are my favourite medium at the moment and using them to paint and draw is just amazing for me, every time I am working on a new piece of art I feel like I am traveling in time, back to the place and the moment when I first saw the scene, and it's like living it again. This is one of two artworks dedicated to the same restaurant and you can probably spot the girl in the background and remember her from the previous artwork, where she is the main focus of the picture. I hope this artwork will transport you to London, a city with one of the greatest food scene and where you are sure to find a wonderful place where to spend an amazing evening, surrounded by great ambience and tasting amazing food. This artwork is made with Sennelier oil pastels, a great brand with a rich history: these pastels were in fact invented for Pablo Picasso, and although he is not among my favourite artists, it is nice to think about walking in the steps of such famous artists, when using them. I like to think as my art more related to artists such as Andy Warhol for the use of colour and focus on everyday life objects, and Edward Hopper, for the way I look at people in an urban context. This, like all the artworks from this series, has been treated with two to three layers of fixing spray; nonetheless I advise to promptly frame it with a glass too, to protect it from the dust. The artwork will be shipped rolled in a tube, I recommend 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. The artwork is signed on the front with my initials, and signed on the back with my full signature. Agerola, 10th October 2021

"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.
