At that time the Pope was not only the holder of the spiritual gate to paradise but also the owner of great political power on the ground.
Romeo and Juliet’s story starts with the family fighting. But that is what is referenced: the war between The Guelph vs Ghibelline. At that time Verona was supporting the Ghibelline party.
The reference of that fight is the set of the romance between the two lovers. And even if it happened almost 700 years ago it is still relevant nowadays. We are so sick and tired of these fights.
History will repeat itself over and over again until we learn from it.
As an artist, I not only paint to inspire people but just as the art of the Masters like DaVinci, Raphael, and Michelangelo (the greats who inspire me today) I want my art to tell a story and hold it in history, passion, and impinge on the viewer in a way that forces them to think and hopefully shifts the narrative. It is through art that society can in fact heal.
My new collection
Romeo and Juliet is my new collection originally presented at Art Basel Miami in December 2021.
So yes, I created these paintings because it’s a relevant story that helps us rediscover treasures from the past and get new inspiration and hopefully culture. I created this collection at this time in history with a desire to continue to open the eyes of the World.
It’s a limited series;
High-quality prints are available;
Many people are taking advantage of this offer and to you I am grateful.
Help me spread the message by hanging this art in your home and sharing the story.
