Rossano Liberatore takes familiar settings and paints his interpretation of them. By connecting these settings to his emotions, he changes a literal into an abstract, seamlessly.He’s not painting what he sees, he is painting what he feels.
He once painted a fresco portrait, using Old Pictorial Techniques which was selected as a gift to Pope John Paul II during the Craftsman Jubilee. He is a lecturer in Visual Communication and Art History at University of Italian Switzerland (USI).
I like this piece because it looks like he zeroed in on a miniscule piece of a map. He zeroed in on something that most people would miss, or dismiss as uninteresting. Making something utilitarian the focus of a piece of artwork, changes the whole function and definition of the subject. Instead of being ordinary or directional, a map becomes an objet d’art.
I really dig his work. If you do too, you can use the below coupon towards one of his beautiful pieces.
