About The Artwork

A picture is worth a thousand words" recites a well-known proverb. Convinced of this, the artist cross Italy to capture the poetry of places and reproduce it by means his paintings, using a gold leaf as very particular support. Painted "en plein air" style by means acrylic colors on a very thin Mannheim gold leaf, this work reproduces a glimpse of Venice (the Rialto Bridge), exalted in all his peculiarity and natural beauty thank's the golden support. The real painting on gold leaf is size 35 x 25 cm, but is supplied already assembled on a white cardboard passepartout (so that the total size is 48 x 33 cm.) indicating the title and the author name, ready to be framed.

The artist was born in Genoa (Italy), where he started his maritime career as Captain of Long Course: and it was along the ocean routes that he began to paint. When he decided to change his life and moved to Rome, his multiform artistic inclination found out new ways to express himself. In the '80s he founded and directed in Rome a 32-page free weekly tabloid named "Il Salvalire", forerunner in Italy of free advertising newspapers with announcements, for which he was responsible for advertising graphics and photography. While he continues painting, he also finds time to publish three social-thrillers on the subject of nuclear proliferation: the first of them, named "Operazione Berillio", won in 2010 the first prize of literature "Le Agavi - City of Reggio Calabria". Today the entire trilogy is published on Amazon, under author's pseudonym "Mauro Natt". When he rediscovers his sketches of previous experiments on gold leaf it revives his interest for this form of artistic expression, even if revisited in a modern way. Painted "en plein air" as a photographic style shot, each miniature is first dashed with ink-pen, then painted with acrylics colours on a very thin acetate foil, and lastly applied on a Mannheim gold leaf background. The result is that of presenting seascapes and landscapes (mostly of Italy) exalted in their respective peculiarities and embellished by this particular form of visual communication, so that his miniatures on gold leaf, more than simple ones paintings, could well be defined as true "jewels for connoisseurs". Beyond that, the artist continues to paint large oil or acrylic paintings on canvas, mostly on commission. In conclusion, we can say the current pictorial season highlights a particularly fruitful moment for the artist, result of his very personal and realistic technique, as well as his fresh and refined brushstroke.
