Fabio Coruzzi merges painting and photography into one imaginative image that offers a new outlook on an otherwise ordinary urban scene. His artworks represent an authenticity unlike any other: layered, textural, controversial, open to imagination, colorful, personal, and inspiring.

Fabio Coruzzi used acrylic paint, oil pastel, watercolor, ink and screen print on paper to create this one-of-a-kind original artwork. It is signed by the artist on the front bottom right. This colorful 17 inch tall by 12 inch wide artwork is mounted on a white mat. $30 shipping within Continental US. Affordable worldwide shipping options available. A certificate of authenticity is included.

Fabio Coruzzi was born in Foggia, Italy in 1975, and currently lives in Los Angeles. He is interested in the urban environment: the city, a town, a village - precious sources for human development and evolution. “Like any large metropolitan areas, London’s urban environment represents the jungle in which human being is finding recovery for its neurosis. It’s a melting pot of different gestures, different perspectives. Mixed media mold together these different perspectives, creating the urban environment. Contemporary culture is made of controversy: modernity includes ugliness, imperfection, and contamination, anything that creates texture.”

"I wish that each painting I make should be like a poem of the place where I've been. I wish to become a poet of our time, like somebody would tell: 'I've been there', but telling that my way, telling the audience that, no matter where we are, in a boulevard or in a restaurant, each single place is like an empty box that needs to be filled with the intense energy of our existence. Each place leaves a mark, like a scar, inside us. I wish that scar becomes poetry."

“…Provocative and ironic, Fabio Coruzzi’s language describes scenarios of social criticism, reflecting the cultural reality of our metropolitan society, sandwiched, as he says, “between the concrete and the asphalt”. Anonymous figures, chaotic spaces, urban life’s scenes, women and men in their working environments, athletes and hooligans at sport events, traffic of the city... Life flows incessantly within Fabio Coruzzi’s work and the author become a faithful witness of it…” -Maria Vinella, art critic
