Nicola Samori

Nicola Samori is an Italian artist with dark, Baroque-inspired oil paintings, that are skillful reproductions of classical portraits, purposefully destroyed to negate classical connotations and question the purpose painting itself. His process involves skinning his painted figures with a palette knife or a solvent, then another painted layer on top, and repeating the process until the painting is overwhelmed, infused with signs of errosion, dominating the reworked surface.
