Can you tell us a little about yourself?
Giacomo: “I am an artist from Italy and I draw mostly portraits and urban landscapes. I use graphite pencils. My hyperrealist work begins by drawing from a photo but my work amplifies what is not normally seen, uncovering a hidden feeling or aspect making it almost diverse to the original photo. Hyperrealism in my work displays the beauty of the imperfections perfectly, opening a door within the subject that is not normally depicted in real life. I believe reality is a beauty in itself so I don’t need to find ways to hide the imperfections of human nature so my work shows the perfection of the imperfections of life.”

Which artist inspires you?
Giacomo: “Caravaggio inspires me”
