Roberto Ferri (37) is an Italian, Taranto-based painter and visual artist with a vivid obsession for the human body, demonology and the masters of Baroque. He finds his artistic inspiration in the works of Caravaggio, but he’s also influenced by the art of “ancient masters of Romanticism, Academicism and Symbolism”, such as, Ingres,Gericault, Moreau, Redon and more others.
With Ferri’s imagery it’s all about demons and fallen angels, mythological creatures, love, lust and dispair. His works are a refreshing sample of the baroquian nostalgia, a tribute brought to his idols. Roberto Ferri depicts in his paintings romantic yet terrible scenes of the almost symbiotic connection between human and his demons, transfigured here in a more literal manner. Darkness becomes the default state of human conscious and love – its humble secret ingredient.
