Italian-born, LA-based artist Nicola Verlato (last featured in Hi-Fructose Collected 3) looks to the Renaissance for inspiration when staging his vividly-realistic paintings of collisions and catastrophes. The artist believes that figurative painting is vital to the mythology of a culture. In his case, the figures are rendered through a multiple-step process that begins with a photograph, which becomes a sculpture and then a computerized 3D model before it is sketched out and painted with oils. For our latest episode of “From Page to Screen,” we visited Varlato’s studio, where he took us step-by-step through his creative process.
