About the work
Nicola Verlato
Italian-American, b. 1965
Follow

Specializing in fusing Americana, popular imagery, and traditional painting techniques, Nicola Verlato is best known for his highly refined allegorical surrealism that recalls the murals of Thomas Hart Benton and the heightened drama of 17th-century Italian baroque paintings. Featuring spectacular light effects, twisting nude figures, and dense compositions, Verlato’s work depicts a dark future that recalls a mythological past. In 2009, he represented Italy at the Venice Biennale with a series of sculptures and paintings, the latter recalling apocalyptic altarpiece panels.
