At first glance, Battaligni’s work looks like Renaissance paintings – until you notice the walls adorned with graffiti and the tattooed skin of the figures. According to Hi-Fructose, one Renaissance technique used by Battaglini was the illusory vanishing point where compositions “appear structurally-sound despite their incongruous subject matter.”
Here are some more examples of Battaglini’s work!
‘Gentlemen prefer blondes’
‘Good Artists Copy; Great Artists Steal’
‘Pienso, luego no me dejan existir’
’Si vis pacem, para bellum ’
Battaglini is an Italian-born artist currently based in Costa Rica.
