Art & Philosophy

June 26, 2016

This article was published in 2014, on the Art Renewal Center website, and although is long, I think it's quite an interesting discussion in this topic of Modern Art vs. Classical Art. Ultimately, I don't believe that the two forms can not co-exist, but often I get I find myself engaged in this argumentation, since we are still investigation, as a society, what to do with those differences, which form to applaud, and which to...

Nicolas Chernyshevsky was a Russian painter who lived in the 19th century, who wrote an important essay called “The Aesthetic Relations of Art to Reality”, which influenced many artists during that time.

Hi! I would like to leave here an introduction to myself and to what I intend to do with this space.

I love traditional/classical art, and there is a lot I would like to do, but so far I've been just focused on learning oil painting. I graduated in June of 2012 from The Florence Academy of Art (FAA), an American University in Italy, where I was training to be a classical painter. I was awarded then with a full scholarship prize...
