Our big 10 day art exhibition is on its fourth (exhausting) day. The weekend was very busy with crowds following a winding route through the villa, three floors of sculpture, paintings and photography, all by local artists. Its amazing how much talent there is in one small area and there is an interesting variety too.
I have had the opportunity to meet and talk with many of the artists and will be showing some of their work here.
The first artist I want to introduce to you to is Flulvio di Genova.
|Flulvio di Genova (pen and ink)|
Fulvio is an architect originally from Taranto in the South of Italy. He has been drawing since he was at school where he frequently got into trouble for creating masterpieces on his desk top. Nowadays he uses graphite to create beautiful portraits and ink for his artwork in pontillism inspired by his travels to Eygpt, Marocco and the Netherlands The portrait below is his most recent, although I had difficulty taking a photo without the sun reflecting on the glass.

I was allowed to have a look at his sketches and this one of a musician really jumped out, especially as Fulvio himself is a talented cello player.
