Strongly influenced by Baroque painting, Roberto Ferri (born in 1978) is considered today the Caravaggio of our days. Deepening his research in the painting of Romanticism, Academicism and Symbolism, he proposes a work with a crude, provocative speech, charged with a dramatic eroticism that captures any spectator. A modern painter who lives in harmony with the ancient artistic techniques of the great masters of art history, that go from the beginning of the 16th century to the end of the 19th century.
Ferri reflects in his paintings a contrast between the ancient and the modern, between academicism and the transgressor. His heroic and triumphant characters walk between light and shadow painted with a meticulous technique with which he dramatically portrays the anatomy of the human body. Ferri explores the nude with dreamlike elements that address dreams, the profane, spirituality, and mythology.
In short, Ferri updates the baroque with its heritage in an exhibition that will captivate the viewer with scenes of haunting passion, beauty and sensitivity.
