Artist's description:

Nº1 - SOLD - Frankfurt - Germany

This piece is my posthumous tribute to the thousands of persons that die every year trying to cross the Mediterranean Sea to escape the war or just following their dreams...

Makes part of an ongoing series of artworks called "Recycled" which I´ve started producing at the end of 2017.
In this series I revisit old masterpieces (mostly from Renaissance until Neoclassicism ) to extract personages or sceneries...modifying and mixing them (via... Digital Photographic Manipulation) and this way creating new possibilities in an unexploited context.
To this purpose I also introduced what I consider "the magical enigma" of Surealism and mixed it with a small dose of Pop Art`s contemporary irreverance.
All this mixture between different Art periods and technics intents to work catalysing the observer to travel within his own visual memories (from Art History) searching for the originals and then recycling them with a whole new interpretation.
Through all this process the viewer becomes my accomplice.

Size: 54 x 54 x 0.2 cm (unframed) / 50 x 50 cm (actual image size)...Printed with 2 cm white border.
